Recently we have been treated to a hearty Monster Hunter 4 trailer. Capcom has been kind enough to show off new features as well as elaborating on already known features so here's a few exciting bits and bobs that I noticed while watching the trailer.
New Monster [0:22]
The trailer begins by showing of a new, cobra like monster complete with a scaly hood around it's neck. With the ability to coil around a hunter, it looks pretty imposing but the fact that it looks like a parrot doesn't help its street-cred.
We get a sense that the environment will play a bigger role in this Monster Hunter game than in any before it. We can see a hunter scaling the walls of a cave to get closer to a Khezu and a raging Gypceros chasing a hunter along the sides of a cliff.
Charge Axe [1:10]
We're treated to a more in depth look at the new Charge Axe. Resembling the great sword and switch axe found in Monster Hunter Tri, it can be charged up to deal a massive blow or be treated more like a sword and shield to parry away attacks.
