Capcom have released a story trailer for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which is slated for release in North America and Europe on February 13th. You can watch it above.
In Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, a mysterious virus is making the rounds, infecting monsters and causing them to go berserk. The root of the virus seems to lie with the Gore Magala, a new flagship monster that has the ability to affect others and turn them crazy. This virus serves as the backdrop for your hunting adventures.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be released on the same day as the New Nintendo 3DS in both territories, although it is playable on the older 3DS models as well. Nintendo and Capcom are also releasing a limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL bundle with the game packed in.
Siliconera will kick off its impressions of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate in the near future. Prior to its release, Capcom will also release a publicly available demo for the game via the Nintendo eShop, with online multiplayer enabled.
