Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Coming To Nintendo Switch
Capcom will release Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate game on Nintendo Switch this summer, the first entry in the franchise to come to the console in the West. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, which updates the 2016 Nintendo 3DS release for Switch, launches Aug. 28.
While it’s great to see the series shift to the Switch, fans of World should be careful. While that game merged the iconic Monster Hunter gameplay with a structure that felt more fluid and modern, Generations is a much more classic Monster Hunter game. It’s great for existing fans of the series, but it’s not the best entry point for newcomers. Here’s how Capcom describes the setup:
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-fueled 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.
Generations Ultimate will be on show at E3 next month, and the game will make its debut on the Switch on August 28th.
