Monster Hunter

It's a pretty loaded week for Nintendo Switch owners over on the eShop, as a number of new games are gracing the system this week, no matter what you're into.

Right off the bat, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate stands out as the big highlight, allowing players of all skills to step up and attempt to slay many beasts. But there are a few other gems as well, including the horror classic Night Trap (which, by the way, was never going to be on a Nintendo platform at one point) and Neo-Geo classics like Crossed Swords and Real Bout Fatal Fury 2.

Let's run down the list and see what's available this week!

  • Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate- The monster slaying classic comes to the Switch starting on August 28. If you want, you can check out a free demo now, complete with three different hunts and online multiplayer!
