Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

Yesterday, Nintendo confirmed that Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will be playable at the Japan Expo (July 5th to July 8th, in Paris). The fun thing is, this is actually the second time the game is playable there: it already was last year, though in an “unofficial” fashion (it was an initiative from Nintendo; the western release was not confirmed back then, and the demo was not even translated).

Also, Shintaro Kojima (Producer) will be at Nintendo’s booth on July 5th from 1.30PM to 3.30PM, in order to play with fans. There will also be a signing session from 4PM to 5PM!

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate (Switch) comes out on August 28th in Europe and North America.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition

The latest issue of Hobby Consolas reveals that Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition sold 4 700 units in Spain, as of Week 23 (June 10th). That’s a great debut, but unfortunately, the magazine does not provide data for the previous versions so there’s no comparison to be made…
