Here is what I have been able to find so far

  • Actual some sort of story
    The single player moves towns
  • No water fights but we get bugs
  • Fights now have a focus on "Height", each weapon has a jump attack and you can ride a Monster which is required for certain breaks
  • No Charm Tables(Not positive but I hope its true)
  • Bug Staff upgrades independently (Bug and Staff are their own thing)
  • Siege mode is back for Gunners
  • Online mode for 3DS

Weapons also received a move or two beyond from the jump attack(not all but most) and some number changes

  • Sword and Shield has a jump back parry
  • Sword and Shield has less high elemental damage and more raw damage
  • Hammer has no change in Attacks
  • Long sword less focused on Spirit Attack
  • Long Sword has an attack once you jump back to move right back in

sounds like the best handheld game of all time to me! ;)
though I started liking underwater battles lately(discovered the usefulness of bounce bombs underwater)
I've already decided my main weapon will be the insect staff just because it is awesome!(though I'll end like in MH3U having at least 2 weapons of each type, though I have 3-9 of each except hammers and hunting horns)

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

MH4 is going to be super fun. Only thing I'll be a bit upset about is having to go through all the grinding again. :( However, at least it has online play so hopefully it won't be as annoying grinding the tougher monsters, especially on G Rank. D:

But I'm really thankful there's no underwater battles, good riddance. That is a super pain in the neck, its just not fun and incredibly slow. It also means no Plesioth, the worst underwater monster to have ever been created.

But yeah, really looking forward to this game, hopefully it'll come out this year or early next year. Please, please, please.

except plesioth has been around since BEFORE the underwater battles existed(but you're right in the part it has been removed from MH4)

Happy dreams ruined. :( Why did Capcom make that chicken legged, water shooting, floppy thing... its beyond irritating, on both land and sea.

Is Plesioth actually in it, though? The Wiki says he's in a Mini-game/cameo, but doesn't say he's actually in the game.

He is an annoying bugger thats for sure, luckily has little to no health but he is very annoying.

Does anyone know what changes where made to switch axe and Gunlance ? Can't seem to find some good gameplay showing off the changes(they are my favorite weps)

According to the almighty Monster Hunter Wiki:

Nothing on the SwitchAxe, though...

I'm actually glad underwater has been removed, I didn't like it all that much...especially in the Flooded Forest. As for Plesioth, I found him more easy to fight underwater...ironically, than on land. xD Still annoying though, stupid walking fish wouldn't make up its mind.

I'm just glad I'll be able to take on some monsters that I missed out on in past generations, and this..."Custom Quest" feature seems interesting.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

On the Custom Question I dug this up, its also worth noting there is a procedural generated zone called the unknown forest .

  • Game has a built-in quest maker
  • Players can use a search feature when hunting alone and exploring the Unknown Forest
  • This makes the game create a random quest by selecting monsters, the field area, and material points
  • Clear the quest and it will become a Guild Quest
  • This means you can share it with other players and complete it together
  • Register up to 10 Guild Quest types and exchange them through StreetPass
  • Each time you clear a Guild Quest it levels up
  • This increases its difficulty and the quality of items you can earn
  • These kinds of quests have a new equipment you can collect called Excavation Equipment
  • Parameters and designs for Excavation Equipment is different than you will find in regular quests
  • Can only collect Excavation Equipment from the Sea of Trees
  • Sounds like some monsters can only be seen in these extra quests

Online multiplayer? No water battles?

If this comes to NA, I'm definitely buying it.

Same. I might not use the online battles, but they're nice to have. The removal of underwater battles is a Godsend, though. Those quests were always stopping points for me...

Why the heck isn't this game getting localized? This has "money maker" written all over it.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D

My theory is that the West never gets the first version of a new generation and that a console version is needed to really take off since the way we play is different.

But to really rub salt into the wound, this is coming out before a localized version

Monster Hunter isn't as popular or well known over here like it is in Japan. That said, it is coming eventually. I even started to doubt 3G's localization and then out of nowhere they throw it at us, lol. So MH4 is coming, we just gotta know when. :p

Actually...we got Ultimate, not 3G. And Only because of the Wii U version, and probably because of Nintendo's meddling.

Yeah I doubt it, Capcom themselves said they didn't want to give up on Monster Hunter in the West. The main reason why they moved to Nintendo, because they support on localizing the game. And yeah....3G = Ultimate.

Hm, I had read numerous reports that Ultimate was a different game, but now everything's saying they're the same...I don't know what to trust. I thought Ultimate had stuff that wasn't in 3G?
