However, the series, according to Capcom won’t be part of the World game. Capcom claims that the game that would be released in Switch is a follow-up to 2016 Nintendo 3DS game which is Monster Hunter Generations.
The Monster Hunter Generations is actually a sequel that was already launched in Japan last year. The name, however, is different as it is under the name Monster Hunter XX. When the said game would debut in English, it would be known as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
Gamers across the globe welcome such development, saying it’s, in fact, a great series shifting to the Switch. But this should also serve as a stern warning for Monster Hunter World. Fans of the World claims that Generation is more classic than Hunter game, citing the game structure looks more modern and fluid.
They added that it would be great for long time fans of the game series. But, obviously, not the best entry point for new comers. Here’s a portion of Capcom’s description about the game’s setup for your reference.
“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,” Capcom said.
The game developer added that “completing quests will yield valuable resources for crafting countless distinct weapons and equipment fashioned after players’ defeated foes. Along with 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 is expected to be part of next month’s E3 as the game would make its debut on the Switch on August 28th.
