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.
A new trailer for action role-playing game Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate features a cinematic look at the game's battles.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch March 19 for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Demos for both version are available now. Following the game's release, Capcom will patch the Wii U version of the game to unlock cross-region play.
The latest Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate video from Nintendo features game producer Ryozo Tsujimoto demonstrating ways the game can be played on both the Wii U and the 3DS.
In the short video, Tsujimoto shows that the Wii U and 3DS can share the same data saves, which means a player can begin a game on their Wii U and resume it elsewhere on their 3DS. He also runs viewers through local multiplayer, which can be achieved by wirelessly connecting several 3DS handheld consoles with the Wii U.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will release on Wii U and 3DS in March.
