Terrain is much more vertical than before – assault your enemy from above, and deliver a flurry of blows while holding on for dear life!
Hunting solo might be the epitome of courage, but the online Monster Hunter experience opens up a world of strategic teamwork, where seasoned Hunters work as a well-oiled machine to stalk, engage and vanquish their foes. Hunt with nearby friends using Local Play, or for the first time on handheld, take the chase online directly via Nintendo Network, to play with faraway fellow hunters!
Make no mistake – Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is a strategic, expansive and epic action RPG just waiting to be discovered. Glory awaits!
