Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate opening cinematic battles monstrous beasties

The Monster Hunter series is about person-sized player characters battling titanic beasts, so the newly-unveiled opening cinematic to Capcom's action game is almost exactly what one might expect.

The video shows off beasts of land, sea and sky attacking adventurers with tooth, claw and fire breath; the hunted don't fall without a fight.

An HD expansion of Wii title Monster Hunter Tri, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate hits 3DS and Wii U on March 19.
