Let's start with the villages! Monster Hunter Generations brings back three classic villages, one of which most of us have never seen before, and one new village! The three classics are Kokoto Village, Pokke Village, and Yukumo Village while the newest village is Bherna! Kokoto Village is the very first village ever in the Monster Hunter series, coming all the from original Monster Hunter! Pokke Village is where many hunters first started with Monster Hunter Freedom 2 or Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, when the series was truly starting to become well-known! Yukumo Village was only ever seen in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, though mentioned briefly in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, but has finally become a place for all of us to visit! Now in Monster Hunter Generations, old and new hunters have Bherna to visit to make some new memories!

You got to love the locations in the MH World! Each location has something worth exploring, rather old or new. Though a majority of the areas appeared in older games, a lot of them are new to newcomers of the series and brings back fond memories to veterans. This means both older and newer players get a chance to hunt in some old places! Though there is a lot of old, there is some new! Older players get to enjoy hunting in the Jurassic Frontier!

Like previous games before it, Monster Hunter Generations has some returning monsters along with a few new ones! This game brings back all the Flagship Monsters, excluding Azure Rathalos, along with many old monsters that haven't appeared in a game for a few years! But the biggest thing about Monster Hunter Generations is its new Flagship Monsters! That's right, this game has up to four Flagship Monsters! These four Flagships are Astalos, Gammoth, Mizutsune, and Glavenus, who is called the Main Main Monster in Japan!

Hunting Styles

Hunting Styles are the way a hunter's weapon is used in battle. Through cooperation and work, done day by day, the Hunting Styles were created. The Hunter's Guild continues to collect information about the styles, which hunters share with them. With four different styles (Guild, Striker, Aerial, and Adept), hunters have more choices in the way they hunt. So how do you hunt?

Guild Style

MHGen-Great Sword Equipment Render 002

Usable Hunter Arts: 2
Guild Style (ギルドスタイル) is the definitive style for members of the Hunter's Guild. Allows for two Hunter Arts and has a versatile mix of attacks. Great for adapting to any situation.

Striker Style

MHGen-Hammer Equipment Render 002

Usable Hunter Arts: 3
Striker Style (ストライカースタイル) is a relatively simple-to-use Style that lets you equip up to three Hunter Arts. It's also easier to charge up the Arts Gauge, so this style is perfect for going heavy on the Arts.

Aerial Style

MHGen-Light Bowgun Equipment Render 002

Usable Hunter Arts: 1
Aerial Style (エリアルスタイル) is unique for allowing you to use an Aerial Dodge to jump on monsters and propel yourself high into the air. You can also launch yourself off of players and barrels. Great for mounting monsters.

Adept Style

MHGen-Dual Blades Equipment Render 002

Usable Hunter Arts: 1
Adept Style (ブシドースタイル) is all about waiting until the last second to evade or guard your foe's attacks, letting you perform Insta-Moves. It's difficult to pull off, but allows for devastating counterattacks.
