Link will be a Playable Character in Monster Hunter Generations

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate releases this month for the Nintendo Switch and it has been announced that the game will be having a big crossover with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The crossover will allow you to dress you’re in-game character in Link’s iconic armour such as his blue tunic from Breath of the Wild, and you’ll even be able to wield links weaponry too. However, that is not all; because you’ll also be able to disguise your feline Palicos companion as not only Link from The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker, but also the leafy musician known as Korok. I imagine, rather than being outright DLC, much like the Horizon Zero Dawn content in Monster Hunter World, The Legend of Zelda content will be acquired by participating via in-game events.

Rather than being a brand new title or a port of Monster Hunter World, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is an updated port of the Nintendo 3DS title, but don’t let that put you off, as the game is highly regarded in the Monster Hunter franchise. You’ll also be able to transfer your game data to and from the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch versions of the game.
Originally planned to never release outside of Japan on the Nintendo Switch, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will now release over here in the west on August 28th.
