A trailer was recently released divulging more details surrounding Capcom’s up and coming action-RPG, Monster Hunter Generations. In addition to fearsome foes and fiesty Felynes, the game looks to feature a variety of different armour sets, including a set from Capcom’s arcade side-scroller, Ghosts n’ Goblins.
With nostalgic chiptune backing, the trailer (via. NeoGAF) oversees some of the plucky sprites of the 80’s arcade game transmogrified into one of Monster Hunter’s plucky Felyne comrades. to take on some of the behemoth creatures native to the game. The minute-and-a-half short shows off the Arthur’s Lance and Knight Armour from Ghosts n’ Goblins, complete with the sprite’s rugged, rogueish beard. You can watch the trailer above.
A trailer posted last month revealed (via. Eurogamer) that players will also get to suit their Felyne counterparts up like Amaterasu from another of Capcom’s games, Okami. You can see that trailer below.
Capcom has also recently expressed their interest in rejuvenating some of their older IP’s. Whether that means the company is looking to reboot some of their older games remains to be seen.
After seeing an official launch in Japan (titled Monster Hunter X) in November last year, Monster Hunter Generations was confirmed for a Western release this year during March’s Nintendo Direct. As shown in the trailer, Monster Hunter Generations will launch this year on June 15 in Europe and North America for the 3DS.
