Looks Like Monster Hunter XX for the Switch Won't Be Coming West

Western Switch fans will be waiting a while for a Monster Hunter title.

Several more pieces of information have been revealed about Monster Hunter World, including the fact it's only launching for PS4 in Japan. But seriously, Capcom: Do you hate money? The long-running action-adventure RPG has been in the spotlight with the recent news that Monster Hunter XX will be coming to the Nintendo Switch and the very surprising announcement during E3 that Monster Hunter World will be coming to home consoles later next year.

"Monster Hunter World" is also available for preorder as early as this week, as well. The maps are also giant, open areas and there are no more load times between distinct map sections.

For example, word on the street is that this new Monster Hunter is going to get rid of the lengthy preparation phase that typically leads up to a big hunt in classic Monster Hunter games. Gameplay has been streamlined in a number of ways to make the experience more accessible.
