Following up on their promise of more Monster Hunter X information at TGS, CAPCOM has released a new trailer highlighting a range of new and returning gameplay features. The biggest addition this time around is the option to play as a Palico, the feline companions that have been a mainstay of the series, this time dubbed a “Nyanta.” Specific details of this option remain unknown, but it looks incomparably charming and seems to further emphasize the flexibility that this installment embodies.
For the keen-eyed viewer, there are a range of returning monsters that were previously unconfirmed. Monster Hunter X is shaping up to be a broad and varied homage to this long-running series, with a number of maps from previous installments also making an appearance. With the addition of Hunting Styles and Hunters Arts on top of that, there is certainly a lot to be excited about. It’s just a matter of waiting for that Western release confirmation at this point.
