Yes, that means the US too.

Capcom said:
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 28, 2018 for digital and physical retail purchase across North America and Europe. For the first time, gamers have the flexibility to play both local wireless and online multiplayer with up to three other hunters – whether playing at home on the big screen or on the go in handheld or tabletop mode. E3 attendees can check out a demo of the game at the Capcom booth (#2223) this June.

Hunters can face off against the series' largest roster of unique monsters in this nostalgic look back at the series’ beginnings and evolutions. Take on the role of a brave hunter on an adrenaline-fueled adventure challenging larger-than-life beasts. Completing quests will yield valuable resources for crafting countless distinct weapons and equipment fashioned after players’ defeated foes. Along their journey, hunters must defend each of the game’s four villages from major threats known as the Fated Four, plus an even more dangerous new Elder Dragon.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate features a blend of classic gameplay and unique new twists, brand new explorable areas and monsters, plus returning fan-favorites like the lightning fast Zinogre and the stealthy long-tailed Nargacuga. This release introduces a new quest level called “G” rank that features even more formidable versions of familiar foes, truly testing experienced hunters’ battle tactics now with different moves and abilities never before seen in the wild!

For newcomers to the series, the gameplay features tons of powerful super moves called Hunter Arts that can be executed with a quick tap on the touch screen. Players can experiment and choose from six different Hunting Styles including two new ones called Brave Style, which rewards players with new moves for landing successive attacks; and Alchemy Style, a support style that grants the ability to create useful items on the fly during combat. Hunters are encouraged to explore and customize the experience between quests to discover their preferred, highly personalized playstyle.
Players of the original Monster Hunter Generations can transfer save data from the previous title to continue their journey in Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

Why not sign up for a (free) account?
Nice! While I would prefer MH5, this will be a nice addition to the Switch library. It might be time for me to finally jump in with both feet on this series.

Of course I'll have to wait for a sale or something, but hey, step in the right direction! :)

I pumped more than 150 hours into this on 3DS, and I'm ready and willing to do it again for Switch. It would be nice if I could pull in my save file, but I probably won't be able to.

You can. I'm not sure how this will work, but it is possible.

Took long enough. I'm ready.... so very ready.

Mop explained the game to me last night on Discord. I'm sold. It's been since MH3U that I've dived into a MH game. (I just couldn't take the plunge on the portable versions).

Sounds like this is different/newer enough for me to have hundreds of hours of fun with, again.

Oh man, you missed out on the best one: Monster Hunter 4 ULTIMATE...! That game seriously blew every other Monster Hunter game out of the water. Shame you missed out, dude! you'll still be playing a portable game when you play Generations ULTIMATE, so not a total loss, I guess!

I actually own Generations on 3DS already, but if there will be a community playing the ULTIMATE version online a lot, I'll gladly jump in with y'all.

It was incredibly fun playing 3U on the Wii U with the NW community. Would definitely like to get back into it with GenU.

This almost sounds like you're making a pun here, since MH4 doesn't have water battles and areas like 3 did.

@Mop it up

Haha, wasn't intentional, but hey. I'll take it!

....I didn't care much for underwater hunting...

I'll be up for whacking some monsters in the face with my hammer, but I have a swing shift, so I can't commit too far in advance

Let's do it!!

Although I never got into Generations as much as MH4U, for some reason. Maybe because it came so soon afterward? I guess that won't be a problem this time!

Anyway, I really hope they spruce it up to 60fps.

Kinda wish they would port Monster Hunter Stories now as well. I bet that art style would look siiiiiiiiick in HD!

@GameDadGrant I'd rather see a sequel at this point. There's still a lot more they could do with it.

@Mop it up


....hm. I wonder if Capcom will make sequels to Stories? I mean, it's Capcom, so it seems sequels are inevitable, but...

I want a Stories with a fun combat system.

If they make an original MH for Switch, I hope that it'll be cel-shaded. I'd rather have a smooth, stylized version than an uglier, choppier World.

Oh, you! You and you're distaste for turn-based combat!

But heck yeah I'd kill 1,000 Great Jaggies for a cel-shaded Monster Hunter on Switch.

At least give me some timed button presses!

Well...there is *something* like that in Monster Hunter Stories...but it's more "button-mashing" than timing something perfectly.
