The next Monster Hunter game will be released on July 15, and will come with a limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL. Game Developer Capcom said the game's Nintendo 3DS XL version sports a visually appealing artwork and exciting features.

Here's the latest round up update about when is the release of Monster Hunter Generations 3DS in U.S.

The New Nintendo 3DS XL Monster Hunter Generations Edition is adorned with a redesigned Guild symbol, and the game's new monsters, the Fated Four, are printed faintly in the background. Gamers from North America will have a blue edition, while gamers from Europe will see a red one.

It is also worth mentioning that the game itself will not be included in Monster Hunter-themed 3DS XL in North America. For buyers who reside in Europe, they will receive a pre-installed game on the system.

iDigital Times reported the limited edition 3DS XL gives buyers a chance to play the game immediately with enhanced graphics, improved camera control options with the C-stick functionality, and mappable ZL and ZR buttons for Hunter Arts.

Interestingly, the July 15 launching of Monster Hunter Generations goes against an Amazon listing which states the game will be available on July 31. Nonetheless, the earlier launching is good news for fans. The title was initially released in Japan last year.

A report from Gamespot says fans can also participate in a playable demo that will be released on the Nintendo eShop before the actual game comes out. However, the game developer has not yet revealed its actual date, other than "this summer."

The new Monster Hunter Generations features brand new creatures in 20 different hunting areas. Also, it introduces new hunting styles that will definitely add more RPG feel to game. Players can also use costume from other video game characters like Marth.

The last year's launching of Monster Hunter Generations in Japan brought huge success to Capcom. Forbes reported the game developer's income last year was $97 million. After the launching of the game, the company sales rose to around $111 million. In addition, the overall profits of Capcom increased by $709 million this year from $591 million in 2015.

Market analysts say the company's success was due to the huge sales of Monster Hunter Generations. Estimates show the title has already sold more than 3 million copies in Japan.
