CAPCOM announced on Thursday that it will release a special-edition Monster Hunter X New Nintendo 3DS LL (called XL in the West) bundle on November 28, the same day Monster Hunter X ships in Japan.

The New Nintendo 3DS LL included in the bundle will have a red finish with the Monster Hunter X (pronounced Cross) logo centered on the lid. Sketches of the game's four main monster types (Leviathans, Fanged Beasts, Flying Wyverns, and Brute Wyverns), which CAPCOM has featured in previous games in the series, surround the logo.

The bundle will cost 26,000 yen (about US$209) and will include a copy of Monster Hunter X, as well as a touch pen, a 4GB memory card, and six AR cards.

CAPCOM also began streaming two weapon introduction videos on Saturday for long swords and great swords. The videos feature guild and aerial fighting styles for both weapons, and also features each weapon class's Hunting Art.

The game will feature Shuryō Style (Hunting Style) movesets, which will allow players to tailor their style of hunting to their preference. The game also contains 14 weapon types, each of which will feature a Kariwaza (Hunting Art), which can be high-damage moves or effects that boost players' capabilities.

CAPCOM will release the game in Japan on November 28 on the Nintendo 3DS.

CAPCOM also revealed in June that the MonHun Nikki Pokapoka Airū-mura DX (pronounced Deluxe) Nintendo 3DS game will ship on September 10 in Japan. CAPCOM is also developing the Monster Hunter Stories Nintendo 3DS game for 2016. The game is the first RPG in the Monster Hunter franchise.
