    So according to the site in the source, it seems monster hunter 4 has now got a release date in japan and that is the 14th of September.

    Source: http://otakumode.com/news/51b35a4ca...Two-Special-Edition-Nintendo-3DS-XLs-Revealed!

    Also seems to be a ton of licensed/collaborative items as well,

    Thoughts?

    This is good news, now only if Nintendo would remove those damned region locks.

    Whats the consensus, will it come over here? Maybe not the special 3DS, but the game at least?

    I hope so....but I think it will take a while. Look at Monster Hunter 3U. It took forever to come out in NA, and damn...if it didn't sell too much.

    "The game is the first in the series to implement 3D action by use of the Nintendo 3DS’ height and depth differences."
    What does that mean? MH3U had 3D as well.

    Did it have the "pop-out-of-the-screen" effect that is usually in 3DS games?

    No it didn't, it was more of a depth perspective then pop out.
    Still a great game overall, but I'll be much more excited to see how we'll they use Pop out 3D in this MH~

    There is a stronger emphasis apparently on platforming than before, walls can now be climbed more fluidly and in any direction, and for the first time Hunters can grab onto monsters and attack them. Environments shown also appear to be larger than before.

    edit: this seems like a thing

    I just saw some Japanese gameplay footage. The polearm weapon can be used to vault onto monsters, and you are encouraged to climb up things, and jump onto monsters.

    It will be interesting...to say the least. (I'm going to miss the Shakalas...although.)

    YAY~! Kitty tanks!

    I cant wait for 4! Im pretty sure Capcom has realized there's money to be made with the franchise over here (not JP level, release a plushy and it flys off the shelves level of money but money!) so hopefully we get it over here.

    I just jizzed a little bit. Good job Amelia's already pregnant, she's sat on my lap reading this with me, that could have had consequences. People need to think before they post news like this, damn it!

    I really doubt motion controls would suit Monster Hunter... maybe with bows, but it would be troublesome to move the 3DS around all of the time to aim...
