For months, a number of Nintendo Switch owners in North America and Europe have looked at PlayStation 4 and XBox One owners with envy – watching them slay giant creatures in Monster Hunter: World, unable to satisfy their own instincts. However, we’ll be able to embark on a hunt tailored for us, anywhere, from 28th August 2018 with Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate!
Launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is a revamped version of Nintendo 3DS title Monster Hunter Generations. Hunters will be able to play either on the go or on the big screen, with local and online multiplayer for up to three other players! Owners of the 3DS original will be able to transfer their save data to the shinier HD version as well.
Hunters can face off against the series largest roster of unique monsters in this nostalgic look back at the series beginnings and evolutions. Take on the role of a brave hunter on an adrenaline fuelled adventure challenging larger than life beasts. Completing quests will yield valuable resources for crafting countless distinct weapons and equipment fashioned after players’ defeated foes. Along their journey, hunters must defend each of the game’s four villages from major threats known as the Fated Four, plus an even more dangerous new Elder Dragon.
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate features a blend of classic gameplay and unique new twists, brand new explorable areas and monsters, plus returning fan-favourites like the lightning fast Zinogre and the stealthy long-tailed Nargacuga. This release introduces a new quest level called “G” rank that features even more formidable versions of familiar foes, truly testing experienced hunters’ battle tactics now with different moves and abilities never before seen in the wild!
For newcomers to the series, the gameplay features ton of powerful super moves called Hunter Arts that can be executed with a quick tap on the touch screen. Players can experiment and choose from six different Hunting Styles including two new ones called Brave Style, which rewards players with new moves for landing successive attacks, and Alchemy Style, a support style that grants the ability to creating useful items on the fly during combat. Hunters are encouraged to explore and customize the experience between quests to find the most personalized playstyle.
Originally released in Japan last August as Monster Hunter XX – Nintendo Switch Ver., Capcom had previously kept quiet about the chances of a localised release. Will you be joining the hunt this summer?
