Capcom announced a new Monster Hunter game. It’s called Monster Hunter XX (as in “double cross”) and has one rather messy looking logo. The game is for the 3DS and will be out March 18, 2017 in Japan. No word yet on an international release.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

I really, really wish they would release more MH on consoles. Especially after my 3ds vanished in the move. To me, MH is the perfect console grindfest, but they’re so against it that I suspect that they actually just don’t because they hate me. Me in particular.

I would buy a Switch just for the Zelda game and a MH console game. And I HATE what nintendo’s doing with the Switch. I haven’t owned a Nintento console since the gamecube.
