CAPCOM announced on Thursday that it will release Monster Hunter XX for Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe under the title Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. Generations Ultimate will launch on August 28, exclusive to the platform. "If you played the original game, good news is you'll be able to transfer your save data and jump straight into all the new content on Nintendo Switch!" In Japan, the games were called Monster Hunter X and Monster Hunter XX respectively.

After its status was up in the air for so long, official word has finally come through regarding Monster Hunter on Nintendo Switch. Capcom has announced Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will arrive in the west on August 28, 2018.

For MH players that were introduced via World, this release gives you a chance to see how the game was played beforehand.

For Monster Hunter fans, it's already been a very big year. Finding fresh new ways to bludgeon virtual beasts to death is what Monster Hunter's all about.

Mandatory solar panels possible for new Californian homes?
Homes that are shaded by trees or other buildings will not be required to have panels installed as they will not be able to produce enough solar energy.

Players will go up against the largest roster of unique monsters and must defend four villages from major threats known as the Fated Four.

In terms of improvements over the 3DS version there's a range of new, old, and slightly-altered monsters, including fan favourites Barioth and Diablos, six extra-hard Deviant monsters, Elder Dragon Valstrax, and final boss Ahtal-Ka.

Hunter Arts can be used with a tap on the touch screen, and there are different Hunting Styles including two new ones: Brave Style and Alchemy Style. The Ultimate edition features more challenging "G" rank quests, with more powerful versions of monsters. The first is the Brave Style that rewards players with new moves following successive attacks. Not to mention that it also takes advantage of the hybrid features of Switch, so you can play it on the TV or enjoy it as a portable title.
