Now just over a month away, Monster Hunter Generations looms large as a significant 3DS release this summer. With the localised version getting closer Capcom is doing its part to get Western gamers geared up for the latest series entry.

The official Monster Hunter YouTube channel has posted a neat video that shows off one of the four 'flagship' monsters - the Astalos. It's a hefty creature, of course, but you can see a successful hunt of it below. The video is also well worth a watch as it shows how different weapons, hunter styles and arts come together to give more flexibility in how you approach a hunt.

The game's official Instagram page has also shared an image of the rather neat armour that can be created from hunting Astalos.
