Game data from Monster Hunter X can be carried over, with a one way transfer, to Monster Hunter XX or the newly announced Nintendo Switch version. Game data can also be moved between the 3DS and the Switch version of the game.

There has been no announcement of a western release.

BRAVE STYLE

Originally Posted by Gematsu

Brave Style is an offensive hunting style focused on continuous attacks, in which you can only equip one hunter art. The style comes with a “Brave Gauge” that fills as you parry monster attacks. When it’s full, you can activate your “Brave State.”

In your charge state, you can parry and perform cancel attacks. The latter can be used to easily fill up the Brave Gauge by great amounts to quicker activate Brave State.

In your Brave State, your evasiveness with some weapon types increases, and you can use the powerful link attacks and special techniques of each weapon type. Your Brave Gauge will always decrease while in Brave State, so it’s important to continuously land attacks to keep it filled.

ALCHEMY STYLE

You absolutely need those special barrels to use alchemy, but they’re not found in the Item Bag like usual items. You also need to fill up your Alchemy Gauge, though you can have up to 5 of them at once (one for each slot, most likely).

There are two flagship monsters;

Massacre Demon Diablos and Valphalk

5990 yen thats like 62 dollars

How much space I need in my Switch?

9.8gb

Can I pay with my credit card?

I don't think so, you can pay now with paypal though.

Is this a sequel to MH Generations?

Is more like a GOTY edition with all the DLC and more

Why no western localization?

Because.

Do you recommend the game?

Sure

Even if you don't speak japanese?

I'm not sure, it totally depends on you and many factors, if you want to play something quick with friends and you are used to the franchise, then yeah, if not, I would wait, try the demo and seek for some guidance like guides, let's plays, etc.

Hah, good OT title

Thenkzzz


I think that's it, If you need more information, please let me know and if I should change something let me know even more, this is my first OT so I expect to have some errors, please understand.

Playing the game on Switch feels really nice and Brave Style has been really fun to play with so far, at least with IG and LS. The areas just look really crisp undocked.

Man, I really wanna be excited for this game, but after seeing so much MH:World footage from the last couple of days, I just can't get it up for last gen MH anymore. :(

That said, I'll probably still pick this up.

I have this ordered from Amazon JP. Not sure how I feel about it given that Generations/X was one of my least favorite titles in the series. But it's MH and it's on the Switch...hard to argue with it. Glad I'll have a few GAF peeps to do some hunts with since I didn't love the solo experience on Gen.

My Japanese is terrible, but I know my Kana and I've put a few thousand hours into the series, so I'm ready to tough out any learning curves. So happy to have another portable Monster Hunter, hopefully it's not the last.

Trying to learn what all the bowgun shots are without being able to read Japanese is liable to be a huge pain, as is having to start over from the beginning. But I have zero interest in any Monster Hunter I can't carry around the house in portable form, so I may wind up caving in for this despite the hassles. That'll probably mean Capcpom will localize it later on just to mess with me.

That is all done with maybe a .5% understanding of the language. Granted also done with a very complete understanding of the "Monster Hunter" Language though =)

I didn't see anything like that. Transfer is pretty straghtorward. You upload from 3ds to Capcom servers. Then on Switch you download it. Just a straight across transfer. I could have missed something, but I was translating every screen along the way and saw zero mention of it.

I take it homebrewing and converting save is a difficult process? I wouldn't even know where to start with that.

I'd pretty much have to because I'm in no mood for 3DS hackery either. But if I do, I think I'll try light bowgunning it from the start instead for a change of pace.

I will be. My 3DS has no homebrew so I can;t change my Gen save to a X save.

Amazing OT. Looking forward to digging into it soon, puppies permitting. Likely means i won't get a lot of online in any time soon but i should be able to tackle some single player stuff.

Pro-tip for people playing who can't read japanese - google translate app lets your take pictures of japanese text and it translates it for you - lifesaver on MH4 for me - should be even easier on switch since it's not 240p.

From what I've read it's pretty simple actually. There have been some bans recently but apparently they have workarounds for that now. There's always a risk though, and I kind of want to start fresh anyway, so no point for me I suppose.

You're better off learning hiragana/katakana (about 80~ characters in total) the same way. Free flashcard apps on phones and tons of resources. Once you do that you realize most of the japanese words are just weirdly written english words and you can navigate menus and items super easily.

So like - ハンマー = Ha n ma- = hamma- = hammer.

ヘビィボウガン = he bi i bo u ga n = hebi bougan = heavy bowgun.

I learned both after practicing for maybe an hour a day for a couple weeks. It's super doable in your free time.

I know both, it's the Kanji stuff I don't know or what the hirigana say without looking up each word. At least Katakana I can most of the time assume as it's foreign words usually.

Good stuff, ty!

Pro-tip for the pro-tip! Know that, in my experience at least, the Instant Translate feature for Japanese Language can be a bit less exact than the manual translation option (take a photo, swipe over the text you want to translate). Just in case any of you try it, have Instant on and aren't getting very understandable results =P Try turning Instant off and see if that helps you. It is not every time that the results are a bit silly with Instant, but often (for me).

While it's a bit more work, learning a few common kanji used in the MH lexicon will help tremendously. Things like
牙 = fang
爪 = claw
for example.
