The keyword for Monster Hunter 4, according to Capcom, is “adventure”. As previously reported, Monster Hunter 4 has the most NPCs of any Monster Hunter game to date. This is being done in order to create a greater sense of immersion for the game’s single-player campaign, but it isn’t the only new feature.
New to Monster Hunter 4 is the idea of you being a nomadic hunter. Instead of there being a single village that acts as your base, you travel in a caravan that concept art shows turning into a camp. Using the caravan, you’ll travel to different villages. Yes, there are multiple villages in Monster Hunter 4, Capcom tell Famitsu.com, and each one has its own chief and its own culture.
The first village in the game is called Barbaré, and it has all your standard facilities. However, villages you visit later in the game will have their own unique facilities that you can’t find anywhere else.
