Capcom has revealed a new "Monster Hunter Generations" trailer, which highlights some of the new titles gameplay mechanics known as Hunting Styles that add a new layer of customization beyond a players choice of weapon.

Capcom said that both Style and Hunter arts "allow for an even more visually striking and personalized playstyle than ever before."

Each of the four Hunting Styles is shown briefly in the new trailer above. In a Capcom blog post, Guild Style is said to play similarly to "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate," but the others each offer a new twist.

Here’s a rundown of Styles from Capcom via Nintendo Everything:

Each hunting Style opens up different ways to tactically take on foes. Each Style also allows access to different Hunter Arts, indispensable combat skills and power-ups that can be unleashed with the tap of a button when charged, making it easy to execute these special moves.

  • Aerial Style – Adds a new jumping ability which allows players to attack from above, opening up more opportunities to mount a monster and potentially knock it down.
  • Guild Style – Classic gameplay for all 14 weapons and will feel familiar to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate players.
  • Adept Style – Rewards players for learning enemy behaviors and performing a counterattack, giving players more tactical dodging and blocking options based on the current weapon type in use.
  • Striker Style – A versatile powerhouse that revolves around building up and unleashing incredibly advantageous Hunter Arts.

Check out the Styles trailer below:

Meanwhile, if you're one of the lucky people headed to PAX East, you'll be able to play the first public demo of "Monster Hunter Generations."

"Monster Hunter Generations" is the name of what's known as "Monster Hunter X" in Japan and is due out in the west this summer for 3DS. The game will offer some kind of bonus for players who already have "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" save data on their system.
