The release date for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has been announced. February 13th, 2015 will be here before we know it but how do you know if you will like the newest addition in the Monster Hunter franchise. Well I have a preview that may help make a decision on trying out this new Monster Hunter game. As of yesterday Jan. 15th, Nintendo has been sending out demo codes for the newest game in the Monster Hunter series. The game is Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and after playing the demo the game is pretty amazing.
Just a little backstory, I have been playing Monster Hunter since it's initial game released back in 2004 on the PS2. Over the years we have seen some great additions to the game franchise from new weapons to new armor sets and the monster list has grown throughout the years as well. Japan has seen more games in the series than the United States because in Japan the following is so much larger than the following stateside. I wish this would change because the game is absolutely amazing. I hope that my preview will entice more people to purchase the game and see what is so amazing about it.
For new hunters I will explain a bit more about armor sets. Each part of the armor will have skill points geared toward different things, i.e. earplugs-for when a monster roars or wind res-for when a flying wyvern flaps their wings. These skills can help out immensely during a fight because it allows the hunter to have an upper hand with skills to fight better through a monster. I prefer mixed armor sets myself because they usually look cooler than a full armor set of one monster and I can customize my skills better. I also will recommend to make multiple sets depending on the monsters you fight.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is not just a single player game where you do solo hunts. There is also online multiplayer so that you can hunt with a group of up to 4 hunters and the quests are much harder online because you can be in larger groups. Online will have low level, high level, and G level quests. G quests are the hardest of the 3 levels and that is where some awesome looking weapons and armor sets can be crafted.
I hope that you have all enjoyed this preview of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and I hope that more people will play it here in the states. It is a lot of fun and enjoyable to play alone and in a group. Now let's get together and go for a hunt!
