In an announcement made via Twitter, Nintendo has confirmed the release date of the upcoming Monster Hunter Generations. The title will launch on July 15 in both Europe and America, accompanied by a limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL system. Two different versions of the hardware will be available, with the blue unit available exclusively in America, and the red in Europe. A copy of Monster Hunter Generations will be pre-installed on the European hardware, but the American system will be sold separately.

This news was accompanied by a new trailer, which highlighted a range of new gameplay features. Monster Hunter Generations is billed as a celebration of the franchise, and presents a slew of unique additions. A series of collaboration events will follow shortly after launch, including Fire Emblem and Okami. Save data from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate can be used to grant additional items, though the specifics of this system have yet to be detailed.
