Nintendo Switch Demo Of Monster Hunter XX Arrives Next Week

The Switch version of Monster Hunter XX is releasing in Japan later this month, on August 25. Before then, players will have an opportunity to try out the title with a free demo that is coming to the Eshop on August 10.

While the demo is strictly limited to the Japanese digital store, the console itself is region-free, meaning all Switch owners will still be able to download it. To access another region’s Eshop, all you have to do is create a new Nintendo Account and select the appropriate region. Once the account is created, link it to your console and you’ll be able to access that region’s digital store using your new account. The demo will be entirely in Japanese, but it will still give players a chance to sample several quests.

Monster Hunter XX was originally released for 3DS earlier this year, though only in Japan. The game is an expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations, featuring new monsters, quests, and other content. Capcom hasn’t announced any plans to localize either the 3DS or Switch title, though there’s always a chance that could change, especially considering how successful Switch’s Ultra Street Fighter II has proven to be. The company has stated it is “starting to prepare” more games for the console as a result and recently announced that Resident Evil Revelations and Revelations 2 are coming to Switch “late 2017.”

The next new installment in the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter: World, is arriving for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2018, with a PC release following later. Meanwhile, the series’ next 3DS entry, the turn-based RPG spinoff Monster Hunter Stories, is slated to release in the US on September 8. That game will also be preceded by a demo, and players who download that will be able to carry their save data over to the full version.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
