For the first time, Capcom is bringing the Monster Hunter franchise to the Nintendo Switch. Capcom states that Generations boasts "the series' largest roster of unique monsters in this nostalgic look back at the series' beginnings and evolutions".

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will bring the classic hunting and online team-ups fans love to Switch on August 28.

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

You will take on the role of a fearless hunter challenging larger than life beasts that yield valuable resources used for crafting countless unique weapons and equipment.

The game utilizes six different Hunting Styles for players, two of which are new.

Launching as a digital download and physical release, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate allows players to go on the hunt for giant beasties as a group of up to three others via local wireless and online multiplayer.

Fan-favourites like the lightning fast Zinogre and the stealthy long-tailed Nargacuga also make a return.

There's also an even more unsafe, new Elder Dragon on the loose.

Meanwhile, newcomers can take advantage of the new Hunter Arts, which are super-powerful techniques that can be activated by hitting the touch screen. One of the key differences between World and Generations are the inclusion of styles and hunter arts. Hunters are encouraged to explore and customize the experience between quests to find the most personalized playstyle.

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 Alchemy Style provides a unique gameplay twist by giving players a barrel which can yield items with special properties, interesting buffs for your hunting party, or even unique attacks.
