Capcom has released the introductory cutscene to upcoming 3DS hack & slash RPG Monster Hunter 3G, wherein you can enjoy some nicely rendered beasties, underwater environments and visceral combat. It's a CG video - so no gameplay footage, I'm afraid. Just a little visual treat for your Wednesday afternoon.
It's impressive, though, and hopefully the varied action and addictive character creation will make up for the inexplicable lack of online play when Monster Hunter 3G releases next year. Current projections place it for an autumn 2012 launch window.
