Capcom Releasing A Region-Free Demo Of 'Monster Hunter XX'

Capcom sent out the word yesterday that Monster Hunter XX would be getting a demo for people to try out, but the real gem to this news is that the demo is going to be region-free. The game is slated to be released in Japan with no word on North American or European dates yet, but the upcoming demo on August 10th can be played by anyone in any region of the world on a Nintendo Switch, totally free.

Capcom Releasing A Region-Free Demo Of 'Monster Hunter XX'

Now, whether or not this is Capcom testing the waters and seeing if releasing the game beyond Japan is a viable option is up to you to decide. But honestly, I can't see a reason why the company would hold back on releasing Monster Hunter XX to the rest of the world, especially after all the buzz that Monster Hunter: World has going for it.

If there is a chance that the company is getting cold feet on putting this game out anywhere beyond Capcom's home turf, at the very least you'll get a chance to play a new Japanese game first-hand before it is released on August 25th. Speaking of, you might need to know how to read a bit of Kanji, unless you can wing it.
