Plus, details on insect raising and strengthening.

Capcom has updated the official Japanese website for Monster Hunter 4 with a new species of monster and system details.

Generu Serutasu

Generu Serutasu is a large, beetle-type monster. It has no wings and cannot fly on its own. You can use pheromone gas to call the male Aruserutasu. Its hard shell and heavy-weight power makes this rhinoceros beetle tank-like.

Raising Insects

Certain insects can be used as weapons. By strengthening your insect, it will evolve and your weapon will become more advanced.

Strengthening Your Weapons and Evolving Your Insects

As growth points are earned and conditions met, your insect will level up.

    Interesting take on weapons.. :)

    Man, there should be a warning with those screenshots. It looks so horrid. I’m sure it won’t look as bad on an actual 3DS but..

    Is it possible to just lose real time shadows for better textures/geometry or resource budgets don’t go that way?

  • Zancrow

    It’s kind of a shame that this is only on 3DS, because it looks butt-ugly…

    • 罪罰

      It’ll eventually be ported, just be patient.

      • Zancrow

        A port won’t change much.
        A MH exclusive for Vita would be cool, though.

    Oh come on, Capcom. You could’ve made it look as good as Revelations

    • 罪罰

      They don’t really care about the presentation, no matter how many people complain it’ll still sale like hot cakes on day one in Japan so they just focus expanding the mechanics and gameplay.

      • Locksus

        Sure. I don’t personally care much about graphics. The only things I want from a game are great game mechanics, music and art style.
        I’d still want this localized, though.
