The colours will be exclusive based on location with North America getting a blue version and Europe getting a red one and the European version will have the game pre-installed. A demo will also be coming for those who prefer to try games before hand, with no specific release date given, although it will be before the game releases.

For those new to the franchise, Monster Hunter is an action RPG in which you create a player and hunt a range of dangerous creatures to kill or capture. Unlike other RPG’s, the player does not level up, instead improving themselves by obtaining better equipment. Monster hunter also boasts a large range of weapons that change the game style from slow great swords, to quick but weaker dual swords and ranged weapons. Characters are also able to freely switch between weapons instead of being restricted to a certain class as in many other games of similar genres.

The new instalment will include all 14 weapon types from the prior game in the series and will include some monsters seen before. In addition to this, 4 new signature monsters will be added as well as a new mode called ‘prowler’, which allow players to take control of a felyne, a cat-like species that were previously only available as companions.
