Capcom have released a brand new trailer for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, known in Japan as Monster Hunter 4G.

The trailer shows off the beasties that will be seen in the game, both old and new. You can check it out below.

Both my partner and I own a Japanese 3DS and a copy of Monster Hunter 4and I’m going to be using it to write all about the new monsters. The first thing that struck me was the desert area; that did NOT exist in MH4, so there’s confirmation of a new area for those who have been playing 4.

The returning monsters I spy are the Gendrome and its minions, the Genprey; the Diablos, Cephadrome, Daimyo Hermitaur, Monoblos, Red Khezu (I’ve been helping my partner farm Khezu the last couple of days and did NOT need to see one again), and, of course, the classic Tigrex. I realise some of the monsters listed here were also in MH4, but I thought I’d include them for good measure, and for those who were unaware.

I’ve spied a number of subspecies for monsters new to 4 in this trailer. We have an icy version of the Garara Ajara and the Generu Serutasu; the originals hung out in the swamp. There’s a green Tetsukabura and a blue Kechawacha that uses fire instead of water. For the new desert area, there’s a subspecies for both Zaboazagiru and Nerusukyura. In addition, it looks as if the new Nerusukyura uses paralysis instead of poison. It will probably be just as creepy.

However. What is that monster at the end? Tyler reckons its body shape reminded him of a Nargacuga or a Barioth; another friend of mine said he thought it looked like a Tigrex until he saw the thing on its head. I’m sure it will be revealed later, but until then, Capcom will continue to tease us.

So, who here is getting this game when it release? Anyone out there who, like my partner and I, already have it in Japanese? Let us know, and hey, if you want to hunt, hit me up!

    Hope we’ll get it on WiiU like 3G 🙂

  • Airiaen

    The head actually looks a bit similar to Rathian but grr.. can’t wait. heh.

  • Michael Ramos

    Wow… I missed out on a LOT of monsters… some of these are TERRIFYING O_O anyone want to clue me in as to which MH version they are from? (only if you want)

    • Charlotte Buckingham

      All those new subspecies pictured are new to 4U, and the monsters they’re subspecies of are from 3.

      The big image in the first batch is of the Tigrex, specifically a subspecies introduce in 4; I don’t know how it differs from the original monster because I haven’t got to it yet.

      The Gendrome (brown/green bird wyvern), Cephadrome (Hammerhead shark), Red Khezu (red one) and Monoblos (scary unicorn) are first-gen monsters. The Daimyo Hermitaur is a second-gen monster. It’s the hermit crab puctured eating the hunter. The Diablos is the one with its face stuck in the wall, and is from Tri.

      Then there’s the thing at the end. No idea what it is, but the general consensus is that it’s never been seen before so it’s totally new.

      Black tigrex was introduced in portable 3rd, but he got another sub in 4 (it’s hella scary, it has blast ailment and insanely strong roar based attacks on top of two rage modes that stack).
