The game has already been out in Japan for a while under the name Monster Hunter: Double Cross.

"The highly anticipated Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, the follow up to Monster Hunter Generations, marks the series debut on Nintendo Switch as an exclusive when it launches on August 28th, 2018 for digital and physical retail purchase across Europe and North America".

After its status was up in the air for so long, official word has finally come through regarding Monster Hunter on Nintendo Switch.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is a completely different game from the recently released Monster Hunter World.

Local reports suggest roughly 100 homes have been affected, including properties on the Nyakinyua Farm that borders the reservoir. The floods have also destroyed road networks in some parts of the country since the rains started pounding in March.

Additionally, if you've played the original Monster Hunter Generations you'll be able to transfer over your save data.

Monster Hunter fans and Switch owners got some good news today, though perhaps not the news they were hoping for. If you've only ever played MHW, be aware that Generations Ultimate isn't exactly what you're used to on PS4 and Xbox One. Take on the role of a courageous hunter on an adrenaline-fueled adventure challenging larger-than-life beasts. Nevertheless, no one is going to turn down playing Monster Hunter on the go.

That will see you defend each of the game's four villages from major threats known as the Fated Four, as well as the mysterious new Elder Dragon Valstrax.

Meanwhile, newcomers can take advantage of the new Hunter Arts, which are super-powerful techniques that can be activated by hitting the touch screen. These reward players with "new moves for landing successive attacks", and the ability to "create useful items on the fly during combat", respectively. The gameplay experience will be more or less the same on the Switch. For those of you that will be newly jumping in, Deviant monsters are even more powerful variants of enemies you will soon become familiar with, monsters that have survived previous hunter encounters and have taken on new traits and abilities.
