Monster Hunter 4’s New Trailer Shows Fearsome Beasts And Dazzling Armor

By Sato . August 8, 2013 . 9:30am

In our earlier report, we took a closer look at Monster Hunter 4 cover monster, Goa Magara. Well, now you can get an even closer look at him in action, along with several other new and old monsters, in the game’s latest hunting packed trailer.



The trailer starts with a nice look at Barubare village and some of the first monsters that were introduced for Monster Hunter 4. About halfway through the trailer, Goa Magara is seen dashing and shooting dark breath attacks towards the helpless Hunter. Next up, is the Genel Sertas, a fearsome scorpion-type monster, who consumes its own friendly insects as a way to gain stamina.



Just in case you’ve missed Rathalos and Zinogre, they also make a brief appearance, just to remind us that Goa Magara isn’t the only tough monster around.



Finally, while Monster Hunter 4 will have dozens of intimidating monsters, the trailer also gives us a look at plenty of dazzling armor sets and weapons that show us why they’re all worth the hunt.


Monster Hunter 4 is slated for release on September 14 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Looks like Goa has 3 pairs of limbs? Like a Elder Dragon + beefy brute wyvren wing arms?

    • Syn

      Thought the exact same thing, must be a new class of Wyvern….or maybe, we are finally seeing a Normal dragon species, and not an elder one.

  • Peace Legacy

    The only thing that came to my head when finish watching the trailer…

    • J_Joestar

      really? can’t seem to find it, when did it show up?

      • there is a specific part where the hunter gets surrounded by lightning, afterwards they show what looks like a horse monster, its very brief and easy to miss but it looks like kirin

        • J_Joestar

          oh, i remember that part (I thought it might be the intro scene for Zinogre but found it odd that it was shown directly after revealing him instead of before).
          When it pans up to a cliff ledge and then there is a flash of light right?

          • yup thats the one, thought the same thing first time i saw then i rewatched it and noticed the shiny spot on the cliff

  • Anna Scruton

    • SuperBrother

      We’ll get it just not any time soon lol. We get every release of monster hunter in some form or another. Seeing as MH3U came out at the beginning of the summer I think it’ll be at least a year before we see MH4. Hopefully it’ll be some kind of Ultimate edition too

      • AdhesiveBoy

        I do remember capcom saying that they’d try to decrease the waiting period for foreign countries.

  • J_Joestar

    Zinogre! OMG now where is Dios?
    and is that Volvidon armor at 2:11?

  • and noone mentions kirin!? i wonder if they’ll bring back the old armor or give us a new one (probably old),
    im hoping barioth comes back loved the G rank version of his armor
    Gao magara looks freaking fierce man cant wait to see him in action

    Is the red Whale Boat-thing in the water? the fact that it clearly has what looks like a Dragonator in it’s mouth makes me wonder if we have another new giant Elder to fight.
