If you are into Monster Hunter series, you might know that it is focused on gameplay, but not story. But the upcoming title, dubbed Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, will show us something different. It was also promised by Andrew Alfonso, the localisation director of the game slated for both US and EU releases on February 13, alongside with the New Nintendo 3DS.
People who believe that Monster Hunter doesn't have a story will be pleasantly surprised by MH4U. There's a pretty significant story there!

The story trailer shows us that an unknown virus is making scheme, affecting monsters and turning them berserk. That phenomenon seems to root within a new flagship monster, Gore Magala. This serves as the premise for your hunting journey.
