I've lifted my op from the 4U thread on onm and updated it:

Image

Release date - Early 2015
Monster Hunter wiki wrote:Monster Hunter 4 is a new game being produced by Capcom. It is the second game in the Monster Hunter series to be released on the Nintendo 3DS. Details and information about it are currently scarce; only a teaser video and a short trailer have been released by Capcom. These videos both show numerous updates; there is a stronger emphasis on platforming than before, walls can now be climbed more fluidly and in any direction, and for the first time Hunters can grab onto monsters and attack them. Environments shown also appear to be larger than before - possibly even open-world.
Various monsters have been confirmed to return, most notably Rathalos and Tigrex.
Features

- New weapons including the Charge Axe and Insect Glaive - players will begin the game with the Insect Glaive
- New monsters - 24 in total including Kechawacha and Gore Magala
- New areas such as Frozen Sea & Primeval Forest
- No more underwater combat
- Felyne comrades make a return; 2 felynes can be brought along. Felynes can team up to perform combination attacks including the use of a tank like ballista
- Your primary Felyne will also be customisable, including Mario & Luigi costumes
- 4 player wireless local play available, as well as 4 player online play as well and in game text chat
- Bases are now mobile 'caravans'; there is no longer one central village players return to. Instead players will follow their caravan around as it goes from village to village. Each village the caravan visits will have different unique features and facilities not available in other villages.
- The game will feature a 'free camera' and will also include the target lock feature that was introduced in MH3G.
- Capcom aimed to make 4 more appealing to single players, so 4 is more story-oriented than prior MH games, with a larger cast of NPCs than ever before
- Altitude is an important factor when fighting monsters since attack patterns change depending on how far above (or below) they are. Players will be able to attack using their carving knife whilst climbing, as well as being able to attack mid air and jump onto the back of monsters, stabbing them with their carving knife whilst holding down the R button to hold on as the monster tries to shake the hunter off.
- The Dragonship used in Jhen Mohran fight in Tri makes a return against Daren Mohran
- One of the new monsters, Gore Magala, is spreading a virus called the Feral Wyvern Virus that not only enrages infected monsters, but also appears to be able to revive them after they've apparently died.
- The new built-in quest maker feature allows Hunters to explore a new area called the Unknown Forest, then make their adventures into Guild Quests, which can also be shared with friends through StreetPass.

Also just read on the wiki about a new status effect inflicted by Seregios in 4U:
Monster Hunter wiki wrote:The Hunter will take damage when performing certain actions. Running, rolling, and attacking will all cause the affected Hunter to take damage due to bleeding. Hunters won’t take damage when walking. Remedy: Well-Done Steak, Mosswine Jerky, or crouch for awhile.

Great to see we have somewhere to discuss our monsters 8-). Can you do something similar to the Animal Crossing thread: list any member that has a hunter available and possibly their fave weapon in the OP. So that way if you wanted to contact folks to advise you were online and trying to get a hunt group together you can PM from the list etc.

Like this (as an example - I have no clue what others fave weapons are):


Kesskuron - Dual blades
Bix - Gunlance
Rastamau5 - Bowgun

I really hope we get N3DS in time for 4U. Don't think my launch 3DS will last much longer with me playing Smash.

Haven't played 3U regularly since last year, so I forget my exact details for now.
I am the reason, the answer and the problem.

Good to see a MH community on here, hopefully with the new burst of activity we can get some good hunts going. I might try and organise a hunting weekend sometime, hopefully it'll be a bit more successful than the last one I tried to organise. Although with Smash on the way I imagine everyone will be otherwise occupied...

Gonna stick with being a jack-of-all-trades sort of deal, but with a definite bias towards the Charge Blade. Everything about it just looks so good.

From the moment it was shown, the Insect Glaive. I've wanted a staff style weapon since freedom 2 so it got me pretty hyped once I saw it revealed. I mainly use Duel Swords, Long Swords and Lances, but with 4U I'm planning to go full Insect Glaive for the first half of the game. That's how hyped I am.

Pretty much. Such a shame they missed out online on the 3DS version. Suppose it just makes me more excited for 4U's online, though.

In 4U I'm going all out on the bugstaff, everything about it just seems so win. I'll probably try out the charge axe too, and as ever I'll be using Long Swords or Dual Swords as the situation dictates.

I have Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U. I beat Ceadeus and got started on the High Rank quests but I kept dying to the Purple Ludroth and gave up. My playtime was around 60+ hours but I couldn't get good.

I started to find grinding monsters for equipment to be a chore when I killed the Lagiacrus 20 or so times for a full set of armour that wasn't even that great. Might go back to it at some point though.

You can make poison negate armor, i think it was gigginox or that wroggi thing that gave it. Purple Ludroth is pretty quick though. I understand some folks might not want to put in all the practice that this game requires.

Not played in some time but don't waste time trying to farm to many sets in the early game (1 for low rank and 1 for high rank is enough - Wroggi & Rath were what I used) just concentrate on weapon upgrades, monsters don't really hit you hard until you're into g-rank (or the high end 'high rank' village quests).

If something is killing you often, you just need to step back and take your time on your hunt and figure out the attacks a monster will do when you're close/far/front/back/side and most importantly if it does any status damage for you to avoid.

If some guys here have another hunting event and you can pop along, you'll get some nice help/tips (plus loot).

But if you didn't enjoy the 20 kills on Lagi for items I recommend you avoid advancing to the non-story element of g-rank multiplayer. I have some logs of 80+ kills on multiple monsters for some rare pieces...which doesn't sound like you'd enjoy :P Everything before that though is fairly easy and not necessary to grind out.

Almost certain we will be getting MH4 news from the Direct tonight right? Hopefully a release date and a nice N3DS bundle to boot.

I should get the new Monster Hunter when it comes out. Not played properly since Freedom Unite - I had Tri on Wii but couldn't get into it. Felt too weird being on console with decent controls.
