Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate dropped today for Nintendo Switch, and here’s what everyone’s saying about it.

Monster Hunter World Ultimate’s western release was announced earlier this year, as a Switch exclusive, following the game’s 2017 Japanese launch as Monster Hunter XX.

With both local wireless and online multiplayer, you can team up with three buddies to defend the game’s four villages from major threats, called “the Fated Four,” as well as taking on a new Elder Dragon.

The new G rank quest level has also been introduced, that pits players against existing monsters who use different moves and abilities to become even deadlier foes.

And the good news is that if you played the original Monster Hunter Generations, you can transfer your save data over to Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

If you’re new to the series, or missed the demo, your friendly neighbourhood Arekkz goes over everything you need to know in the video below.

Because the game was launched before Monster Hunter World, it doesn’t have the same quality of life updates, what with it being built from the foundations of Generations.
