Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) has been announced by Capcom for the Nintendo Switch. Originally launched for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan, the Switch version seems like a port of the original, with crispier resolution but not updated graphics.

The game will be released ion Japan on August 25 of this year. Capcom has not confirmed a release date for North America.
Monster hunter is one of the most popular franchises in Japan, the co-op local multiplayer on the portable consoles helped the series to take off in the country.
