Here’s Some Footage From The Monster Hunter X Gameplay Demo

Monster Hunter X will serve as a spinoff for the series, and now a gameplay demo has been made available on the Nintendo eShop. For those of you who would rather just watch gameplay footage rather than play it themselves, I’ve got you covered.

The demo is currently only available on the Japanese eShop, but that hasn’t stopped YouTuber Arekkz Gaming from getting in on the action. The demo allows you to pick from 3 monsters, 3 quests and 14 weapons. In this particular footage Arekkz is battling a┬áHororohoruru (say that 3 times fast).

An interesting fact about this demo is that it is only good for 30 plays, and after that it will be just disappear from your system. Thus, if you want to school the system you should just put your system on standby to avoid your play count from dropping. Hooray for loopholes!

Monster Hunter X will launch exclusively for the 3DS in Japan on November 28th, 2015, a release date has not been announced yet for the USA, but when it does I’ll let you know!

While the commentary is in Japanese, you understand everything that’s going on as it really isn’t all that complex. There’s big ‘ol monsters to be hunted, and you just so happen to be the guy to hunt them. Check out the 25 minute gameplay video below.

Monster Hunter X is launching later this year in Japan exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS, though a western release has not been confirmed at this time.

Monster Hunter X Announced For 3DS

The Monster Hunter series continues to charm both critics and its loyal fanbase, and now just after this year’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate we have the next game in the series.

This one, called Monster Hunter X, is also a 3DS exclusive and will apparently be an attempt to make the series more flashy and bold. Considering how notorious the series is for being punishingly difficult, we could be looking at a slightly simplified presentation, as well.

Not much else is known other than that the game will be launching later this year in Japan, but you can check out the Japanese trailer below.
