Oh snap, son! Monster Hunter 4's new trailer gets intense

I want this game inside of me now!

Dude, I don't you about you, but my urge to hunt monsters has grown beyond the total population on the this planet. Just to get this one out of the way, it looks like MonHun 4 is getting a new giant monster that roams the desert seas -- extreme! And you know that this means, fellow hunters. With MonHun 4's new climbing mechanics, this new battle will easily top the gloriousness found in the Jhen Mohran battle from Monster Hunter Tri and 3 Ultimate, since it has the potential to have some features that are closer to Shadow of the Colossus.

What scares me more about MonHun 4 now is that there's a new feature that allows slain monsters to come back as a stronger darkness breathing form. If my analysis is correct, I am waging that the Goa Magara's dark shockwave attack has a hand in this new occurrence. 

Other than the new hunting goodies revealed, I am also excited that I will get to take my future pet piggy on an adventurous caravan across dangerous lands. Obviously, he won't join me in battle, but he will play the watchful role of guarding the camp while I am busy hunting monsters with my homies.

Hopefully, Capcom will bring this game to the west; however, this will all depend on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate's sales in North America and Europe. Speaking of which, if you already have a 3DS and/or Wii U, go out and check out the demo of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
