For all of those who have impatiently been waiting to buy a Nintendo Switch, the good news is that they might get the opportunity to get the very first special edition design. If you are a Monster Hunter series fan, then this will be an amazing news.
Nintendo recently announced that Nintendo Switch will be getting it first redesign based on the Monster Hunter XX. It seems that the new console has been announced to come to Japan at this time, but if we take into account the popularity of both the console and the game series, it would be expected to hear news of the console being released closer to home in the weeks to come.
However, it seems that the announced design itself is not that amazing as one would suspect. There are no unique features added to the console or a special color scheme. Actually, nothing has been changed about the Switch tablet either which is very disappointing. The redesign with the Monster Hunter theme seems to be focused on the dock alone, which is not what will attract most hardcore buyers.
The reason why gamers buy special edition portable consoles is the fact that they can be carried with you and you can show them off to other people. When it comes to this new Nintendo Switch redesign, it’s a bit disappointing that the buyers will have to invite people over to show them the redesigned dock station.
Nonetheless, it is exciting that Nintendo is continuing with the redesign practices even if the new Monster Hunter theme execution is underwhelming, to say the least. It seems that the gamers themselves are still very excited about the game itself which was the sure recipe for success.
Perhaps the even biggest news than this announcement is the fact that Nintendo is making the game usable across platforms. The Switch version of the Monster Hunter XX will be able to be played with the 3DS version so that both Switch users and the 3DS users will be able to team up and liven up the communal gaming aspect.
Obviously, this is not a great news if the new console and the game are not going to be released outside of Japan. But, just like with every new tech product out there, users need to be patient and wait as Nintendo will surely not miss the opportunity to offer this to the western market.
