Brachydios, the cover star of Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate, is the latest new monster to be showcased ahead of the launch of the game in March.
Brachydios is a Brute Wyvern and Capcom warn that you have to watch your back in the volcano. This monster will spill puddles of slime which attaches itself to anyone who touches it, and can detonate after a certain time or even when you touch it. This slime also enables it to launch an explosive punch.
It is also one of the fastest and monsters in the game and will run around punching the ground and can leap across the zone to hit you with an explosive punch.
Then, when it gets angry, the green slime will appear on its back and head, it will start moving even faster and will go straight for the explosive punch.
It sounds like a tough monster to defeat but, when you do, you can use the slime to make weapons.
