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


    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.
