Capcom has released a handful of screens for another monster in the upcoming Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for 3DS and Wii U.

Described on Capcom Unity, courtesy of GameInformer, Plesioth is one of a few monsters from the original game and will bring the addition of underwater combat, previously not possible. This addition of underwater battle makes this Piscine Wyvern type monster accessible for attack where previously water was a safe haven for it.

Tail swipes and water jet moves on both land and underwater as well as full speed underwater charging, splash moves and a strong, fast tail slap are all moves we’ll see from Plesioth in battle.

Zinogre was recently annouced for the game, which you can check out here.

Out on 3DS and Wii U on March 31, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will give players the option to play the same save file between both consoles.
