The latest Nintendo Direct streamed today at 7:00 A.M. EST /10:00 A.M. PST on their Japanese YouTube channel. For the uninitiated, a Nintendo Direct is a cleverly disguised press conference in the form of a video about what fans should expect from Nintendo in the future.
The last Nintendo Direct discussed the highly anticipated Pokemon Sun and Moon and the previously unannounced Pikmin and Yoshi’s Wooly World 3ds adaptations. This new Nintendo Direct will be exclusively about Monster Hunter. (Sorry Nintendo Switch fans.)
Now, we know what a Nintendo Direct is but do we know what Monster Hunter is? (If you don’t know then, by all means, please watch this direct!)
Monster Hunter is an action-adventure, strategy, online, and offline RPG collectathon where you hunt beasts of all kinds with weapons of all kinds and then wear their pretty textures as armor. A giant sea dragon that shoots lightning? You can wear that. A fluffy alpaca or a volcanic alligator? You can wear that too, as long as you successfully hunt it. And how do you hunt? Currently, Monster Hunter Generations offers a total of 14 different weapons from gun lances to long swords.
The bottom line is this. Monster Hunter is challenging fun that caters to how players choose to play. For those of us who can’t wait for Pokemon Sun and Moon or Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild, be sure to check out the latest Nintendo Direct.
