There’s recent news on the revamped battle system of Monster Hunter Generations and Nintendo has released a new video that previews the four new battle styles that many hunters can equip, employ, and enjoy! 🙂
I am definitely not the best Hunter out there, that’s for sure, LOL. I was only able to finish Monster Hunter 4:Ultimate with sheer determination and perseverance. (And a good set of friends who like to help me out, haha!)
But for Monster Hunter Generations, you finally have a choice on how you want to approach hunting for monsters. The most customizable entry in the series, this game has four (4) Hunter Styles you can choose from: Aerial, Guild, Adept, and Striker. Let’s go over them, one by one. 🙂
This style adds new jumping abilities for Hunters who like to play with heights and want to create a series of attacks from above. Now, mounting deals more damage because it will start taking a special kind of skill and timing to implement this style. So say goodbye to easy-peasy mounting!
Personally, I’d like to see how this turns out. I always like the idea of mounting monsters but since I mostly work with Dual Blades, there’s limited opportunity as compared to, say, the Insect Glaive. :))
If you’re the type who likes to keep it safe and stable (LOL WHUT, when is MonHun ever safe and stable, HAHA), Guild Style might be right up your alley. This style will seem familiar to all Hunters who played Monster Hunter 4: Ultimate as it utilizes all 14 weapons available in-game. 🙂
The truth is, I might start out with this one since MH4:U was the first MonHun game I played and therefore, I’m probably still sucky and now, also rusty, haha! So, I guess if I feel like sticking to tradition and with what I’ve learned from the game so far, this might be my best bet. Huhu, wish me luck!
Learning about monster patterns and behaviors is something expected of a Hunter but the Adept Style puts special emphasis on Hunters who do more than just that. Now, performing counterattacks does special damage and if you equip this style, you’re given more dodging and blocking options depending on what weapon you use.
Er, I’m probably not gonna touch this style anytime soon. HAHA. I super SUCK at dodging and blocking because I like to get up close and personal with monsters and MAKE THEM BLEED!!!! LOL. But this is a great option for the sneaky sneaky peeps who like to dodge, block, then counterattack! Pretty cool, though!
For those who are looking to deal more damage, the Striker Style might be perfect for you. It focus more on unleashing and building up powerful attacks based on Hunter Arts.
In all honesty, I’m not quite sure yet what the Striker Style can do for us Hunters but I wonder if it’ll do well with Dual Blades, LOL. I’m always more about hacking and slashing, haha!
If you want to see the four styles in action, you can watch the video below:
And that’s that! Monster Hunter Generation is coming to NA & Europe the summer of 2016 (news is it’ll launch July 2016, haha!) Can’t wait to go hunting (and dying) again! :))
