Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Shows Us The Latest Monster Subspecies

By Sato . September 1, 2014 . 12:29pm


Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate adds new and difficult ranks of quests to the game, while introducing stronger “subspecies” of past monsters. The game’s official website gives us a look at what foes we’ll encounter in the upcoming game.


For those of you who aren’t familiar with Monster Hunter subspecies, they’re alternate versions of monsters, usually with different colors, attacks, and movement patterns. Sometimes they’re vastly more powerful than their original counterparts.


Here’s a look at some of the latest subspecies monsters we’ll see in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.

  • flameraver64

    Wish there were a few more new monsters, the 3rd gen spoiled me with sooooo many new monsters. It’ll be cool fighting some older 2nd gen monsters with the upgraded animations/engine though

  • The only sub to have an English name so far is the Najarala sub; known as the Tidal Najarala.
