Monster Hunter Generations

Capcom will release a downloadable demo for Monster Hunter Generations for 3DS via the Nintendo eShop on June 30, the company announced at E3. Select fans will begin to receive early access codes via e-mail beginning today. Otherwise, if you don’t want to wait, early access to the demo is available now in the Humble Bundle’s E3 2016 Digital Ticket.

The demo features three monsters of varying difficulty levels, as well as both local and online multiplayer for up to four players. Players can start with the Great Maccao, then attempt to face the new owl-like monster Malfestio, before testing their skills against the fan-favorite Nargacuga.

Capcom also released a new trailer for the game introducing “Deviant” monsters. As Capcom describes them, “these are monsters that have survived previous hunter encounters, mutating and evolving into the greatest threats yet with new fearsome looks, unpredictable behaviors and unexpected abilities. These challengers, such as the Dreadking Rathalos and the Thunderlord Zinogre, yield parts to craft incredibly powerful and unique gear; which become worthy rewards for the most skilled hunters.”

Monster Hunter Generations is due out for 3DS in North America and Europe on July 15.
