If you've been having doubts about how the Monster Hunter series would translate to Nintendo's Wii console, this new trailer for Monster Hunter 3 will probably change your mind. It's an overused term, but I'd say "awesome" is a good word to describe it.
Monster Hunter 3 is all set for an August 1 launch in Japan. Gamers outside the region will have to wait for an official announcement from Capcom, but they're working on it.
Oh, an aside: I hope the slash axe shows up in the next Monster Hunter Freedom game. It looks pretty damn cool.
