Capcom has announced Monster Hunter 4 will be available in Japan this fall after it was shown in a Japanese Nintendo Direct this morning. The highly successful fantasy action franchise will be released for the Nintendo 3DS on September 14, priced at 5990 yen. To coincide with the release, a special edition 3DS and 3DS LL will be launched on the same day as well.
Monster Hunter 4 will bring back popular monsters from the series, as well as showcasing a whole host of new monsters. The use of weapons and their actions has been advanced, with two new additions to the roster, including souchuukan and a charge axe. Plus, if Japan weren’t luck enough, Capcom are even hosting a demo event at Aqua City in Odaiba tomorrow and Saturday. It’s still unknown whether Monster Hunter 4 will make it to the West, but in the meantime check out the trailer above.
