Capcom has released some lovely looking screenshots of their upcoming 3DS title, Monster Hunter 4. In them we can see a hunter traverse snowy mountainous tundra, complete with aurora borealis effects.

Two new monsters have been introduced in these screenshots: Arselnus (I can already hear the terrible nicknames) and Skuagil.
