This morning, Capcom let out the news that they would be releasing Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch, with the game due to arrive on August 28th. This will be the first time the game will be made available in North America and Europe for retail. A price point has yet to be set, but a demo is already lined up for E3 attendees. Here’s a little more info on the game from this morning’s press release.
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.
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate features a blend of classic gameplay and unique new twists, brand new explorable areas and monsters, plus returning fan-favorites 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!
This is a very excellent addition to the console from Capcom and a game that Monster Hunter fans are sure to pick up in a heartbeat.
