'Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate' (Switch) Officially Announced - Screens & Trailer

On Thursday, Capcom announced that the new Monster Hunter title - which was originally a 3DS game called Monster Hunter X in Japan, before being ported to the Switch as Monster Hunter XX previous year - would finally come to the United States. Unfortunately, a Nintendo Switch version of Monster Hunter: World isn't in the cards, but Capcom isn't going to leave Switch owners entirely empty handed.

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. The title being released in this market is called Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

Capcom has confirmed that the follow up to Monster Hunter Generations - named Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate - is coming to United States an European Union regions on August 28 2018.

This will be the first time that players will have a portable option to play both local wireless and online multiplayer with up to three other hunters, so you can play at home or in handheld mode whenever you feel the need for monster slaying.

If you're not familiar with the lineage of Monster Hunter titles, then we apologize in advance for the explanation that we're about to put you through.

Monster Hunter: World is easily one of 2018's biggest games.

In terms of improvements over the 3DS version there's a range of new, old, and slightly-altered monsters, including fan favourites Barioth and Diablos, six extra-hard Deviant monsters, Elder Dragon Valstrax, and final boss Ahtal-Ka.

Newcomers to the Monster Hunter franchise will appreciate that the upcoming Switch title features easy-to-execute super moves, accomplished with a simple tap of the touch screen.

Valor Style demands the ultimate knowledge of your target as you place a bet on your health bar in exchange for powerful counter attacks.

MHGU also adds new explorable areas and monsters, along with a new quest level called "G" rank.
