Monster Hunter 4 Will Take Players Underground

By Spencer . October 9, 2012 . 3:25pm

mhfFamitsu has a preview for Monster Hunter 4 this week which shows a new field called the Underground Cave.


The magazine also has a look at four monsters – Yian Kut-Ku, Tetsukabura, Nelskura, and Gypceros. We’ve seen Gypceros before in Monster Hunter Frontier and Yian Ku-Ku is a fire breathing wyvern from the original Monster Hunter.


Monster Hunter 4 is scheduled for spring 2013 in Japan.

    I remember Gypceros in Freedom Unite too, not sure if it also was in MHG. Kind of annoying to take out at first, but learning its pattern wasn’t too hard.

      Gypceros has been in it since the very first game, and been in every one since until MHFU > w <; Although he hasn't made any appearances since; so this is a welcome addition o 3 o He was always kind of the step up from fighting a Kut-ku,and a pretty fun fight if you ask me o3o~

  • Gypceros first appearance was in the original Monster Hunter game for the PS2, much before Monster Hunter Frontier though

  • I’m waiting for my sky boss fight in Monster Hunter, ala Shadow of the Colossus.

    Fighting on Underground does sounds interesting imagine, swimming from one cave to another cave to ambush the monster.^_^

    • No swimming in 4 :-(
      While I would rather tackle any monster on land than in the water in Tri, it was a nice change of pace, and made reaching certain breakable spots way easier!

      Still super excited about any info, especially a Western Release perhaps?

        Still a little bummed about the lack of swimming, but I suppose the game is shaping up to be pretty cool as a whole.

    All right! I love fighting Gypceros,It’s just such a goofball with it’s exaggerated,sloppy,clownish movements.

    • Yeah along with conga lala they are some of the most fun monsters.Also they drop power extracts !!

  • hongisfire

    Wait, Gypceros live in swamp. Qurupeco sub live in Swamp.
    if gypceros in this game, no qurupeco sub then?

  • konsama

    Gypceros was quite tricky before you got how to kill it, i can’t imagine how crazy he will be now, maybe his trolling skills got honed. xD

    I miss the Yian Kut ku. :( O-Oh did someone say Yian Garuga -_-
    The Yian Kut Ku was an easy but fun monster to hunt. :) I wonder how it has improved. What if it can climb walls. :P
