Monster Hunter Generations arrived recently in the West, so we trust that plenty of you are currently going on some exciting hunts both offline and online. Something you may have overlooked is that, as per tradition, there's a launch set of DLC to get you started, and Capcom Unity has broken down the full details.

Arguably the most important inclusion for anyone starting out in the game is a Starter Item Pack, which has a lot of hugely useful stuff to use:

  • 99x Honey
  • 50x Mega Potion
  • 20x Mega Dash Juice
  • 50x Well-done Steak
  • 20x Lifepowder
  • 30x Hot Drink
  • 30x Cool Drink
  • 10x Shock Trap
  • 10x Pitfall Trap
  • 30x Tranq Bomb

Moving on, this 'sampler' set of DLC also includes some outfits, equipment and Palicoes, some of which are simply handed to you and others that you earn through quest.

First of all, Palicoes - you get these added to your roster.

  • Happy
  • Nyanbo
  • Univer
  • Mario

Then there are smaller extras to make your save and profile a bit snazzier.

  • 20x Guild Card Titles
  • 1x Guild Card Pose
  • 5x Guild Card Background
  • 1x Pet Outfit

Four arena events don't yield DLC-exclusive rewards, but may be worth a whirl.

  • Event: Slay a Gore Magala
  • Event: Slay a Zinogre
  • (Prowler) Event: Slay a Royal Ludroth
  • (Prowler) Event: Slay a Volvidon

Now for the good stuff. Though collaboration outfits for the likes of Star Fox and Strider will come in the following months, there are still outfits to be earned in this first month via special quests.
