If, like us, you were wowed by the Monster Hunter 4 video Capcom revealed back in September but thought "that can't possibly be accurate" — apparently it can.
A recent Iwata Asks interview (via Andriasang) reveals that not only was it real-time footage of the upcoming 3DS game, it was actually played by Capcom staff members.
The initial footage was thought to be more concept than concrete, but now we know it was actually playable. Check out the trailer for yourself below and imagine playing it in 3D sometime.
Um... what? I never even thought of that. Wasn't going to buy a MH game after getting the Tri on Wii but I may still change my mind.
in your face zezzy! i was right, it was all real
I still only want an online monster hunter and nothing else, impressive as this may seem. After tri's multiplayer experience I can't help but feel empty hunting alone.
Here's hoping the wiiU version will rock in the online department.
Looking pretty good.
Amazing. This and 3G need to come out in America like now.
God I hope that was like a one time section early in the game. If they try to seriously throw platforming garbage into Monster Hunter I will be raged......
You should try getting XLink Kai for your 3DS then
Just bring me some Tri G to hold me over please =)
That was playable?!!! Holy... Shhhnikes!
This may be a stupid question, but is there also going to be a Wii U version? Has such been announced?
Holy wow. Was it played on a 3ds though?
@linkdeku7 Capcom's not mentioned anything about Wii U yet, so the answer is "we don't know".
@Lan Was probably played on a developer PC but not sure if that makes any real difference in the long run
Ugh it's nice and all but....
The first time I saw the Kid Icarus trailer I was so excited somebody actually made a Wii game that looked good. (Yes I know it is' ta Wii game bu that's what I thought when I first saw it) This looks even better than that. MHtri is the only MH game I've played (finally beat that stupid bird) but this looks better than that. No way my guy could run that fast, jump that high,or climb shear walls.
No. Guess MH will now turn into a running cinematic game. I blame the 3DS.
"Run and hide from monsters, this time with flashy camera angles and THREE DEEE!"
No crap... why do people doubt
They probably added the flashy camera angles later to make it more movie like, I doubt Capcom would kill the series using unpredictable camera angles.
Well, I never thought this looked very well if it were pre-calculated stuff. But if this is actually the gameplay-engine without enhancements it looks ok for being on the 3DS.
@zezzy: You ever have seen a MH cinematic sequence without the hunters running from the monsters...? This movie may feature the ingame gameplay, but it doesnt necessarily mean you have to play like the dude did.
@Traxx: Not in real-time. Or especially during gameplay trailers ;___;
Although its real time footage, it's still a trailer, hence all the camera angles and the player doing his thing there. We don't know yet what we are actually supposed to do in this environment. Maybe escaping, maybe just the opposite: following the monster to its hidden lair.
Take that, zez!
@others zez is just looking for faults in the game, don't listen to him
zez just wants a good game
I was thinking it could definitely be possible just not sure what would make it into the final game and how it's going to turn out.
Oh...my...god... I can't wait to see more of this beautiful footage! Take that HD Fanboys!
