This is even better than Wild Kingdom.
Our own Aaron Kaluszka got some hands-on time with Monster Hunter Tri at Nintendo's recent Media Summit, and he brought along his camera. He was brave enough to get this footage of a monster hunter's exploits in the wilderness!
The first part of his video shows him picking a character and going after some low-level beasties.
The second part shows him harvesting some materials from a downed creature, fighting a larger enemy, and generally running for his life.
Thanks for risking your life for this footage, Aaron!
