Since it’s release in Japan in November of 2015, fans of Monster Hunter have been waiting tensely clutching their Brachydios plushies wondering when Generations is going to be localized for the west.
Bad news is, we don’t know any exact dates yet. Good news? We know it’s summer sometime. So there’s that.
But let’s start compiling hype here, a lot has been revamped. Hunters are going to have a lot of ways to customize and optimize how they deal with monsters.
There’s tons to cover in new combat content with the addition of 4 different hunting styles: Aerial, Adept(Bushido), Guild, and Striker which is certainly going to mix up Monster Hunter as you’re used to.
