.This month Nintendo Switch released the first ever special edition hardware. The Nintendo Switch Monster Hunter XX theme follows last month’s announcement that Monster Hunter XX was being launched for the Nintendo Switch. Less than a month later we have our first look at the Nintendo Switch Special Edition Monster Hunter XX game console.
Nintendo Switch Special Edition Released
Nintendo and Capcom previously released images of the Switch special edition dock but now Capcom has revealed the Monster Hunter XX special design and official packaging. As you can see from the pictures of the special edition Nintendo Switch, the design is simple and classic. The Monster Hunter XX dragon eclipses the Nintendo Switch logo in size and also is highlighted by a banner at the top of the console.
Monster Hunter XX was first announced in October 2016, and then released in Japan on the 3DS in March 2017 (it has yet to be announced for the west). For those that don’t know, it is simply an expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations. At the moment of writing this Monster Hunter XX has sold 1.5 million copies at retail alone.
Nintendo Switch & the Evolution of Gaming
Nintendo has claimed a great success with the Nintendo Switch so far and the release of special edition switch consoles shows that Nintendo is planning an aggressive entrance for the revolutionary Switch. Although sales figures are still unknown, the Nintendo Switch has tough competition in the console market from Sony Playstation 4 and the new Xbox One X. However Nintendo has stuck with their strengths and released a console product that rethinks the way we interact with our game systems. By blending together a desktop and mobile console into one rather impressive piece of engineering, Nintendo seeks less to compete with players like Playstation and Xbox and more to carve its own niche.
This year’s E3 conference will show off the latest in Nintendo Switch’s hardware and game options. The special edition Switch is certainly a neat gimmick. However we are waiting to see the new games promised for the Switch live up to expectations. Sales continue to grow for Nintendo. We think you will be seeing more Nintendo Switch consoles next to Playstations and Xboxs this year!
