As seen in Famitsu's gameplay video, four monsters are in the beginning of the game (Yian Kut-Ku, and silhouettes of Congalala, Daimyo Hermitaur, and Khezu).

The second is a Vertical Slash Attack, which can be used to repel a monsters attack with a powerful blow.

Next to the original hunts are now harder versions - the monsters are faster and stronger, their health bars are gone, and you have less in-quest items (1 potion and one of another item). When cleared, a tick will appear on the quest icon.
- However the tick mark itself won't count towards your ranking in the iPhones "Game Center" but the grade you get (D, C, B, ect.) will.
