Capcom may not have any plans for localization when it comes to Monster Hunter XX Switch, but they sure are supporting it with some neat goodies in Japan. The storage case and pouch seen above are set to release on Aug. 25th. They're the only ways for a self-respecting Monster Hunter/Switch fan to store their hardware! Check out more pics here.
Fight alongside your own team of monsters
When a monster strikes, the fearful hide, but the brave? They ride. Venture into monster nests to collect eggs and hatch a wide array of species with uniquely powerful skills. Form teams, battle alongside them, crush opponents with combo attacks, and ride into the sunset a champion. Need more muscle? Then mix and match genes to create monsters with more abilities!
When a monster infected by the Black Blight attacks your remote village of riders, tragedy will thrust you into an exciting yet dangerous world, where you must bond with monsters on your adventure. As the story snakes along, you’ll encounter a wealth of side quests and hours of challenging turn-based battles where you must coordinate monster skills, rider skills and enemy attack patterns. The rock-paper-scissors combat system is a series first, a breath of fresh air for veterans and newcomers alike. It’s the perfect entry point into the popular Monster Hunter universe and a game unlike anything else in the series! You can even battle other players* online, locally, or via the StreetPass™ feature!
Oh dear lord, keep that thing away from me! That's some kind of uncanny valley stuff. It's too realistic, too weirdly proportioned, and too fake looking all at the same time! This monstrosity hits Japan on Feb. 2nd. You can check out more pics here...if you dare!
