The monsters of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate: Duramboros

Feb 04, 2013 // Yuri Araujo

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is coming out soon ( NA: March 19th; EU: March 22nd), so we wanted to catch you up on what’s new and exciting about this game. In MH3U, you are the Hunter , but what are you hunting? Monsters , of course! Let’s take a quick look upward and face the mountain-like Brute Wyvern Duramboros.

Official name: Duramboros

Type: Brute Wyvern

Monster Hunter Tri introduced the Brute Wyvern class with monsters like the Barroth, Uragaan and the Deviljho. Now, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate brings subspecies of the old ones as well as a couple of new brute wyverns, such as the Brachydios (next blog) and the Duramboros!

Duramboros’ most distinctive feature is its large hammer-like tail, which is often used to pound the ground and generate small quakes or just smash its foes down. So, while you’ll want to avoid being on Duramboros’ ram-like horns, you’d also want to be wary of its tail.

One thing that is sure to make some of you scratch your heads is how the Duramboros can use its tail as a counter-weight to help it spin on its axis and somehow propel itself upward and drop down, causing earthquakes, damage and even some headaches.

Look forward to that – and some additional variation with the Rust Duramboros subspecies – when Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate hits the stores on March 19 (NA) and 22 (EU). Stay tuned to the Monster Hunter blog for more info; and remember, you can already pre-order your own copy from the Capcom Store as well as an exclusive case for your 3DS or 3DS XL !
