Today Capcom announced Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (Monster Hunter 4G in Japan) for 3DS and that the new game will be coming to the West in 2015. Nintendo 3DS owners can expect new monsters, more multiplayer options, and even a larger range of movement in the new Monster Hunter game.  In Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate players will find a new hunting experience with the expansion vertical and lateral movements.  “This opens up new possibilities by expanding the range of actions to create more fluid and dynamic hunting experiences.”, explains Monster Hunter Producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto, in the announcement video (above) from the Capcom Unity blog.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Hey there fellow hunters! Want some really good news? Well, how about we start with… Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is coming to the west in early 2015 on Nintendo 3DS!

You probably deduced this, but to put it clearly Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be the Western version of Japan’s Monster Hunter 4G. That means it will be built on the foundations of Monster Hunter 4 but have way more content. That’s a ton of stuff!

In typical Monster Hunter fashion, you can expect to see a number of returning older monsters, but also a great selection of new threats to challenge you in unique ways. And just wait until we have more info for you on the new mechanics, weapons and things you can do in this game! As Tsujimoto-san said in the video, they aimed to make the hunts a lot more fluid and dynamic… and they definitely nailed it!

We’ll have more to talk about later on throughout the year. But in the meantime, I’ll leave you with a quick reminder to keep an eye on this blog/forum, our TwitterFacebook and YouTube pages, as well as our weekly live streams on Twitch. And don’t forget you can get awesome Monster Hunter merchandise at the Capcom Store.

Happy Hunting!
