Good news, monster hunters. Over the weekend, Capcom confirmed that Monster Hunter 4G for 3DS will be released in the West early next year as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.

So, you've got a pretty long wait until you can get your hands on the follow-up to last year's Bronze Award-winning hunt-'em-up Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

But, hey - at least we know it's definitely heading our way.

If you're not familiar with the series, it's a hardcore multiplayer RPG in which you team up with some friends to whomp enormous monsters with ridiculous swords.

You can check out the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate announcement trailer below.
