Players will get to start their newest hunt soon, as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate releases in less than a month

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

If the February 13th confirmation of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate wasn’t enough to get fans going, CAPCOM has one more surprise in store; a special Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate New 3DS XL complete with MH4U pre-installed.

Although a New Nintendo 3DS system is not necessary, CAPCOM boasts superior capabilities for MH4U on the newer model. By playing on a New 3DS, players will be able to enjoy additional features such as enhanced graphics, complete C-stick functionality, and the ability to customize the ZL and ZR buttons to their liking.

CAPCOM will soon be giving select 3DS players a demo copy of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The demo will contain both single-player, and multiplayer capabilities.

Check out the latest trailer for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate below.


Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
