There's a rumor going on that those weapons above have been removed in MH3. Some blogs and forums are already talking about it. I'm sorry but I couldn't find any official word/source for this info which is why I have stated it as a rumor. The good news is that Gunlance isn't really cancelled, but rather renamed into "Brain Fox". Famitsu magazine has shown the weapons available in MH3 and they are:
1. Tachi 2. Great Sword 3. Slash Axe 4. One handed sword 5. Hammer 6. Lance 7. Bowgun (Light/Heavy) 8. Brain Fox
Again, the new regarding the removed weapons is a rumor until there's word from reliable sources. --- Youtube page: http://jp.youtube.com/profile?user=SoujiSeta2(Jpn games & MH) MonHan PSP GET
Brain Fox won't be in MH3 US. It'll be removed from the game due to licensing issues. --- Not changing this sig until Walter Mondale is elected president. Currently Playing: Pepper II, Venture, Frogger
In the magazine it states there's still going to be subcategories. So gunlance is still in, as a sub to Lance. Where the leaves the rest, though... I have a feeling that considering more weapons are still to be announced, they will replace the like of dual sword with a new weapon; perhaps dual short-axe (a sub to slash axe).
Brain Fox is just my translation. It could be Brain Faux, perhaps. The first word is definitely Brain though due to the magazine's publisher's name, Enterbrain. --- Youtube page: http://jp.youtube.com/profile?user=SoujiSeta2(Jpn games & MH) MonHan PSP GET
