time of day system, where as time goes by the lighting changes
playable with gamepad,says even with keyboard and mouse you'll still be able to play well
weather changes, some monsters will have different skill sets depending on the weather
sword and shield has a new jumping slash move
greatsword has a new horizontal slash, it's mainly for monster parts that are very tough/hard, maybe has low chance of the sword bouncing
longsword has 2 staged circular slash, wastes a lot of stamina
special move system
after meeting some battle requirements, you can unleash this move
light bowgun's special move is insta-paralyse shot, you fire a shot that sticks on the enemy, and melee attacks needed to detonate the shot for it to activate
longsword's is a jumping downward stab move, but the article says the sword stabs the ground, so maybe there's some aoe effect?
will have battles on transport vehicles, mentions water battles and air battles (battle on airship perhaps?)
unlike MH frontier, this game will have a city/ main hub?
will have plenty of monsters, both from the old and new series, even those from MH frontier
