Capcom recently announced two new titles related to the Monster Hunter franchise.
First, we have Monster Hunter X, a new entry in the main series titles.
The game is built on the same engine as Monster Hunter 4 and will feature flashy action that puts the focus on the hunter. Fans of the series can expect new super actions for all weapons, new monsters and more.
Capcom says there will be classes with special attacks that you can activate as a boost to the action. Villages from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations will return. Beruna, which is set at the base of massive mountain range, will be the base village.
Monster Hunter X features four styles of play to choose from. Each style changes the special moves you can perform and puts a focus on the personalization of your hunting style.
The game will offer an increase in actions in both variation and number. The title’s concept is to take the action and make it stylish and varied enough so that everyone can find their own unique way of playing the game.
Capcom is going to include four flagship monsters in Monster Hunter X. In terms of areas, there will be new places to explore and some new monsters are being included in the game as well.
Overall, there will be a total of four main monsters, four villages, and four styles of play.

The game will be developed by From Software and, like Monster Hunter 4, will have special collaboration costumes like Mario and Animal Crossing outfits, for example.
