Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
You will take on the role of a brave hunter challenging larger than life beasts that yield valuable resources used for crafting countless unique weapons and equipment.
With the chance to play with up to three other hunters in both local wireless and online multiplayer, that will challenge you to take down the largest roster of monsters to have ever graced the series – a nostalgic look back at its beginnings and evolutions.
That will see you defend each of the game’s four villages from major threats known as the Fated Four, as well as the mysterious new Elder Dragon Valstrax. Fan-favourites like the lightning fast Zinogre and the stealthy long-tailed Nargacuga also make a return.
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will also introduce a new quest level called “G” rank, which has even more formidable versions of familiar monsters that have 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 customise the experience between quests to find the most personalized playstyle.
And, for those that have already played the original Monster Hunter Generations on Nintendo 3DS, you can transfer your save data across to continue your journey in Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America on August 28th.
