These Monsters Are Getting New Sub-Species In Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

By Ishaan . July 12, 2014 . 5:00pm

Capcom showed off a bunch of returning monsters and new monster sub-species that will be in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate at a “hunting carnival” event in Akihabara this week. 4Gamer were at the event and reported back with details and photographs if you’re curious.


As always, director Kaname Fujioka and producer Ryozo Tsujimoto were present to discuss the game. Joining them were comedians Yoshiyuki Hirai and Tetsuya Yanagihara of the “America Zarigani” comedy duo. You may remember Hirai as the director of Level 5’s Weapon Shop de Omasse.


Following the event, Capcom sent out a press release highlighting some of the new sub-species and returning monsters that you’ll find in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Some of these were revealed in the new trailer that was streamed via Nintendo Direct on Friday, but now we have screenshots.

    I know the US division of Capcom has slowly been releasing the localized names of the new monsters, but are these all confirmed new localizations? Or maybe Capcom US already officially announced these monsters and I just didn’t notice

    • Yep, these are the official names.

  • 하세요

    Crab battles shall return. If only Portable 3rd’s MGS DLC were to return.

  • Purple is a popular color for subspecies.

  • Land of Green Pasture

    Zamtrios 1st pic : Look! it’s a cute pufferfish…

    a pic later… wait a sec…
    a pic later again…. OMGWTF!! it haz foot!? it gunna eat me whole!!

    that thing sure seems like Cephadrome… but more frightening…
    and for me Cephadrome is one of my most feared monster in MH, it just looks so creepy for me… damn that void yellow eyes

  • The first monster looks like Narga, just wondering if lucent is going back in this game?

    • 하세요

      Regular and Green Narga both aren’t (standard Narga armor is trade material quest) so I don’t see Lucent returning and not the other two lower Nargas.

      • Attribule

        Diablos wasn’t in 4 but you could trade for its equipment. Diablos is now in 4G.

        4th Gen really just does what it wants. We have to wait till the complete list is available to know who’s actually in the game and who isn’t.

        • 하세요

          You are right, I totally forgot about that. Either way, I still stand by them needing to add Narga as a whole before throwing in his third tier subspecies. They can skip Green Narga, since Portable 3rd had no problem skipping Azure Los and Pink Rath but still adding Silver/Gold.

          I do wish he did return, but 4G is a day one buy for me regardless. Wish they’d go over how the data transfer will work already.

    • biskmater

      that’s the new flagship monster, I think. No name for it yet. English or Japanese

  • MaidKillua

    Giant enemy crab! (In all seriousness though I couldn’t possibly be more excited for this as it is anyway, there’s no need to continue building my hype)

  • Vash bane

    sub species of monsters I never even heard of…nice and I might not be a solo hunter this time around too many new creatures I never seen before

  • omgwtfhax

    “The event was titled ‘Hunting Rival'”
    It was actually a play on the word “carnival.”
    カーニバル (kānibaru) -> 狩ーリバル (kāribaru)

    • This is what happens when you decide to translate stuff at 4 in the morning. I completely glossed over that entire phrase. Fixed.

  • DarthSithZero

    Can’t F***ing Wait, Hurry up 2015!!!

  • Pandakids09 .

    Then they say ‘early 2015’ i’m expecting it by January 1st lol

    • David_c

      maybe feb-march

      • Pandakids09 .

        Lets hope sooner then that

  • Lemski07

    my money is bored waiting…

  • Namuro

    Glad to see that they didn’t mess around too much with the names, but what’s wrong with the name Garara Ajara? Was there really a need to slightly change that one? Also, Zamtrios sounds like some kind of ointment…

    • 하세요

      You gotta admit, Garara Ajara is a mouthful of “ra” lol, but I love it for that reason.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Oh man Nerscylla and Tetsucabra look menacingly adorable. Oh man Najarala too but at some angles that thing freaks me out.

  • Good lord this game is gonna consume my life.

  • triablos

    Glad to see the 2 monsters responsible for my username. But seriously why are cephalos/drone in monhun anymore? Fucking annoying plesioth wannabes that stay underground forever

  • Eriol

    Monster Hunter just isn’t the same without that SKREEEEE roaring through your normal Earplugs. I’m glad they’re bringing Diablos back.

  • MaidKillua

    I get the feeling that Gen 4 will be the point where most of us give up risking embarrassing ourselves pronouncing monster names and just use abbreviations or descriptions when speaking out loud…

  • NTaiyokun

    F*** diablos

  • isotrex

    I’m ready to kill those beautiful creatures!
