Monster Hunter 4 N3DS trailer

Teaser for Monster Hunter 4, an upcoming video game by Capcom, exclusive on Nintendo 3DS. Release date TBD, probably late 2012 or in 2013.

Monster Hunter is a series of fantasy-themed action role-playing video games that started in 2004. The franchise is pretty popular in Japan, with about 15 million copies sold to date.

Worldwide sales are much lower though. One of the major reasons is because handheld consoles are mainly a Japanese thing. And the game is also infamous for having a high learning curve which is obviously not a global norm.

As usual for popular games, the franchise expanded into anime and manga too. AFAIK the branching doesn’t work out that well though.
