Info from the Latest Famitsu Scans via BannedLagiacrus
Hidden Haze Malfestio *This Malfestio is able to turn invisible, allowing it to sneak up on foes easily. *Much like Chameleos and Gypceros, Hidden Haze Malfestio is well known for stealing items from hunters. *It is said that it loves to steal healing items, such as Potions and Energy Drinks.
Massacre Demon Diablos *Though it has a Rage Mode, Massacre Demon Diablos actually has a second Rage Mode. *This state can be called the Massacre Charging State (Japanese 狂暴走状態).
Nerscylla and Gravios *Nerscylla and Gravios are confirmed for MHXX! They aren’t much different from what we remembered in previous games. *Basarios is likely back too since its icon appears on one of the cases for MHXX.
Hunter Arts *Great Sword - Moon Breaker (Japanese ムーンブレイク): A powerful attack that sends the hunter spinning in the air with the Great Sword, in a moon crescent like shape, and performing a deadly slash. *Long Sword - Devil’s Blade (Japanese 妖刀羅刹): The Long Sword gains an attack buff at the cost of a hunter’s health constantly decreasing. If the hunter hits a target, they’ll regain their health with each attack. *Sword and Shield - Blade Oil Chaos (Japanese 混沌の刃薬): Puts all Blade Oil types on Sword and Shield at once. Even with this art, you can still add more blade oil on the weapon. *Dual Blades - Rasenzan (Japanese ラセンザン): A special leaping strike combo that can deal more damage than usual if a hunter aims for the weakspot of a monster. *Hammer - Impact’s Pulse (Japanese インパクトプルス): A special art that surrounds the hammer in a glow. This art increases the range of the hammers impact with each attack. *Hunting Horn - High Animato (Japanese アニマートハイ): This art allows for the Hunting Horn to play songs by just evading attacks, even evading in the middle of melodies for buffs. *Lance - Healing Guard (Japanese 治癒の盾): An AoE healing art. While guarding with the weapon, hunters will heal themselves and fellow teammates in an area as they do so. *Gunlance - AA Flare (Japanese AAフレア): A Hunter Art that specializes in knocking monsters out of the air. Hunters will fire of their shots in the air before performing a powerful wyvernfire in the air. *Switch Axe - Tempest Axe (Japanese テンペストアクス): This art strengthens the Switch Axe’s Axe Mode and makes the attacks in this mode quicker. This art also grants the Axe Mode some new attacks as well. *Charge Blade - Chain Saucer (Japanese チェインソーサー): A Charge Blade art that fills up the phials for the weapon. *Insect Glaive - Bug Senses Intensification (Japanese 覚蟲強化): The art increases the mobility of Kinsects, but also increases the amount of stamina they use. *Bow - Strength of an Anchor (Japanese 身躱し射法): Allows for hunters to fire arrows at a monster as they evade backwards. *Light Bowgun - Charge Shot (Japanese チャージショット): This hunter art allows for hunters to fire all LV1 shots in a powerful single shot. *Heavy Bowgun - Heavy Slicing Shots (Japanese 射突型裂孔弾): These are more powerful versions of the Slicing Shots. These shots can cut off parts much more easily, compared to normal ones, due to their specially customized shells.
Prowlers *Prowlers have a new skill that allows them to use a Farcaster. *Prowlers have a new skill that allows them to burrow underground and perform a surprise attack with their weapon. *These cats can place down cannons and fire themselves from them in order to attack monsters. *This gives them a chance to deal mounting damage to the monster. *Prowlers have a new skill that allows them to roll objects at foes, dealing impact damage. *Support Prowlers have a horn that activates the SP State for a skill now. *Prowlers can now set a Healing Fountain down. *These support cats have a special skill that grants fellow teammates many resistances to certain statuses, such as Stun.
