Capcom have shared more screenshots of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, highlighting two of the new monsters in the game. Below, you can find screenshots and a profile for Volvidon and Lagombi.
With its armadillo-like shell and physique, rolling into a ball shape is no trouble for Volvidon; and with that, it can quickly roll forward, backward and even sideways, depending on where you and your companions are.
Another of Volvidon’s tricks is actually spitting a paralyzing ball that will induce a Paralysis status effect to any of its targets. This is often followed up by one of his various rolling attacks, and you can’t do anything about it if you’re paralyzed; it’s best to be careful then.
In order to survive in the Tundra’s cold and harsh environments, the Lagombi sports a thick layer of fur on its back and a strong and smooth shell coating on its belly, which allows it to slide in the snow-covered areas at high speeds.
In order for you to survive the Tundra’s environments, you’ll need to defeat the Lagombi… and bring Hot Drinks. With its aforementioned shell, the Lagombi can slide away from you, towards you, and even in a circular motion to trap you in place. You’ll either need to run fast or be quick with your guarding – both options require Stamina, which will deplete faster if you stay out in the cold for too long; so again: Hot Drinks.
