Capcom has come forward with a statement to Gamespot stating that they have no plans to bring Monster Hunter XX (Switch) to the U.S.
If you were planning on picking up the title for Nintendo Switch when it launched in the U.S. you may have to purchase it from somewhere like Play-Asia, and suffer through Japanese text to get your Monster Hunter fix on Switch. Remember, Nintendo Switch is not region locked so you can play any language game on any language console!
We’ve got our fingers crossed that Monster Hunter will eventually makes its way West, but until then we’ll probably have to settle for Monster Hunter World on either PS4 or Xbox One.
We’ll update as we find out more.
Andrew has been a nerd his whole life. He built his first computer when he was 8, started working in the IT industry at 15, and played competitive Counter-Strike at 16. His interest in amiibo started before their release but didn’t really take off until after the new year. He doesn’t like to admit it but Little Mac and WFT are among the amiibo that he had pre-ordered from Amazon but cancelled before their release. Little did he know a few months later he’d help start Amiibo Alerts. Gaming has always been his passion. He grew up with an NES, Sega Genesis, and PS2 before realizing that PCs truly are better than consoles.
The urge to be a little better, brought on by being a gamer, is what pushes him to help make Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal amazing communities. Together with the team he has built, he is realizing a life-long dream: bringing something helpful and fun to a large group of people. Andrew’s role at Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal as Founder and Editor in Chief allows him to create and build contacts within the community, review and present products, and stay on top of all things Nintendo.
Plays: Switch, PC, Xbox One, PS4, WiiU, 3DS, Vita, and board games.
