    Looks nice and clean, compared to 3DS MonHun which is muddy, even for a 240p res game. It’ll be good to see Monster Hunter finally getting some decent graphics with 5 whenever that comes out.

    I wonder if I could import this.
    I mean, the switch is region free, so I don’t see anything getting in the way.

    It’s not like they put monster hunter on the vita any way. Also not before I get my darkest dungeon crimson court dlc and portable indies this life cycle.

    It seems like MH is slowly morphing into Devil May Cry the further we advance along the franchise. Those are some whacky moves.

    True. To be fair it is a spin-off, which is pretty much the reason they’re doing it. The X games are all about the fan service. I wouldn’t be surprised to see most of it gone in MH5.

    You absolutely can, though you better brush up on your Japanese. I imagine MoHun would be a daunting game to play if you can’t read

    Well, I may be able to access the english lang. option in the game, like you could for disagaea 5

    This isn’t really selling me on the game, honestly. Compared to pretty much any other Switch game, it looks bad visually, and it’s a port.

    Capcom, come back when you have a Monster Hunter game developed specifically for the Switch.

    Not as hard as you or I think apparently. Lots of players import the Japanese versions and do fine. There’s even communities for it.

    Why do you think 5 will have better graphics? MonHun has never been a greaphically impressive series. The graphics barely change. It’s all about the gameplay.

    I think it’s reasonable to expect an upgrade of some sort, even if visuals aren’t that important to the devs. Most of the series has been on systems with roughly similar hardware which is why the graphics have barely changed. There is Monster Hunter Online which does have considerably better visuals however, apparently it uses CryEngine. I don’t think 5 will go that far though.

    MHO is made by a completely different studio. The main team has nothing to do with them. I honestly don’t think we’ll ever get a MonHun game that has graphics considered impressive for its time.
