Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch vs. 3DS Comparison

Monster Hunter XX demo is out now on the Japanese Nintendo eShop. This demo is available for the Switch version of the game and since the Switch version is in turn a port of the 3DS version, it is interesting to see how both versions stack up against each other.

Monster Hunter XX is a sequel to the Monster Hunter spin-off that was originally released on the Nintendo 3DS. The game was released early this year exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS with no plans or announcement of a localization for the game. This is despite the fact that the past 3 Monster Hunter games have all made its way to the West.

The biggest difference between both version is the jump in resolution although majority of the textures still retain their low-polygon look from the 3DS version of the game. The frame rate is also improved from the base 3DS version making for a much more better experience on the Nintendo Switch.

The latest version of Monster Hunter XX is on the Nintendo Switch and it  allows cross-play between the 3DS and Switch version. Capcom has recently commented on possibly Western release for the game stating that they don’t currently have any plans to bring this version to the Western market. Capcom is also releasing Monster Hunter World for the PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2018.
