Tired of Monster Hunter World yet? I’m feeling the fatigue, but I certainly won’t say no to Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate when it releases for Nintendo Switch on August 28th. Ultimate is an enhanced port of the original 3DS game from 2015. In addition to having better graphics, it features a new quest level called “G-Rank” for added challenge, new Hunter Arts and new Styles. You will also be able to transfer your save data from 3DS to Switch, which is a welcome addition.
- Colossal roster – Take on the series’ largest roster of monsters to date including all-new monsters, Deviant variants, and the mysterious new Elder Dragon Valstrax.
- Co-op multiplayer – Join up and hunt online with up to three other hunters, or meet-up and play together via local play.

Even more formidable versions of familiar foes enter the fields with different moves and abilities never before seen in the wild.
