Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate launches next Tuesday, and while this week is still young, Capcom decided it'd be a good time to tease the hell out of Monster Hunter fans. Thus, we have two videos. One is the opening intro, and the other, a montage of monsters.
The intro cinematic, whether you're into Monster Hunter or not, is pretty great to watch. Heck, I'm not a diehard fan, and even I want to play this game all of a sudden just from watching the opening. Thar be dragons, just waiting for adventurers to come along. Dig the big guy at the end there, too.

The game is actually an expansion for Monster Hunter 3 on the Wii, and boasts some upscaled graphics and a 1080p resolution. Japan already has a 3DS port titled Monster Hunter 3G, but that version definitely didn't get the visual makeover.
At any rate, here's the second trailer: a compilation of footage from the game. Monsters everywhere!

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released to Wii U and 3DS on March 19. If you're in Europe, the wait is longer by three days.
