Two Monster Hunters on the 3DS
Gaming sites are fun to read again as news from TGS11 is making it’s way to the internet. Naturally it looks like we’ve got news on one of the biggest (if not the biggest) video game franchises in Japan, Monster Hunter. Nintendo has announced both Monster Hunter Tri 3G(data plan not included) and Monster Hunter 4. The former is a port of the fortunately successful title that was released on the Wii last year with some neat new features including all twelve weapon types and new monsters. It appears to be the flagship game for the 3DS’s new “nub” add-on, which is interesting since its Wii counterpart was used to push the improved Wii Classic Controller. The latter is a brand new game. The word currently is that it’s in preproduction, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t get an awesome trailer! The trailer(embedded below) was said to be a “concept video” meaning we can’t assume that- did he just jump onto that dragon!? If even 10% of that video reflects what Monster Hunter 4 will be like, I want that game yesterday!
