From the stream footage it doesn't look that much better (visually speaking) than the 3DS version. Kind of a bummer.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Looks great and the release is earlier than expected.

Goodbye 240p Monster Hunter.

Looks like it can also play against owners of the original Monster Hunter X/Generations! o_O

Meaning even if they leave the 3DS ver behind in JP, there's still cross play with Generations! Smart! I assume fights against XX-only monsters are not compatible right? Was X and XX on 3DS already compatible with each other?

Capcom keeps finding ways to not make next-gen assets for Monster Hunter. Can't wait for this series to actually get some good looking art when they are forced to make the next version.

Looks the same heh. Cool that it supports cross play. Will it take a year to get localized though :eek:?

Am I crazy to think this will release in the west in 2017?
Not crazy, but I'm not sure where there's a good spot for it with what we know is coming out, especially with Monster Hunter Stories hitting in October. I expect that this will be a February/March title to give it a bigger spotlight.

Would like to be wrong, though!

Ohhh, save transfers? And MHX data can be imported into XX on 3DS... hope it can go X->XX 3DS->Switch and by proxy carry that over to Generations and... Generations Ultimate? Generations X? Generations Generations? Whatever.

Not anywhere
Looks exactly as expected, a cleaner, better res textures of the 3DS version. Won't mind a bit when I'm shooting giant cannons on Brachydios.
