A new breed of Monster Hunter is approaching Japan! It's Monster Hunter X, and it is similar to Monster Hunter Stories as it is a spin-off. This one, however, looks to be a much more action-centric than other games in the series. Slash, strike, and shoot monsters both big and small in this intense game. The announcement trailer comes from today's Japan-only Nintendo Direct. Just watching the trailer has me hooked on buying this bad boy if/when it hits our sunny shores.
