Monster Hunter X out on 3DS this year in Japan

Capcom has announced the next instalment in the popular Monster Hunter series.

Monster Hunter X (or Monster Hunter Cross, as it seems to also be referred to) is due out this winter in Japan and is a 3DS exclusive.

A Western release has not yet been announced, but an arrival on these shores next year seems possible. While the last game in the series, Monster Hunter 4, took well over a year to land outside of Japan, it was a big hit when it did – Monster Hunter 4: Ultimate has shipped 1m copies in the West and 3m worldwide.

The trailer below seems to show off some new weapons, locations and skills. Take a look:
