Capcom and Nintendo partner to launch what it seems to be the biggest leap forward for the Monster Hunter series
In Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, players will take on the role of a hunter on a grand adventure with a traveling caravan visiting several new locales with hundreds of quests to be cleared on the way. For the first time ever for the Monster Hunter series on a handheld system, players will be able to join up with friends over the internet via the Nintendo Network, as well as the previously available local wireless option. The game will introduce an expanded action set including more vertical and lateral movement, fluid climbing motions, and ability to ride atop monsters. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate also debuts two weapon classes, features new and returning monsters, and spans more locales for the most robust hunting experience than ever before.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be distributed by Nintendo across Europe in early 2015, for 3DS and 2DS.
