Nintendo and Capcom, over the weekend, revealed that there’s a brand-new mainstream Monster Hunter title in the works that goes by the name Monster Hunter X. Like the previous title Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, this new addition to long lineage of games will also be released on the Nintendo 3DS and will use as many of the console’s capabilities as it can. Announced at the Monster Hunter: Hunter no Tsudoi 2015 event, there was nothing but word of the new game until the Sunday that has just passed when a teaser trailer was released as part of the Nintendo Direct presentation over in Japan.
Despite still being in development and still so far away from a full release, Nintendo and Capcom have stated that this is a title set to hit shelves this Winter. The trailer, which I’ve provided for you below, goes for a nice two and a half minutes and gives you just a small taste of what’s to come in the new Monster Hunter X, so check it out and get ready for one hell of a crazy hunt!
