Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Free Demo on Switch

Fans of Monster Hunter series gets to enjoy a free game demo of MHGU on Nintendo Switch prior to release.

A little while ago, developer/publisher Capcom announced their decision of porting action role-playing game Monster Hunter Generations to Nintendo Switch as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. The game has already debuted for Japan last year and waiting for a worldwide release on August 28, 2018. Ahead of their scheduled release date on Nintendo next gen handheld console, a free demo will be available at eShop for all the eagerly waiting Switch owners from August 16th.

The title is not just a mere port of the 2015 Nintendo 3DS game Monster Hunter Generations but an expanded version, which is also enhanced with brand-new additional content that fans will appreciate. Apparently, when it was on the 3DS platform, there were 73 monsters rampaging around and now that count has been upped by another 20, making it a total of 93. Also, there are two new Hunting Styles called, Brave and Alchemy you need to learn aside from newly added Hunter Arts.

Back then, when it was originally released in 2016, the game was quite successful despite having popularity within a relatively small fan-base and thus, started to gain extensive recognition. Upon the release of Monster Hunter: World in early 2018, this action-RPG franchise has eventually become a global phenomenon. However, seasoned players of MHW should take time getting into the gameplay of MHGU as there are more hunting styles to master and many monsters to slay.

Many who have came to know about the series playing MHW this year may find MHGU very different but should not worry at all as the game is on Switch. So, you can carry it around and can get started anywhere in your free time. Known giants like Barioth, Congalala and Diablos have joined in Generations with two new additional monsters; Valstrax and Ahtal-Ka. Capcom reveals that the demo will feature all six Hunting Styles to keep you going until it arrives to your consoles soon.

After the game successfully lands on Switch, it will truly triumph over every major platform. Aside from this popular Battle Royale game, there were a few other big-name E3 2018 games listed from third-party developers for Nintendo Switch virtual console. Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball FighterZ tops the list, then came football simulator FIFA 19, one popular arcade title re-branded as Killer Queen Black, party cooking game Overcooked! 2, another free-to-play shooter Paladins and action-adventure Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

We did not include the name of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate on the list above for obvious reason as it was already announced earlier this month. Mario Tennis Aces is seemingly the only first party game from this leak that Nintendo is bringing on E3, which is quite unusual. Since there is no other Battle Boyale games currently on Switch port, Epic Games has made a well devised move to seize momentum on this trendy platform and score a big time competition here!
