Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate gameplay trailer pits player against the furry yet deadly Lagombi

Don't let Lagombi's looks fool you. He might look cute and cuddly, but this quick enemy will hurl ice chunks at your head sooner than you can blink. His quick charges are good gap closers, meaning he can easily reach you in a single leap, despite how far you are from him. Remember, it's always encouraged to bring a friend!

The Monster Hunter series, though not as mainstream here as it is in Japan, is finally picking up steam in the US. Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii was certainly a step in the right direction for the series, not to mention the game was a lot more playable with the Classic Controller's dual analog stick set up.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be the Wii U's first Monster Hunter game, and from what we've seen so far, it looks absolutely phenomenal. Also, great news, it's already confirmed to make it to the US in March of next year!
