New hunting methods!

Monsters on the march!
A variety of giant monsters await all those hunters brave enough to face them, from terrifying new enemies like Magnamalo to well-known and beloved monsters like Tigrex and Mizutsune. These are just a few of the beasts you will encounter in the wild.
Badly prepared hunters have no chance against these powerful creatures. Pay close attention to the behavior and attack patterns of your prey to determine the best time to attack - or to flee! - to find. If there is another monster nearby, lure them in and engage them in battle to give you an advantage!
The greater the danger, the better equipped you should be. Create new weapons and armor from your loot and parts of killed monsters. Also, make sure you have enough remedies, traps, and other essential hunting supplies with you before you set off!
To the weapons!
Gigantic blades, pointed lances, massive hammers, bow guns for long-range combat and more with a selection of 14 unique weapons you will find the equipment that suits your hunting style!!
Each weapon is operated differently and has its own strengths. So it's worth taking the time to master them! Experiment with them to find the perfect weapon for your hunting style.
The last line of defense
To protect their village from monster attacks, the residents of Kamura have built a fortress.
