To neatly complement this morning's news regarding the European release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, here's a large helping of Monster Hunter 4 goodness in the form of 24 entirely fresh screenshots, issued by those lovely folks at Capcom Japan.

The 3DS exclusive is due to launch in Japan in March next year, with a western release presumably following quite a few months afterwards - Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate comes out in Europe and North America at the same time.

We've included a few of the screens below, but you can check out all 24 here.
