"After a long wait, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will finally reach North America and Europe on February 13th. Having spent around 60 hours with the English-language version of the game so far, there’s a lot for us to talk about—overall presentation being one of them.
4 Ultimate is not only the most content-rich Monster Hunter to date, it’s also the most streamlined and informative, which should make it significantly easier for new players to get into, provided they’re willing to spend a little time with the game. Monster Hunter has always been built upon layers of complexity, and these have had a tendency to be off-putting to newcomers in the past. How do I use traps? What are decorations for? How do Skills work? These are some of the most common questions."
