The Monster Hunter series can trace its origins back to the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable platforms, but over the past five years the franchise found a new home with Nintendo. After the stellar release of Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii and its HD update for the Wii U, Capcom is taking the experience to the 3DS with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Considering the nature of these games, there may be some reservations over the decision to make a mainline entry exclusively for a portable system, but after spending dozens of hours slaying all manner of beasts and behemoths, it’s clear any concerns are unfounded.
Nintendo will be shutting down the eShop for the 3DS and Wii U completely in 2023. Makes sure to check out these games before they do.
What's the best Monster Hunter of all time? In a series where half of the titles have the word 'Ultimate' fixed on the end, it can be a difficult decision to make. NL are not averse to difficult decisions though, so have taken it upon theirselves to rank every single Monster Hunter game (yes, even the non-Nintendo ones) to determine which is the very best.
Monster Hunter World is close to releasing, which means it’s no better time to reminisce and look back at some of the best Monster Hunter games that came before it.
