Monster Hunter 4 is the focus of next week's Nintendo Direct

Nintendo is turning its focus to its upcoming release Monster Hunter 4 during next week's Nintendo Direct on Sept. 8.

The conference is set to air this coming Sunday at 7 a.m. EST, roughly a week shy of its Sept. 14 release date in Japan. The game has already been reviewed by Famitsu with a score of 38 out of 40, excerpts of these reviews you can read right here.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has previously pegged hopes of a rise in the company's international performance on titles including Monster Hunter 4 and Pokemon X and Y. According to Iwata, games that performed well in Japan were not released last year in North America, causing a problem where hardware and software sales failed to drive one another.

No release date for Monster Hunter 4 has been revealed as of yet.
