During a Nintendo Treehouse Live episode at this year’s E3, a new trailer for the newest entry in punishing Capcom series Monster Hunter, Monster Hunter Generations was shown, giving players a glimpse at some of the hulking foes they’ll be facing off against. Quite possibly, they’re the biggest threat yet.
The trailer extends a world very much in-line with the mystic environments of previous Monster Hunter games, but this time shows off a selection of very unique beasts. It appears that “not all monsters were hunted,” and have since evolved into ‘deviant monsters’ to survive in the punishing wilderness of the Hunter.
The trailer appears to overlook a dragon-wolf hybrid creature dealing brutal electrical attacks, as well as a tough-skinned dragon with a hefty fire attack, and a winged monster with an ominous-looking hammer-tail. And shrieking its opponents into submission is none other than another variation of the series’ notorious Tigrex – this time named the Grimclaw Tigrex.
With a cast of fresh terrors to lead Generations’ already bursting bestiary, and the new addition of hunting styles and ‘arts’, it sounds as if players will have plenty to be surprised by upon the game’s summer launch. A demo was also shown during Nintendo’s E3 showcase, which can be seen here.
Monster Hunter Generations saw its original release in Japan last year as Monster Hunter X, but will be making it to Western audiences on July 15 2016 for the 3DS.
