Do you like monsters? Do you like hunting? Do you like the number '4'? Well, then, gosh darn do I have the game for you.

Its name is Monster Hunter 4, and it's heading to Nintendo 3DS in the US and Europe next year.

If you're unfamiliar with the series, these are hardcore multiplayer RPGs that have you teaming up with pals to wallop big monsters with big swords.

The fourth game lets you grapple onto monsters, Shadow of the Colossus style, and attack them from mid-air.

I didn't get to do that in my hands-on with the game, which you can check out above. But you will get to bear witness to those gorgeous new graphics, and get an idea of how this hotly anticipated sequel works.
