The second generation of Monster Hunter is comprised of the second set of three games released between February 16th, 2006 and August 1st, 2009. The second generation expanded upon the gameplay principles and content established in the first generation.

Gameplay Features

The second generation of Monster Hunter introduced several new features. Firstly, a day and night cycle, as well as a season cycle, both of which dictated monster and item appearances. Armor slots and decorations were introduced as well, allowing players to further customize the skill sets of their equipment. The second generation also notably introduced the Felyne Comrade system, which allows players to bring along an AI-controlled Felyne warrior into battle with them to aid in hunting and gathering. This would become a mainstay feature for the series, implemented in every generation to follow. Epic Hunting Quests first appeared in the second generation, as did Treasure-Hunting Quests. The second generation added a new element in the form of ice.

Monsters

The second generation introduced thirty-six monsters, including two monster types: Carapaceon and Fanged Beast.
