So we all know already about the upcoming Monster Hunter 4. It was announced for the Nintendo 3DS, and so far only the Nintendo 3DS. This game also starts the fourth generation of Monster Hunter games and the first to be on a handheld console (Monster Hunter 1 and Monster Hunter 2 was on the Playstation 2, whilst MH3 was on the Wii).
MH4: Video Concept
Video Release Date: September 12, 2011.
Video Release Date: June 30, 2012.
The new Gameplay Elements
- Characters Tigrex, Rathalos, and a Hunter with a Great Sword (The Ravager Blade Series to be exact) in a Hunter's Armor set.
- Areas for the game are wider and larger compared with previous generation maps.
- Objects are now even more destructive and hunters are able to traverse areas in a platform gaming-esque style.
- In addition, while climbing walls, Hunters can now climb walls sideways, as opposed to only climbing vertically in previous games.
- Tigrex can now climb on walls; something that it can't do in the previous games.
- The hunter can actually jump and ride the back of the Rathalos and attack it with a knife.
Whilst I'm one of the few that disliked what I watched, it is still too early to judge the game. When there are new information for the game, I shall update both its main article here, and this blog post. Feel free to share us your opinions, be it positive or negative remarks.
The video was confirmed to be "Actual" gameplay of the game
According to CHUMP of Capcom-Unity and Andriassang's report, in an Iwata Asks column, an interview with the MH producers Kaname Fujioka and Ryozo Tsujimoto stated that the video was actual gameplay footage of the game itself. Comments and opinions? Post below.
