BEHOLD THE MIGHTY CHARGE AXE!

Capcom has uploaded a fresh trailer for Monster Hunter 4, so that is a thing that you can watch. It's got hunters. It's got monsters. It's got hunters hunting monsters. It's got everything.

Poor excuses for jokes aside, the coolest part about this footage is that it shows off one of the newest weapons to the series: the Charge Axe. Somewhat similar to the Switch Axe introduced in Monster Hunter 3, the Charge Axe can alternate between axe mode and sword mode. While in sword mode, the axe "blade" is detached and used as a shield. In action, it looks pretty badass.

MH4 is still on track for a summer 2013 release in Japan. We'll get our turn eventually.
