Monster Hunter X (Cross) is only around a month away in Japan, which means those of us in the West can start getting jealous right about now. This new title will include a number of familiar elements from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, but will have plenty of different monsters, attack styles and new twists on various mechanics.

It's shaping up rather well, and with the release date so close plenty of information is coming out. Naturally Famitsu magazine has various scoops, and the most recent issue has a 10-page feature that covers important monsters, modes, mechanics and tweaks to how Palicoes work. The rather excellent gaijin hunter YouTube channel has once again produced an informative and detailed tour of the magazine's digital edition, which is well worth a watch for anyone interested in the game.
