As for the game, it’s pretty much a known quantity at this stage. By most accounts it’s another solid entry into the franchise and is by far the most accessible game in the series, serving as a good jumping on point for new Monster Hunter players.

One feature that helps noobs is the new Prowler mode, where players can directly control one of the game’s Felyne characters and get straight down to hunting and gathering without feeling overwhelmed with all that RPG nonsense. The new trailer also released today shows off a little more of the new mode.

Monster Hunter Generations and the New Nintendo 3DS XL Monster Hunter Generations Edition launches in Europe on 15th July.
