Last week we have reported that a new Monster Hunter series special event was going to be aired later this week on Nico Nico. This event, which was also going to feature new gameplay footage of Monster Hunter X, the new entry of the series currently in development for Nintendo 3DS, and a new announcement related to series. Unfortunately, the event has been postponed to a yet to be confirmed date.
No reason has been stated for the postponement of the Monster Hunter Summer 2015 Special event but some are speculating that the sudden passing of Nintendo’s CEO Satoru Iwata might be one of the reasons for the postponement.
Earlier this month European and North American Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate players have been able to enjoy a new batch of free DLC packs. This month’s batch includes cross-over content from Universal Studios Japan, new quests given by characters taken from previous entries of the series and some powerful new items. A trailer has also been made available, showcasing the new content created for the game.
As stated above, the next main entry of the series currently in development for Nintendo 3DS is Monster Hunter X. The new entry of the series will retain some of the series staples as well as include some brand new features that will make it feel different from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and the other previous entries such as new super actions, new weapons, new special moves and much more.
