The free Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate demo hits the Nintendo Switch eShop today.
Nintendo Switch owners might not be able to play Monster Hunter World, but the upcoming release of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate should provide some small solace, and a hell of a lot of monsters to kill.
The enhanced version of the 2015 Nintendo 3DS game will obviously not provide the visual splendour of Capcom’s recent open-world opus, but it will provide 93 monsters to fight. That’s about 50 more than World, and 26 more than were included in the game’s original handheld incarnation.
If you want to give Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate a try, head over to the Nintendo eShop, and pick up the free demo, which is available from today.
The demo features three self-contained quests, each with a preset selection of weapons and armour. Due to its structure, it will not provide a save to transfer to the full release.
Owners of the 3DS original will also need to be patient, and wait until the full game is released in order to move their progress over to the Nintendo Switch edition.
And while you’re here, check out our complete guide to all of the currently available Nintendo Switch game demos.
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will be released for the Nintendo Switch on August 28, 2018.
