Earlier this year, Capcom said that a Monster Hunter 3DS game is probable and now we have confirmation of its existence.

According to the magazine, the game will feature the underwater battles that were introduced in Monster Hunter Tri (pictured above). Players can also expect local wireless play.

Apparently the controls are slightly different in the underwater sections but it still plays like Monster Hunter Tri.

In addition to using the second Circle Pad, the game also utilises the touchscreen with players tapping it to make characters turn to face larger beasts.

The game is planned for release in Japan at the end of the year and will feature a monster called Blakidios on its cover.

Are you looking forward to Monster Hunter 3G?
