Monster Hunter XX

Some new information about the latest entry in the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter XX, has been revealed via the latest issue of Famitsu. The folks at Gematsu have kindly translated it.

The biggest news is the new Brave Style, a style which focuses on continuous attacks. However, you can only equip one hunter art when using this style. The style’s biggest feature is its Brave State, which you can achieve by filling your Brave Gauge. You can accomplish that by parrying the attacks of monsters. While you are in your Brave State, the Brave Gauge gradually decreases again – however, continuously attacking and parrying will keep it from falling. Brave Style is intended as a “sharper” style which is easy to grasp.

When you’re in the Brave State, your evasiveness with certain weapon types increases and you are able to use powerful link attacks and special techniques. Here are some examples of these special attacks:

  • “Strong Charged Moving Slash” (Great Sword): a charged attack while moving
  • “Step Shot” (Light Bowgun): shoots a special bullet while moving
  • “True Charge” (Hammer): two extra strong charged attacks following the regular charged attack

Another new style is the “Renkin Style”, though there are few details available about it at the moment. Supposedly it is intended for people who want to “vigorously enjoy hunting”.

Some other new details:

  • The Meowstress’ little sister will appear in XX
  • XX’s director is Daisuke Ichihara and the main planner is Takurou Hiraoka; both of them were planners on Generations. Generations’ director, Yasunori Ichinose, oversees the work flow and provides concept supervision for XX
  • Balfark is an ancient dragon type monster that lives at a really high altitude. Both it and Ouma Diablos are connected to the main story
  • Development on the game us currently 70% complete
