Monster Hunter 4, due for release on Nintendo 3DS in Japan on September 19th, got a new trailer during today’s Japanese Nintendo Direct. Check it out below:
Looks like 3.
Looks worse than 3U actually. At least they're adding a decent amount of new content and features to make the purchase justifiable.
Keep in mind that this is meant to be seen on a 3-4 inch screen, but it's being stretched to fit a full PC screen.
can we please inaly get a decent Monster Hunter on the Playstation? They completely skipped the Ps3 here in the UK & the US, I've had to play Unite on my old PSP. A new one on the Ps4 would be crazy!
"Keep in mind that this is meant to be seen on a 3-4 inch screen" And the textures still look horrible in comparison to 3U trailers and even gameplay videos recorded by players themselves.
But it has online play, doesn't it? That alone might make it worthwhile, or at least less mind-numbingly tedious.
No offense, but i think this should be on the vita. This is my opinion but i think the two analog sticks are perfect for this. For the information : i have a 3DS
More like these Should be Better on the Vita and Wii U. Anyway, MH's Contract expires after these MH4 so I expect they would return to SONY's territory where they would look better. :) Too bad they're capabilities limited because of the 3ds. MH3ds looks like the same as MH portable 3rd in PSP.
It's not about sony but its because the handheld version does not appeal to me. The wii U version is of MH 3 Ultimate superb ( i also have a Wii U :) Suprised?) I know people really disagree with me because i do not share their platform of choice with this game
I own a Wii U and a PS Vita, I sold My 3ds because MH is the only reason I bought it. Too bad MH In 3ds Looks just awful. Sony is where MH really belong just saying.
the vita aint even got a Slider-Pad, vita got its prickly joysticks for the kids to be able to play their 1st person shooters. Monster Hunter better played with a slider-pad like the 3DS's made for adventure games Like Monster Hunter. . p.s. . . the vid you just saw is a blown up version of its original form which will be displayed on the 3DS, so of course it looks blocky.
If I went into a Vita article and banged on about how such and such a game would be better on the 3ds I'd expect to get marked down for trolling or being off topic. Who cares why you think it would be better on the Vita, the fact is this article isn't about the game being on the Vita because it's not on the Vita. Take your crap elsewhere.
No Kid, Reality states that It would look and will be better on the Vita than the 3ds would ever be. Open Your Eyes. Delusional fanboys are the only ones who will says MH in 3ds would look and will be better than the Vita version FYI.
And which Vita game would be better on the 3DS? Because as far as i know the Vita is a lot more powerful than the 3DS and the only thing the 3DS has is an extrascreen and 3D (talking about hardware only).
I don't really care, kid, there are loads of console games that would look and play a hell of a lot better on my pc, but it's pointless going into articles about those console games and pointing it out. I would rightly get marked as trolling. You obviously can't see the point I'm making, kid. Seems to be one rule for a certain group on this site, and another rule for everyone else. @MasterCornholio You can't see the point I'm making either obviously, right over your head. Why am I not surprised.
UUhm i refer to : MH was a PSP exclusive ^^ Sorry for making you mad. I just said i would like it to be on vita. Uuhm at a lot of articles ( maybe not on this site) i hear 3ds guys say oowh persona 4 should come to 3ds. You dont hear me cry about that:) You sir need to relax a bit ;) and for the information im a wii u owner and a 3ds owner ;) So i can have an opinion about that ;)
Er... controlling the camera manually via shoulder buttons or via another analog stick... these are both really crappy solutions to MonHan's chief problem. The only thing MonHan4 needs is a decent lock-on mechanic.
The 3DS has so many games, good god....
Yeah Right, lots of Mario 1,2,3 an so on and lots of zelda 1,2,3 and so on an lots of pokemon 1,2 and 3 LOL! Just the same prequels and sequels all over again.
Is there anything wrong with sequels? As long as they are good iterations, there's nothing to complain about really, not to mention you left out the TONS of third party exclusives that the system has and is getting, wish I could say the same for Vita....
Hey buddy no need to get mad over the fact that 3DS is practically destroying the Vita is every possible way. The Vita is a good handheld, just not as good as the 3DS.
If you're dissing Fire Emblem: Awakening for being a sequel, your argument is invalid, and you should just go play it. New IP doesn't mean a new game. How many different IPs out there spawned the same old crap with a different coat of paint? I'd rather a new Mario from their Tokyo studio than a samey shooter with a new story on one of the big consoles any day. A new Advance Wars over a totally original Kinect game. "Amy" was a new IP, too, you know. And you have the name @demonsoul. If that's in relation to Demon's Souls, you probably appreciate a difficult but fair title, something challenging. Luckily, the DS and 3DS are the only places you can get Etrian Odyssey or its offshoots like The Dark Spire or SMT: Strange Journey. Get on that!
