Read on for the goodies, and in case you missed out, here’s the article showing off the game’s weapons.




First up is Jinouga, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd’s poster boy. The Jinouga has highly-developed front legs, which is what it primarily uses to take down prey. It can charge up for a powerful lightning attack, too.

Next, you have Urukususu. The Urukususu can slide on its belly on smooth surfaces like icy slopes to attack you hard and fast. It’s said to have excellent hearing, but that also makes it vulnerable to loud noises. It can throw ice blocks at you, too.

Then there’s Aoashira, who looks kind of like…a bear-monkey. Aoashira inhabits mountains and humid forest regions. It’s known for its love for honey, as well as catching fish by the banks of rivers.

The Dosufurogi is identified by an inflated sac around its neck area that contains poison. When spat by the Dosufurogi, this poison takes on the form of a mist that can incapacitate even larger herbivorous creatures. Dosufurogi usually tend to act in a herd like the other bird wyverns.

This past week’s Famitsu magazine showed off three of Portable 3rd’s sub-species, too. The game’s official website now has clearer images and screenshots of them. And here are comparison shots with their original designs.
