Nintendo has announced that a Direct is scheduled for October 8, starting at 8pm JST.

This Direct will be focused on Monster Hunter 4G which launches for Japan this weekend and will releases for North America and Europe as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sometime in 2015.

You can watch the Direct here. We’ll also embed a stream on the site if possible.

Capcom has gone ahead and opened the official Japanese website for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, or Monster Hunter 4G. Access it here. The site houses Ultimate’s debut teaser, but that’s mostly it for now.

After announcing Monster Hunter 4G for Japan earlier today, Capcom followed up with a confirmation for the west. Indeed: Monster Hunter 4G will be arriving in North America and Europe in early 2015 as “Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate”.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is said to be “built on the foundations of Monster Hunter 4 but have way more content.” “In typical Monster Hunter fashion, you can expect to see a number of returning older monsters, but also a great selection of new threats to challenge you in unique ways,” Capcom teased.
