Well, if you were always wondering what the heck is it with the Monster Hunter franchise that has been so big in Japan, especially on the Sony platforms of gaming hardware, perhaps those of you rocking to a Nintendo 3DS might want to make sure that you gear up for the release of Monster Hunter Generations on Nintendo’s portable console later this summer.

Basically, in a nutshell, Monster Hunter Generations is actually Monster Hunter X over in the Land of the Rising Sun. There you go, and this monster of a title (pardon the pun) is set to arrive on the Nintendo 3DS when summer rolls around across the western world. Monster Hunter is an action role-playing series that can be said to be a more mature version of Pokemon – you still go around hunting for monsters, battling and capturing these majestic beasts, so Monster Hunter Generations will continue down that path.
Those who have been long time fans of the series will be able to transfer their saved data from Monster Hunter 4 to Generations as part of an incentive to unlock bonus content. Not only that, Nintendo wants to let as many as possible jump aboard this summer by making Monster Hunter 4 on sale for $20 a pop the Nintendo eShop for 48 hours only, kicking off at 3PM PT today.
