The Monster Hunter series has always been extremely popular in Japan, but the franchise by Capcom needed more time to make it big in the West.
Monster Hunter World is among the most popular entries in the series in North America and Europe, but it seems like that the game will not be released on Nintendo Switch, despite Nintendo consoles having received some of the previous entries in the series exclusively.
Capcom did release Monster Hunter Generations on the console, so it’s not like the publisher forgot about Nintendo users.
If you are done with Monster Hunter Generations but haven’t had your fill of monster hunting, you’d do well in taking a look at Dauntless, a new free to play action-RPG heavily inspired by the Capcom series.
Dauntless takes place in a fantasy setting. Following a cataclysm that destroyed much of the world, powerful creatures known as Behemoths roam the land and attack th surviving humans. Slayers are the only ones who can protect humanity, taking down these Behemoths with their unique abilities and combat prowess.
Players control one of these Slayers are they travel through a variety of locations. Combat in the game is combo-based, so it does feel slightly different from the Monster Hunter games. Co-op also makes everything even more fun, and thanks to cross-platform play, Nintendo Switch users will be able to play with friends playing on other platforms.
In case you have never seen the game in action, you can find brand new footage of the Switch release right below.
Dauntless is now available as a free to play game on Nintendo Switch.
