Monster Hunter X Announced For 3DS

Capcom has announced the latest installment of it's popular Monster Hunter franchise.

At this weekend's Monster Hunter [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/tag/view/monster%20hunter?os=monster+hunter] Gathering 2015 event in Tokyo, Capcom unveiled the latest installment in it's monster hunting franchise. Monster Hunter X, the new title, will be a Nintendo 3DS exclusive and will launch for the system in Japan this winter.

Alongside the reveal, a first-look trailer was debuted, which you can check out to the right. Rather than being a fully-fledged sequel, Monster Hunter X will use Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's engine and have a "flashy action style" similar to the Frontier [http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Monster_Hunter_Frontier] series.

The video also showcases some of the new monsters you can expect to hunt, and shows us where the game will take place. From the looks of things, players will fight their way across several towns and villages from past Monster Hunter games.

Nintendo is planning to hold a Monster Hunter specific Nintendo Direct soon, so we will have some more info on the title at that point.

This is what ive been able to glean from the trailer.

The obvious:
New super attacks for all weapons.
5 new monsters.
Return to Kokoto, Pokke and Yumoko villages.

The stuff you may have missed:
Tonfas.
Forest and Hills, Snowy Mountains and Misty Peaks are back.

If i had to say, this is another expansion to MH4U, bringing back even more content that didnt make it from the earlier games while still bringing in new things.

Gotta wonder if theyre also bringing back underwater hunts... guess we will find out in time.

This is announced just after I've bought MH4U. Well, I guess I have time to become a MH vet.

So, holiday 2015 for Japan?

Which would put their updated version, Monster Hunter XG (for G-rank), around holiday 2016.

Then the localized version of that, renamed Monster Hunter X Ultimate, sometime around spring 2017.



Well, okay then, back to kicking some Apex Seregios tail in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Still, that T-Rex looking thing with the tail attacks looked like an absolute beast, and I'd bet that it's the flagship monster for the title.

So, MHFrontier over the top attacks are coming to the 3DS.


At some point I was talking how I was happy that the game wasn't so much exaggerated and if you liked flashy combat you could just go and play frontier instead. Everyone is happy.


But for as much that I like monster hunter and for as much fun I had in frontier, I can't really say I enjoy the flashy combat that much.


And yet I'm still going to buy MHX...

Why haven't they released THIS GAME FOR THE nn3ds again? Isn't this the exact type of game that could use the extra power and buttons. Just a thought, i don't particularly enjoy the series anyways.

Edit: The bit in caps.

Coolio. I need to play more Monster Hunter 4.

...

Hell, I need to play more Monster Hunter 3 and Freedom Unite.

But more Monster Hunter is something I'm perfectly okay with.

I wonder if it will use the New3DS or not?

Actually there are 4 Flagship monsters, they're all in the trailer.

Well i doubt Capcom is going to hit its multimillion sales mark in Japan by forcing everyone to upgrade to N3DS.

That said, if it was required, id probaby get one anyway.

Wow, has there been 10 games already? I suppose it is when you count the released and the Ultimate versions.

I should realyl learn from my mistake and give up on the franchise (I lose interest playing it when I read higher rank and I am nowhere near effective when it come to remembering the monster tatics) or at least buy the game when it's on sales.

Also I'm glad to see Agnaktor in it, I missed in it 4 Ultimate for its armor.

Lastly I highly doubt they can top Gore Magala. That beast was truely menancing and frightful to fight against (and the only real "villain" in the series)!

Jesus Hairy Christ, this series is all over the place as far as platforms go. I expect MH5 to be launched in the SNES and Sanyo microwaves, at this pace.

I have a Wii U, don't I get to play ANY new MH?

I'm wondering why they didn't elaborate on Monster Hunter Stories though; while X is looking to be a deviation of the formula (greatly expanding fighting options), Stories is something drastically different. Still, looks like CAPCOM and Nintendo are gonna print money this year.

Jesus, I've barely touched MH4U as of yet. I guess for once I'm thankful that Capcom takes forever to release these outside of Japan.

Eh. Sorry. All of my "new mh game" hype is still reserved for Monster Hunter Stories.

This looks super cool too tho

Wich japanese gaming developer doesnt?

With nintendo paying capcom off to keep their one remaining flagship title on nintendo consoles and no where else even japanese gamers are treated like suckers
