Nintendo Direct: Monster Hunter X Hitting the West

Prepare for the Hunt. 

Monster Hunter X, the newest adventure in Capcom’s beast-slaying series, is now headed West, as was announced during Nintendo Direct yesterday. The fledgling adventure, renamed Monster Hunter Generations, will release across the US and Europe this summer.

The game has been out in Japan for just over 3 months, and has already found its footing amidst a mass of eager hunters – selling over 3 million copies by Christmas last year. The series has maintained something of a cult status in the West, however, and it’s a reality Capcom seem to be playing to. Generations will include extra rewards for playing the previous game. Players who possess save data of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will receive unknown ‘bonus content’ in the new game. To give newcomers a chance to test the hunting waters, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has received a 48 hour price-drop on the Nintendo eShop, to $19.99.

Monster Hunter Generations will also feature an armour set inspired by Marth from the Fire Emblem series. For more information on Generations, you can check out the game’s official Twitter page, or watch the announcement trailer below.
