Monster Hunter Tri is one of the best looking Wii games and judging by these first Monster Hunter Tri 3G screenshots, Capcom hasn't let the quality slip on 3DS.
These images - taken from the official Monster Hunter 3DS site - show some of the monsters you'll be able to battle in the game, including the cover star - Brakidos.
Andriasang report that the yellowy green substance on his forehead and front legs explodes after a certain amount of time. It also headbutts its opponents. Vistors to the Tokyo Games Show this month will be able to take him on in one of three playable quests.
You'll have 12 weapons at your disposal though, all of which can be used in the underwater areas. The bowgun that appeared in Tri will be streamlined and divided into 'light' and 'heavy' categories.
Before setting out on your battle missions, you'll be stationed at Tanzia Harbor, a crucial trade route hub. Tanzia is known as an oasis for sea goers.
As for the all-important controls, you can play the game with just the Circle Pad and buttons or you can use the touchscreen for some hunting functions. As revealed yesterday, you'll also be able to use the 3DS Circle Pad attachment.
The Target Camera panel is housed on the touchscreen and by pressing the L button, you'll turn to face the large beast you're currently fighting. Turn it off, and the camera will be positioned behind your back.
