Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate has finally dropped on the Nintendo Switch after it was announced back in May. Another milestone for the popular console.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is technically not a new game. It is an expanded re-release of Monster Hunter Generations on the Nintendo 3DS. Gamers familiar with the series will hardly find this surprising. Capcom has expanded and re-released the Monster Hunter games since the very first game in the series. The titular Monster Hunter which first sparked this massive franchise was re-released with expanded content as Monster Hunter G a year later in Japan. Even since then, Capcom has always made it a habit to rerelease their Monster Hunter games with additional suffixes. Monster Hunter World Ultimate perhaps?

That said, Capcom made it a point to provide a lot more content whenever they do a re-release, and Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is no different. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will be getting tougher end-game content with “G” ranked quests. New monsters have also been added to the roster, significantly expanding what you get to hunt. The hunting styles, a mechanic unique to Generations, will also be getting two new styles on top of the original four.

Capcom has not forgotten about the veterans of Generations either. Players who own Monster Hunter Generations on the 3DS can port their save games over to Generations Ultimate and continue their journey without having to start all over again. Although we do not have any solid details yet, Capcom is planning a collaboration event with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind and other free DLCs and additional content.
