Monster Hunter Generations publisher Capcom will release a demo for the action game June 30 on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, but there are a couple of ways to get it early, the company announced today.

The demo will offer three beasts of varying difficulty levels to take down: Great Maccao, Malfestio and Nargacuga. One to four people can play the demo, and Capcom is encouraging folks to team up with their friends.

If you can't wait, Capcom is emailing early access codes to "select fans" starting today. Interested parties can also buy the E3 2016 Digital Ticket at Humble Bundle — those who pay at least $4 will receive access to the demo.

Monster Hunter Generations launches July 15 in North America and Europe on 3DS. For more details, check out the game's E3 trailer, which introduces Deviant monsters. These creatures have survived previous hunter attacks, and have mutated and evolved into tougher beasts.
