Monster Hunter: Generations is the latest installment of the popular 3DS series that has been imitated often, as games like Final Fantasy Explorers and God Eater have tried replicating the success of the franchise. Fans of the series will be happy to know that they won?t have to wait too long to play the game, as a Monster Hunter: Generations demo will be available by the end of the month.
According to the official Nintendo Twitter account, the Monster Hunter: Generations demo will be available on June 30. To celebrate the release of the demo, Capcom released a brand new trailer for the game, showing off the ?deviant monsters? that players will be able to hunt. It is called Monster Hunter after all.
The Capcom Unity Blog has revealed major details about the demo that makes it worth playing. Players will be able to take part in three main quests and use all the new weapon types that will be in the final game. The demo also features new mechanics that veterans will be able to try out, like fighting styles, hunter arts and much more.
To play it, 3DS owners have to check their email that?s linked to their Nintendo account to see if they have received codes to download the demo. Once the codes have been revealed, go to the 3DS eShop and click the redeem option, where players will input the code. The demo should start downloading soon after, so fans better make room on their 3DS before attempting the download.
European fans can access the demo right now. Nintendo Life reported that those with a European account of the game can simply check their Nintendo account and get the demo. It?s a pretty easy way to get the demo, at least compared to the redemption codes process which most of the world will have to do.
Fans who play the demo will be able to transfer their progress into the main game when it comes out next month. This is a great move, as players who download and play the demo will be slightly more powerful when they start the actual game. Players also get a Baby Tygrez armor for their Felynes if they transfer their demo data.
While Monster Hunter: Generations looks like another solid entry in the multiplayer-centric franchise, some fans are wondering about the spinoff title Monster Hunter: Stories. Unlike the regular installments of the franchise, Stories looks more like a traditional RPG, with players actually befriending monsters and having them as party members, which is only slightly similar to Pokemon. Right now it?s not scheduled for a Western release, but the possible success of Generations could change that.
Monster Hunter: Generations will be available on the 3DS on July 15.
