Capcom has announced that the latest entry in the Monster Hunter franchise, Monster Hunter Generations, will be released for the 3DS on July 15. Here’s what fans can expect from the next Monster Hunter game (though Capcom is also looking out for newcomers and will add a demo of the game to the 3DS eShop sometime this Summer):
Monster Hunter Generations allows players to take on tons of colossal creatures in more than 20 different hunting locations, either solo or via local and online co-op play with up to three other hunters. By collecting items from their hunts and adventures, players can craft more powerful weapons and armor, opening up paths to even more dangerous quests.
With the debut of new gameplay mechanics that include four different Hunting Styles and powerful abilities known as Hunter Arts to equip, Monster Hunter Generations is the most customizable Monster Hunter experience yet!
Monster Hunter Generations will also inspire a special edition of Nintendo’s New 3DS XL handheld. Bathed in “Beautiful Blue,” and featuring artwork depicting the game’s “Fated Four,” the New Nintendo 3DS XL Monster Hunter Generations Edition will also be available on July 15. However, be advised, the package will not include a copy of the game.
