The hunt is on! Nintendo has today unveiled the first trailer for the newest installment of the Monster Hunter series – Monster Hunter Generations. In just a couple of months, fans of the series will be able to immerse themselves in a whole new adventure.

Monster Hunter Generations features a brand new game mode, entitled ‘Prowler’, as well as a number of revisions to help beginners, and is noted as being the most accessible entry in the series thus far, and would be a fantastic jumping-on point for newcomers.

The new Prowler mode will allow players to directly control one of the Felyne characters, and allows any newcomers to immediately get involved with hunting and gathering without the worry of becoming overwhelmed. Players of all skill levels will be able to enjoy any of the game’s single / multiplayer quests in this mode, whether that be as a Hunter, or a Prowler.

Monster Hunter Generations will enable players to go head to head against a large range of monsters in well over 20 different hunting locations, either as a solo hunter, or with other players on online, and local multiplayer modes.

Of course, this was not the only reveal of the day, as Nintendo have also presented two limited edition 3DS consoles. Both versions of the console features artwork of the game’s elite group of powerful monsters – The Fated Four. Players able to purchase one of these special 3DS consoles will find that they come with Monster Hunter Generations pre-installed on a 4GB microSD card so they can immediately get on with playing the game as soon as possible.
