Capcom officially revealed some new details and gameplay mechanics for the latest installment of the Monster Hunter franchise with Monster Hunter Generations, which is due out this summer. The game will feature new gameplay mechanics called Styles and Hunter Arts to allow for a more personalized playstyle. You can check out a new reveal trailer for the mechanics below.
Each hunting Style in the game offers new ways to take down enemies. The Styles also feature access to unique Hunter Arts, which have combat skills and power-ups that can be used with the tap of a button after they are charged. Here are the four Style options for the game:
- Aerial Style – Adds a new jumping ability which allows players to attack from above, opening up more opportunities to mount a monster and potentially knock it down.
- Guild Style – Classic gameplay for all 14 weapons and will feel familiar to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate players.
- Adept Style – Rewards players for learning enemy behaviors and performing a counterattack, giving players more tactical dodging and blocking options based on the current weapon type in use.
- Striker Style – A versatile powerhouse that revolves around building up and unleashing incredibly advantageous Hunter Arts.
Monster Hunter Generations is due out later this summer for the Nintendo 3DS. Capcom will have the game on display for attendees to play at PAX East later this month.
