At the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom producer Ryozo Tsujimoto announced on stage that Hollywood is making a live-action Monster Hunter movie.


Details are currently scant and loads of projects never ultimately get filmed, but according to Tsujimoto, the Monster Hunter movie is progressing through development.

Monster Hunter exhibitions have been shown at Universal Studios Japan, and the games do seem like they could work as a feature film.

No idea as to when we can expect this, but I do know that if the movie ever gets made, we can look forward to loads of big swords and even bigger monsters.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.


If I promise to go see the CGI crapfest, will they promise to release a MonHun game that isn’t on a fucking 240P handheld?
