So, what do you do when you’ve already successfully made a new and impressive entry of the vaunted Monster Hunter series that absolutely does wondrously well on the humble Switch?!? Why, you make it bigger, badder, more varied, and even more compelling to play whether you’re taking it on solo or with a group of friends. Make no mistake, for the most part this is an expansion primarily designed for the people who have already made a significant investment of the game, at least if you want to see and get access to everything it offers, but given the added challenge new monsters and variants bring to the table this seems like a very appropriate way to handle the added content. To go with the new challenges some new equipment possibilities (though things like the Talismans will require you complete the story before you’ll get to use them), as well as refinements to expand your options for how you engage in combat, something that’s always appreciated given the need to deal some more formidable foes being added onto the already tough roster of monsters from the original. This is just one of those great examples of DLC that show a great respect and appreciation for a loyal fanbase who has been chomping at the bit for more endgame content to provide new excuses to keep throwing more time into a fantastic title. If you’re a Monster Hunter fan it really is a no-brainer.
