Underwater fights came as a huge surprise and added a lot of ways to deal with returning and new monsters that were water based. Instead of waiting for them to jump out of the water to combat, hunters could chase them down in their own terrain. It wasn’t quite the perfect introduction, however, and despite underwater combat appearing in a total of two games, it had a mixed reaction. Capcom knew this and has not included in underwater in subsequent titles, but now is the perfect time to return to it in the latest generation.
