So earlier we reported that Capcom had announced that Monster Hunter XX would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, and now it looks like more details about the game have emerged. For starters we now have a release date which is set for the 25th of August, 2017 in Japan, which means that those of us stateside will have to wait for a localized version.

However as we had previously mentioned, the Nintendo Switch is region-free which means that gamers in other countries can access the stores of other countries. So if you’re so inclined, you can actually set your store for Japan and access the game upon its release, but like we said it won’t be localized so you’ll have to figure out the menu for yourselves.

In addition, it also seems that gamers who own the 3DS version of the game can play with those on the Switch. This means that your friends who didn’t buy the game on the Switch or own a Switch won’t have to buy a new console just to play with each other. The Switch version will also come with Full HD 1080p support in both docked and handheld modes.

In the meantime for those who are looking forward to the game can check out the trailer in the video above.
