Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate: 7 Things You Need To Know
The quest action game has come exclusively to Switch. Here’s what you need to know before you play.
The sword-swishing action role playing game promises co-op quests you can play ANYWHERE thanks to the Switch. So whether you’ve quested before, or this is your first time playing a Monster Hunter game (think Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, but waaaaaay more deadly), here’s what you need to know…
It’s the follow up to Monster Hunter Generations
The previous game first came out on the Nintendo 3DS in 2015. This expanded version is now exclusive to Nintendo Switch, and boasts shiny new HD graphics, and a ton of new features. Oooh, monstery!
It might just be your new fave party game
Why take down a great big monster on your own when you could bring three mates along to help? That’s basically a leg each! Depending on the monster, obvs.
Invite your pals round and get ready to take on some epic Monster Huntin’ co-op quests together. Gather three of your friends round to play local 4 player co-op, or you can still quest together online if you’re not all in the same room.
You can still accept quests solo if you’re more of an independent hunter who don’t need no team
Some of us just have mates who are constantly getting lost and killed by tiny little bird monsters, and that’s ok.
Experienced hunters can take on the challenge of an even harder new difficulty
The new quest level, ‘G’ rank, is tougher than Generations’ previous high level quests, where tougher opponents will appear with never-before-seen abilities, to really test your skillz.
There are two brand new ways of playing
In Generations, there were four gameplay styles and super moves: now, the Hunter Arts have evolved to include two brand new ones: ‘Brave Style’, where you land a load of attacks in series to build up a meter which will give you powerful new weapon combos, and ‘Alchemy Style’, where you can support your team by creating useful items when you need them during combat.
You’re gonna be fighting LOADS AND LOADS of crazy ass monsters
The new game’s lineup of monsters to take down is even bigger than the actual giant beasts you’ll be hunting. The roster features all-new monsters, including the mysterious new Elder Dragon, Valstrax, which is basically a DRAGON WITH ROCKETS.
Like, there’s literally A DRAGON WITH ROCKETS
Seriously, what else is there to know?
