I hope the Hunter X Hunter dlc is included in the outside of Japan version, since the anime is doing swell on adult swim, and plus it's just lulz and ...o.o for those who don't know.

Aren't LUCARIO's paws adorable? (MOAR adorable than all of the Eevee'z)

Rev up those fryers! MY LEG!

Waiting for a West announcement, but this is HUGE! Japan is going to implode with this, Splatoon, Xenoblade & Mario Odissey. What a start for the Switch!!!

There some online save transfering app for XX just like with 3U.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Given MK8 Deluxe, ARMS, Splatoon 2 and now this, Nintendo should probably go into online subscription details during the spotlight event. Doubt they will though.

@Tsurii Me being confused. I misread an assumption that there will be save transfering from 3DS to Switch. However, Cross did have a save transfer to XX in Japan just last year, so it would be weird for them to just strand the saves they've already let people carry over on 3DS.

Since Tri was my first game and 4U was the last one I got(seriously couldn't buy generations because of cramps lol) I guess this is pretty much a new game for me?

I think instead they will, especially considering in summer for Splatoon 2 launch we should also get a first version of voice chat app

I would absolutely die before buying both the Japanese and English releases if they added back in underwater combat, the Flooded Forest, Ceadus and also fixed the Deserted Isle, Lagiacrus, and Royal Ludroth. Dire Miralis and Gobul would also be cool, and I would love to see a fourth gen underwater monster, an underwater mode for the Frozen Seaway and Zamtrios, or some crazy jellyfish online end boss.

None of that will happen of course, and if it did translating the styles underwater would get weird and confusing. The more I think about it the more I figure Monster Hunter XX's new feature on Switch will be two player splitscreen. That makes too much sense for the series and Switch as a social platform.

If we really think about it though Monster Hunter Cross only featured 7 new monsters, 3 new styles + hunting arts, and 1 new area; and Double Cross only brought 2 new monsters, 2 styles and 1 more new area. That's after how relatively small Monster Hunter 4's additions were, given that that game focused on bringing monsters back above all else.

I'm ready for fourth generation to end — I feel like it has taken several releases just to catch up to third in terms of new content, sacrificing underwater in favor of introducing many new gameplay styles.

That being said, I am SO ready to fight Barroth and Barioth + the new flagship and end boss on Switch with HD rumble and improved audio. I just hope Monster Hunter 5 isn't far behind.

MH5 would've been neat, but I don't know what to expect from a 240p uprezzed game on the Switch.. We'll see.

@Tsurii I never count subspecies, deviant or not. The fanged beasts in Portable 3rd get a bit dicey since they share a hit box, but I think their animations are unique enough to make them separate things, or at least as much as Great Maccao is separate from Great Jaggi. I wouldn't count any of the raptor variants as different monsters, whether Drome or Jaggi. I also count Seltas and Seltas Queen differently. Gore Magala and Shagaru Magala are counted separately as well, albeit begrudgingly, with Chaotic Gore Magala counted as a reskin. And Dah'ren Mohran is definitely just a reskin.

Accounting for the labyrinthine continuity I've described, Monster Hunter Tri added 14 totally new monsters, Portable 3rd added 7 more, and 3 Ultimate threw in another 2 (a flagship and an online end boss), bringing third gen's total up to 23.

Monster Hunter 4 started with a wimpy 10 even with its Magala handicap, the Ultimate version added the traditional 2 more, then Cross added 7 more monsters like a content patch, and finally XX added the final 2, leaving fourth gen at 21 brand new monsters. It just took an extra game — two more in the west — to get there.

Granted fourth gen expanded the series in a bunch of directions with unique monster concepts like Najarala, Seltas Queen, and Gammoth as well as what I think are the best online end bosses. Although I haven't fought Alatreon, Dire Miralis, or the new guy yet myself — and I though Dalamadur was even more gimmicky than Ceadeus and Jhen Mohran — I really enjoyed the Gogmazios and Nakarkos fights.

@Tsurii 3U was an updated port of the Wii game, right? From what I've played of those, the geography and the models are pretty much the same.

@Tsurii I can see what you're saying, but, 1: I am not counting again. By god the wikia is confusing for my purposes because it counts color variations, subspecies, and deviants like you do.

And 2: Monster Hunter is a game about animation for me. If a monster doesn't have a totally new set of attack animations, I just can't recognize it as new because it doesn't feel new. The exceptions being the fanged beasts because Azuros' bounding charge, Lagombi's snow slide and donuts, and Volvidion's rolling and literal tongue lashing felt very different to me. And with Shagaru Magala the game counts it that way, it's the pinnacle of the story, and the stage for that fight was so epic that I'm fine with giving it to them. Third gen still wins either way =D

It's an expansion, not only that it looks ten times better than the original to do updated models and all that. Most notable change is the shadows.

From what I can remember, Tri looked more...dull when it came to visuals. Where 3U was more vibrant, and of course there's the HD version on the Wii U. lol

@Joeynator3000 Hah.
So all those posts on the sub about "that looks too good to be on the 3DS" were right?

@Joeynator3000 I was talking about the Wii U game lol. It's an updated version of the Wii game, I don't think they based it off the 3DS game, that was what I was getting at.

@Octane Incorrect. 3U on Wii U is an up-port of the 3DS version (Tri has duller colors and environmental effects that were removed from 3U). Worth noting that the Wii U version was released a year after the 3DS version in Japan.
