Monster Hunter 4G Announced For 3DS


Rusty hunters may want to sharpen their skills, as an announcement declaring the release of “Monster Hunter 4G” for the Nintendo 3DS has just been unveiled, being slated for purchase in Japan come fall – and the game will also be compatible with save data from the original Monster Hunter 4 – making for the most important gaming announcement of 2014 as far as most Japanese are concerned, the PS4 barely making a ripple these days.

The debut trailer:

An hour long Monster Hunter 10th anniversary opening movie and amassment of trailers:

Alongside this announcement, there was also another important revelation concerning Monster Hunter’s western release by way of “Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate” (the North American and European equivalent to Monster Hunter 4G) being announced for release in early 2015.

    I still haven't played anything after Unite because I don't wanna use that Nintendo Eyeball Destroyer, that and I can't afford it, shit, I'd only even have it for Pokemon, MH, and Custom Robo (if that's even on there).

    Eyeball destroyer? It all depends on how good your eyes are. Most people can play with the 3D on without issue, some find it difficult. That being said you can play with the 3D off just fine, its like a portable Wii graphically without the 3d.

    I didn't realize how horrible the Wii graphics are until now.

    You can completely disable the 3D effect. Also, disabling it in-game will actually make the game run smoother in 3U.

    Vita being beaten to a pulp.

    Sony dropped the ball hard by letting Nintendo money-hat this Japanese cash cow.

    Well it's about time Nintendo money hatted something.
    They (Nintendo) dropped the ball when they let Sony money hat everything in the late 90's. Does anyone really think that the N64 couldn't have handle Mega Man 7 just remove those horrid unnecessary FMV scenes.

    honestly hope this game is better than the last one. I couldn't stand the combat in that. They really need to give the player the ability to have different combat styles.
    Example: instead of horizontal, or vertical slashes large heavy sword have, give them more most like, upper cuts, Cleaves and bashing with the blade for small to Medium creatures to give yourself more room to swing.

    since the games are all about exploring, quests, scavenging and combat. and combat being what is used the most. I think they should give most detail to it.

    I dropped 3 on the 3ds because the combat only allowed you to use the weapons in simplistic ways.

    Why not on the Vita? You know a system that can handle more then 3 things moving at once.
    Look at the 3DS. It lads and studers on Pokemon. Freaking pome on battle effects lag the POS hardware.
    I can't imagine how bad this will chop up when a person needs to dodge a monster charge of some other attack.
    Oh well. I expect a severally reduced number of monsters on screen or in a field at a time. That or that may make the individual rendered fields soo small you will feel claustrophobic against a zone lock in the center of an open field.
    Looks like another case of "try and hunt monsters" on a Nintendo abortion of a system.

    The day Sony delivers a handheld with current console graphics and capabilities that doesn't cost more than the console it's copying, I will gladly join your side. As it is, it seems you're just bitter you got a $300 brick.

    This isn't how electronics work, sorry. Shrinking things down is going to cost you somehow, either in performance or in dollars.

    "Why not on the Vita? You know a system that can handle more then 3 things moving at once."

    Because Vita is already DEAD. Vita is this generation's Sega Dreamcast. 3DS is outselling it 20 to 3. Nearly 43million units vs 7million units, 126million software sales vs 20million software sales, 15million Japanese unit sales vs 2.5million Japanese unit sales.

    3DS has literally curb stomped Vita because Nintendo does handheld better than anyone. And most of the titles Japanese developers are making for Vita are crappy ports, like Marvel vs Capcom.

    "Why not on the Vita?"

    Because Capcom hates Sony's guts for something they did concerning Monhan. As expected, Capcom pulled out and Nintendo came up and offered money. Simple as that.

    Lots of money for little to no upgrade overal = MH will always be on the pathetic 3ds hardware....simple like that.

    Why would Capcom try and develop a upgraded version for better hardware (Vita, PS4) if they can get all those sales for so cheap a development cycle?

    And to the idiot saying that the Vita is a brick: Look for its games retard, they FAR better than the shovelware 3DS is receiveing....but then again, why should we care for better games (overall) if sales is what matter most anyway...

    Nintendo: selling old garbage for new prcies since...well...thats kinda hard to tell...Im going with teh Wii for now...they were amazing before the Wii, nowadays its just POS hardware all around with subpar software because of it..

    What a cute little retard. Does writing long words make you smart?

    Anyway, the Gaming industry is a BUSINESS. It's pretty logical that a developer would take the console/handheld with the most sales because math.

    3DS sales are gonna double, at the minimum, from last year. Sony really dropped the ball when they let Monster Hunter slip through its fingers.

    After this, people are going to be asking "What's a Vita?"
