Took you long enough, Capcom. We finally got confirmation that the upcoming updated version of Monster Hunter 4 for the Nintendo 3DS (Monster Hunter 4G in Japan) will be released to the West as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The original iteration of the game, Monster Hunter 4, was released in Japan on September 14, 2013, to much acclaim and success. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will build upon the changes already established in MH4, which has more fluid 3-dimensional combat (you can climb and attack from walls and ceilings), new weapons, a new Guild Quest system, and, of course, new monsters to hunt. Monster Hunter 4 also has online multiplayer along with local play and Streetpass functionality.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is set to be released in the US and Europe in early 2015. I got my fingers across for a Wii U port, akin to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Maybe that can help out the struggling console.
