It was recently announced that Capcom would be bringing Monster Hunter XX onto the Nintendo Switch which is no doubt pretty huge news for gamers. It was later revealed that there would be a limited edition copy of the game that would include a bunch of goodies such as a soundtrack, a backpack, and more.
Now as you can see in the image above, it looks like on Nintendo's end they will be doing something to celebrate the game's launch in the form of a Special Edition Nintendo Switch console that is themed around the upcoming game. It should also be noted that this is the first special edition Nintendo Switch that has been launched by the company ever since the console's release.
As far as the design is concerned, it is actually rather understated as the console still looks very much like the grey Nintendo Switch, save for some markings around the console’s dock, but we guess it’s not necessarily a bad look. Unfortunately for now it seems that this special edition console will be limited to Japan so if you live outside of the country, you won’t be able to get it from a local retailer, at least for now.
Monster Hunter XX for the Nintendo Switch is currently set for a release on the 25th of August, 2017 in Japan. No word on when we’ll see it released in the west, but thankfully the Switch’s region-free nature means you’ll be able to get your hands on the game anyway, that’s if you can read and understand Japanese.
