After going on about Monster Hunter Tri-G (or 3G), a gameplay trailer was shown for something that began with just the words "Monster Hunter" running over it. It wasn't additional gameplay from Tri-G, but instead an announcement trailer for Monster Hunter 4.
Monster Hunter may not be that big of a deal in the United States, but it's huge in Japan, so this is a major announcement in the Japanese market. No release date was provided and it wasn't discussed at all, as the trailer closed out the event. But we know it's coming to 3DS; whether it'll also land on Vita or any other system, we don't yet know.
MH4 was easily the biggest news of the show, though Satoru Iwata also shared some information about Tri-G. There wasn't much new about it, but a release date of December 10 in Japan was announced along with a price of 5,800 yen (about $75).
