E3 may not officially start until next week, but that hasn’t stopped Capcom from unveiling its Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate E3 trailer, some screenshots and additional details.

It isn’t really anything we haven’t seen already, and if I wasn’t already planning to buy the game, I’m not sure if this would make me take notice. The screenshots are for the fans, though:

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate | Magala

First, we have a monster that I haven’t seen before (I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t even gotten very far into Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate). It’s apparently a Gore Magala. Looks interesting. I’ll give it a shot.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate | Insect Glaive

Now we take a look at one of the new weapons. This particular one is called an Insect Glaive. I’m really interested, since I prefer weapons with high speed.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate | Great Jaggi

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate | Great Jaggi Attack

Now a couple of screenshots of a Great Jaggi, who first made an appearance in Monster Hunter Tri. It may be a pushover, it still looks fun to fight here.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate | TigrexAnother monster rises: the Tigrex of Monster Hunter Freedom 2 fame! He’s still looking cool as ever. I can’t wait to fight him.

So, yeah, all in all, the game is looking good. I can’t wait to see more of this at E3.
