    I hope this Kunchuu isn’t going to be worse than Vespoid.

    • Luis Enrique

      Seeing how it can roll, it looks like a bullfango mixed with a vespoid, things can only end well.

        At least I hope the ywon’t EXPLODE like Vespoids.

    Isn’t the Switch Axe good enough? Eh, I don’t care, more options are better. I suffered mightily when the only two handed sword was Greatsword, but I’ve done so much better ever since Long Sword was added.

    EDIT: Wait… this IS the Switch Axe! Goshdarnit I was tricked. :| Why you gotta change names Capcom.

    • They’re going for a slightly different angle with the Charge Axe. Judging by what we’ve seen, it looks like the lighter variant of Switch Axe, which I’m sure lots of people will welcome. This one switches between an axe and sword/shield.

        I actually would very much like that! That was my main complaint with Switch Axe, and I’m looking forward to this.

        • I totally thought Charge Axe would be my new main weapon once MH4 came out. Then MH3U showed me that my true calling lies with the Light Bowgun. Sigh. And MH4 hasn’t shown anything to get us Bowgunners excited about yet. :(

      …But the Switch Axe is in this game, too.

    god damn that thing looks scary

    but you know i can deal with snakes just as long as they don’t put a giant spider monster in there i think i’m good

    The Snake Dragon looks awesome, I like it! :v
    Plus, I think I’ll use Charge Axe in MH4 very often. In the previous games I have focalized my attention on Gunlances and Great Swords… This time I’ll use any type I want.
