Monster Hunter X was revealed overnight – in Japanese. Let’s break down what was going on.

We’re sorry to say the undoubtedly hardcore 3DS RPG has not been dated for release outside Japan. We only got Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate in February, four months after its Japanese launch and 17 months after the original’s release, so expect this one to follow pretty slowly behind the Japanese launch in November.
