All-new Monster Hunter 4 details

How to stop the Beserk Dragon virus

You will be infected by something called the Beserk Dragon Virus in Monster Hunter 4, the sequel to the Wii classic which is only playable on 3DS

This Beserk Dragon virus, then. It infects you if you are close to a Tigrex who has already been infected and when attacked by this beast, the power gauge will increase. As for your own gauge, that will appear beneath your name and will cause the Beserk Dragon illness to break out.

You can stop it by attacking Tigrex before the gauge appears. And if you do manage to remove the virus, your weapons hit ratio increases.

Finally, we have news of the Gore Magala, a moth powder that sticks to you and makes the Gore Magala detect you.

    The Beserk Dragon Virus sounds stupid, but it also sounds like Capcom are trying to make a story out of the game for a change. So i'll look forward to hopefully playing it.

    I haven't got a 3DS but I've got Monster Hunter 3 on pre-order for the Wii u. If I enjoy that I might invest in this if it gets a great reveiw.

    To be honest, i didnt mind the fact MH games had next to no story. It was never the story that was the focus of MH games

    Monster Hunter 4, the sequel to the Wii classic which is only playable on 3DS? That's a funny way of putting it. The CLASSIC game is for PS2..
