How is Monster Hunter played/going to be played on this?

As I played it on the PSP, the claw technique was used with your hand. How would you do this on the 3DS? Would the Dpad be for movement? This is my biggest factor when it comes to buying a 3DS XL.

On another note, anyone else find it even more ironic that of the next-gen handhelds, Nintendo lacks the 2nd analog pad, but the Vita just introduced a 2nd analog stick? They need to start using common sense, I mean really, there is space for one :i.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Elaborate? As I said, I'm looking to buy, and I don't really know how the things work.

This video should be a better explanation because you can see it in action.

Oh ok. I doubt there is a way to play the 3DS on your TV, by which I mean hook it up with some cables and broadcast the visuals and sound on the TV? I know the PSP can do this, but not sure about this thing.

you can still claw by customizing the upper left corner to be the d-pad
^ it takes a while to get used to if you've been clawing on the psp/vita but once you get used to the placement, its the same thing

that said i prefer buttons instead of touchscreen for camera... but it still works

Handhelds these days, eh?

You don't even need to claw, or use the slide pad attachment.
The camera controls have improved much over the PSP versions that the MH3G plays fine without a second analogue.
You may feel more comfortable with a second analogue (or using the touchscreen to control the camera) during underwater fights though.

And you move with the slidepad. The game has been out since 2011, so there should be more than enough information around.

In past games the L shoulder only reset the camera position behind your hunter. In this game, whenever there's a wyvern onscreen, you can set the L shoulder button to automatically look towards the wyvern.

Christ, why claw when you can just put it near your right thumb so you can move the camera? Hell, I'm perfectly fine with stopping for a sec to orient my camera (shift left thumb from analog to dpad) on the PSP. If you know what you're doing then you know where to stop. Unless you're the type that forgets where something is once it goes off-screen.
