Capcom Shows Off Two New Weapons in Monster Hunter X

Monster Hunter X is upon us, people. That may not seem like a big deal to many of you, but let’s call you “the uninitiated.” Capcom has just shown off trailers highlighting the one-handed sword and the dual swords in the game.

Personally, I’d lean toward those dual swords. They’ve got a quick movement to them and a touch of finesse that I can always get behind. You can soar and twirl at monsters to dispatch them, stringing lightning-fast combos together. They’re probably lower damage than the one-handed sword-and-shield combo, but the latter looks pretty slow and beefy by comparison. But of course, it’s up to you which you’ll pick.

Monster Hunter X releases on November 28 in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS. No word on when it’ll see a release elsewhere.