Vita has alot of unique and underrated games compared to 3ds.
Good Lord, I'm not trying to turn this in to a debate lol, I like the idea of Vita right now, and I agree that some games in it's library are underrated, BUT it is possible to enjoy BOTH of the handhelds you know. For me, and I'm speaking in terms of my self NOT everyone, the Vita isn't worth the high price tag, because is lacks a killer app, and I'm not talking about good games like Gravity Rush or Persona 4, I'm talking about those kinds of games that just about EVERY review site and Forum unanimously agree that the game in question is of the quality to justify the purchase of the hardware it's on. The vita DOES NOT have that game, yet. But I hope it will. While the 3DS does have a killer app. Kingdom Heats 3D, Fire Emblem, and Pokemon are the reasons I bought the system, and there are a TON of other great games to choose from that AREN'T sequels like you said. So at the end of the day, it comes down to what games you like, and the 3DS offers WAY more in that department than the Vita does, plus it's cheaper.
monsters here look like they are lacking space on the 3DS's screen..it just look so awful you are like fighting with polygons and pixels...better stay with the console version
"better stay with the console version" About that
3DS has better games anyway. Watch this game explode in Japan.
So many jealous haters here lol If you're such a Monster Hunter fan then it shouldn't matter to you what console or handheld it's on.
Wow its like all the butt hurt sony fans who use to play Monster Hunter just gather to hate on anything MH related that comes out for Nintendo. Get over it and enjoy the game they offer. it'll look alot better when its not being blow up 5x it size geez.
Oh this is a PSP game? Oh wait.. it honestly looks like trash. Fun I bet but just looks bad.
IT WILL LOOK BETTER ON THE 3DS SCREEN
finally someone here with a brain
RELEASE IT on SONY consoles idiots ...terrible grafics ,lot of the same monsters ...monster hunter hunter CANNOT evolve on 3DS....it just get wasted
LOL Have you not learnt? PSP has better graphics than the DS and the DS outsold it. The 3DS is weaker than the Vita but has much more games and is selling so much more. If they released it on the Vita how much would it sell? 3DS has a bigger install base than the Vita!!
well... too be honest, the ds outsold it because the game is suitable to everyone and the game is free LOL~ R4 card is bundle with 2gb microSD(20-40games)+DS that selling in my country compare to PSP 4gb that only get (2-5games) :P so... when the Parents want to buy something for the kids, they choose QUANTITY over QUALITY. so far the sales VITA > 3DS, a lots of trade in 3DS in store with game(mostly mario, zelda, Nintendo exclusive) but... when those pirate open the 3DS, VITA sales will doomed lol~
I just want to start off and say why do people act like this game can't be on more than one system? The only reason it isn't is simply because Capcom won't, not because they can't but because they won't. They just ported Revelations and you people act like they can't make more money by releasing MH4 on more than just the 3DS? That is just total rubbish. No shit Wii U and PS Vita has small install base but the PS3 and 360 sure as hell don't though and regardless it would take them little to no effort to port it to other systems. We all know it would sell well across all systems also which boggles my mind even more as to why they won't other than having a deal with Nintendo and MH which is clearly obvious. MH4 would be better on anything other than the 3DS currently and that is the just the truth. I own one, I play it frequently but how stupid could one be to seriously say otherwise or even debate 3DS controls are better.. They really aren't. I didn't like PSP games that obviously needed a second analog stick (god FPS on that thing sucked) and the same could be said about the 3DS.. I don't want to break out a damn add on that barely works with most my games just for MH4. I just don't get you people defending it, like it can never leave the 3DS when it is so obvious this type of game is better suited for other systems control wise and it would just look 1000x.. not 100x or 10x, 1000x better. Again it isn't because Capcom technically couldn't, it was simply because they didn't want to. So for all you people thinking any person talking about another system is crying, they aren't. Monster Hunter used to be on better systems, so people have every right to question and complain about Capcom's bullshit. Portable 3rd on PSP looks better than MH4 on 3DS, yea.. yea.. game play game play but the game play would be the same on the Wii U, PS Vita, PS3 or 360 if not easier and better to play that is. Then using a circle pad pro with this is beyond stupid. So put it on a system without one, that obviously improves game play for many as to why it is even an add on for the 3DS.. but no don't port it to any other systems that already had that. That makes even more sense. So ass backwards. P.S. By all means I am not saying the 3DS can't have MH4 either like I expected it to stay on Playstation or something. Basically in short I am saying any person with common sense knows it would look better and play better on the other systems available.
