Capcom has released two new trailers today, the first one being the “No Boundaries”-trailer for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and the latter a really neat looking peek at the upcoming Monster Hunter Frontier G.
I do have to admit that I kind of miss goold ol’ Ironbeard who was the flagship of the Western Monster Hunter Franchise when Monster Hunter Tri hit the shelves.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRmN6uSscNo] [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXwui8X0bvA]
One of the coolest things about Monster Hunter is that it’s not only fun to play, but also fun to watch. Seeing how a couple of weapon-wielding hunters try to take down a monster five times their size is just something that doesn’t get boring very quickly. And I also think that this is probably why the series has reached its degree of popularity among gamers (especially in Japan).
The game doesn’t really provide you with a story or an aim. You just get thrown into this amazing world filled with huge dragons, wyverns and other incredible creatures and try to deal with them as best you can. Any way you choose to face/fight these monsters is ok. There really is no wrong way to play it. I think it’s this kind of liberty that attracts many players. A feature that has been expanded in the latest addition to the series (Monster Hunter 4). Even though we won’t be seeing this game for a while in the west, the trailers look very promising.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtulY5crZNA]
Capcom has released a couple more screenshots of the upcoming Monster Hunter 4. It’s remarkable how you get a completely different vibe from them as compared to screenshots from MHFU or MH3U. They really seem to go for a different kind of gaming experience it seems.
