Capcom began streaming a third promotional video for its upcoming Monster Hunter XX (pronounced as "Double Cross") Nintendo 3DS game on Thursday. The video shows gameplay of battles with new and returning monsters.
Monster Hunter XX will feature a new "Style Power-up," which allows players to designate a Hunting Art as an "SP Art," granting benefits to the whole party on activation. The game will also include a new new Brave Style, a new field called "Igunrei" and a new "Ryūshikisen" base. The game will feature six main monsters (pictured in second image below), including: Gammoth, Astalos, Mizutsune, and Glavenus, and the new main monsters Balfarc (pictured in third image below) and a new Diablos variant.
The game will ship in Japan on March 18. Those who have save data from Monster Hunter X (pronounced "Cross") can transfer their save data to Monster Hunter XX. Additionally, those who have save data from Monster Hunter Stories will also get a special bonus in Monster Hunter XX.
The game will retail for 5,800 yen (about US$55) for the package version, and 5,546 yen (US$53) for the download version.
