With a little over two weeks until its Japanese release, Capcom have seen fit to release the Monster Hunter 4 opening movie as it will appear on the 3DS! Check it out:

What did you all think of the Monster Hunter 4 opening? Personally, I got chills when the theme music kicked in at the end. It’s gotten me really excited to take on the Goa Magara as well; that thing looks terrifying!

It was great seeing the brand-new Insect Rod in action like that, though I would have liked to have seen a bit more on the Charge Axe. I loved watching the hunter utilise the new mechanic that allows them to jump on top of monsters, as well. I’d seen it done to a Great Jaggi in a previous trailer, but to be able to ride something as big as a Tigrex? I would never have thought it possible.

Japan have also been treated to a new TV advertisement for Monster Hunter 4 featuring a local celebrity. You can view it here:

Monster Hunter 4 will be released on September 14th in Japan as a Nintendo 3DS exclusive. No word has been heard on a Western release as of yet.

    Yeah, I’d also like to see more of the Charge Axe too. That’s probably the weapon I’ll be using when this game comes West. That’s if Capcom wants money enough to localize it.
