This past week, Capcom revealed the new Monster Hunter 4 weapon that Nintendo teased last week. Today, they’ve released a batch of new screenshots showing it off, and you can view them below.


As detailed in our earlier report, the new weapon lets you control insects. It’s called the “Souchuukon”. The insects are described as mobile drones that can get to areas that the player can’t, and have the ability to extract energy from a monster and bring it back to you. Depending on its colour, you receive various benefits. White increases your speed, red increases you attack, green increases health, and orange increases your defense.
