Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate monsters: Arzuros; Shakalaka Christmas Special video

Arzuros is a Fang Beast-type monster that likes honey.

Capcom has released a new monster profile, video, and screenshots for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, coming to Wii U and 3DS in March 2013.

The monster profile, posted on Capcom Unity, details the Fanged Beast Arzuros.

Arzuros (Fanged Beast-type)

Arzuros is a big blue bear that likes honey… sounds like a cartoon character so far, but don’t be fooled; this Fanged Beast (new monster class, btw) is certainly not here to hug you. In fact, it might try to grab you and shake you up a bit – this actually happens – looking to steal honey or cause some pain!

Despite looking big and heavy, Arzuros can close up distances pretty well with its run; and if you don’t watch out it’ll slap you around with its sharp-clawed, spiky arms in multiple swipe attacks. It’s best to dodge and stay away…

But don’t get too scared already. You’ll get to fight the Arzuros early enough in the game that you should be able to keep up. If it gives you a hard time, though, don’t get discouraged; it’s part of becoming a great hunter.

The screenshots show Arzuros, among other beasts. View them at the gallery. The video, “Cha-Cha & Kayamba’s Shakalaka Christmas Special,” can be seen below.
