Following the recent Nintendo Direct announcement that Monster Hunter Generations is coming to the 3DS this Summer, this writer missed the boat. Two hours could have been spent (on 4th March) watching the localised version of the game in action in a live stream, including a segment of the neat new mode where you can tackle hunts in a pack of Palicos.

Thankfully, Capcom Europe did upload it to YouTube and shared some recent reminders on Twitter. It shows off a lot of the early game, with character creation and some initial quests / combat styles shown off. For those that have followed Monster Hunter X (Cross) closely it will all, naturally, look rather familiar - nevertheless it's satisfying to see the localised version looking rather snappy.

Check it out below.
