Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate’s Latest Trailer Shows Us A New Monster

By Sato . July 11, 2014 . 4:40am


Ryozo Tsujimoto made an appearance in Nintendo Direct for third party 3DS games this morning, to show and discuss the latest features that will be added to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, along with a look at the game’s latest trailer.


The trailer shows some of the new footage including a look at the remade version of the Old Desert, to go with familiar monsters like Daimyo Hermitaur, Monoblos and Diablos among others who’ll make a come-back in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.


Finally, it ends with a look at the new gold-scaled monster giving the hunter in the video quite the rough time. This monster was originally teased in a  previous trailer. Oh, and we also catch a glimpse of a funky-looking Felyne.


Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is slated for release in Japan on October 11, 2014, and in the West in early 2015 for Nintendo 3DS.

    that new monster’s speed… is rivaling that of Narga… I thought he’s as fast a monster could be… until I’ve seen this thing…

    Let’s not forget the fact that even Felynes can launch up hunters to do vault attacks. Pretty awesome for those solo times.

  • Namuro

    This trailer literally blew my pants away… yup!

    The Felynes can do even more stuff now; especially how they can vault the players into the air! That really reminds me of Dragon’s Dogma!

    The new monster is really impressive as well. Looks like a real threat! I could have sworn that at one point. it seems like it was clashing against the player with its talons. The rage state looks awesome as hell, too!

    They also seem to have added a good chunk of new story in the game, with a lot of cinematic scenes, which is always welcomed! Speaking of which, that’s Dondruma, right? Seeing this, I hope they bring back some other familiar towns, too. I wanna revisit some places like Pokke Village.

    Anyway, I’m gonna go get my pants, and I’ll be seeing you guys in a few months!

      You know what I’m hoping for although it’s kind of small? Being able to set a “home town” and access the Guild Hall from there. I really love Naguri Village but there’s no reason to go there outside of Excavated gear. Same with Chico Village.

      • Namuro

        That’d be grand!

        As for me, I really want a customizable room… They have that in Frontier, I’m sure it’s not that hard to add it in 4G…or is it?

        Would be nice, if we can invite friends to our personalized rooms, and just chill out. They can also add furnitures-crafting, or excavating in as well!

        …It’s one thing or the other, isn’t it? If I want to customize room, I might as well play Animal Crossings!


  • MaidKillua

    All I have to say is that 2015 can’t come soon enough

  • Adrián Alucard

    Lagiacrus armor (1:06)?

    • 하세요

      That’s been in MH4 day 1. Trade material armor. He’s not in the game himself.

      • Adrián Alucard

        oh, I didn’t know it. Thanks

  • Mixkon

    So is 4G the same as 4 ultimate?

    • Adrián Alucard

      Yes, like Monster Hunter 3G and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

    • Namuro

      The only difference should be the DLC weapons. Which is why they held the competition for the Ultimate version.

  • triablos

    Wow, I’m hyped. 2015 can’t come soon enough!


  • Serge

    I’ve been playing mh3u for almost 100 hours and there are so much things that i haven’t done yet. I feel like this game deserve every bit of popularity that have in Japan.

    • Jonattas F.

      I’ve been playing mh3u for almost 400 hours and I feel like there’s another 400 hours of fun waiting for me :D

      • Adrián Alucard

        I´ve played for 700 hours only with a blademaster (I still need to craft a couple of armors and upgrade some weapons) and I want to spend another 700 with a gunner character

  • Lemski07

    uber hype goosebumps!

  • I’ve never played a MH game before, but that looked really awesome. =)

  • Yue D Andre

    This is Monster Hunter 4Go Green

  • Helios373


  • flameraver64

    Woah, was this the first time we knew of the Japanese release date? SO HYPED!

    Also hoping that cool felyne isn’t a Japan-only DLC

  • هاكو ممممممممم

    That music playing at the end is from ff x-2

    • 하세요

      It sounds very similar to Bikanel Desert, but it isn’t.

  • Damn, those are some incredible graphics for a 3DS game.

  • sd28

    i am preparing my self for the inevitable double infected black diablos quest

    • Joshua Myers

      How about double Tigrex? XD omg that quest sucked in MHFU

    • 9breaker

      Dual one horned diablos would be the bane of this game for me lol.

  • Vash bane

    1:37 is that the lighting wolf armor (I know its name lol im just saying it like this to be simply)? if yes then some armors will be updated?

    • Ric Vazquez

      Zinogre armor or Jinouga armor whichever floats your boat, and yeah it seems like some armors will have a different look, I caught a glimpse of the brachydios armor and it didn’t look like the one on MH3U.

  • Armageddon

    The game looks nice, but put some AA or something.
