The latest edition of Famitsu magazine contains some new information about Monster Hunter 4. The long-awaited game will feature a new snake dragon which is called Garara Ajara which uses its long snake-like body to entangle its prey. Garara Ajara’s fangs are venomous which means that it will be a formidable foe to come across. There’s also a new insect-based monster called, Kunchuu. Kunchuu attack in groups and will also roll themselves into balls to fend off hunters. These insects also provide a favourable meal for Yian Kut-Ku.
The magazine also contains details about the new charge attack In Sword mode. You’ll get to do whirling slashes, finishing hits and dashing attacks. The Charge Axe will feature horizontal finishers and it also has a finishing attack that changes it to its Sword mode. Attacking will also charge its sword energy, which will be used for charge attacks. Monster Hunter 4 will be released in the summer in Japan.
