It looks like Monster Hunter X will feature new monsters, new actions and attacks, and will take place across several towns and locations that seem familiar from previous Monster Hunter games.

Monster Hunter X is set to launch winter 2015.

Combined with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Japanese counterpart , Monster Hunter 4G, sales of that game had already eclipsed 3 million units as of February.
