Today is the first public day at the Tokyo Game Show. Meaning? Throngs of people have descended and are lining up to play games. There is one title in particular people want to play, and that is Monster Hunter: World.
Goodness, I know I’ve tried. Since Monster Hunter exploded on the PSP, I’ve always felt that this was a series I should be into. Like, it was a requirement for me as a resident of Japan. But yet, I could never quite get into Monster Hunter.
Typically, when Sony releases themed game hardware, the consoles come out the same day that the games do. That’s not the case for this Monster Hunter World PlayStation 4.
The most worthless 3DS game in the world? Probably Monster Hunter 4, which sold a colossal 4 million copies in Japan, more than almost anything else. Now they can’t give them away; witness a whole pile of minty-fresh copies in this 100-yen (about $1) bin outside the store Surugaya in Akihabara today.
Monster Hunter Stories takes the popular hunting series and mixes it up into an adorable roleplaying game all about hatching cool critters.
Capcom is releasing a highly-detailed, hand-made Felyne.
The only thing more satisfying than a successful Monster Hunter hunt is wearing the armor you made out of the beast you took down. I watched as Monster Hunter World director Yuya Tokuda hunted down a giant beast during a demonstration at E3, and while the weapons and monsters were great, the game’s world was the most…
Big swords. Large monsters. Carving blades. Even bigger swords than those other swords. It can only be one thing: Japan’s mega-popular franchise. It’s Monster Hunter World. Coming in early 2018.
To mark Monster Hunter XX’s Switch version, Capcom is releasing a special MH emblazoned Switch.
Capcom just announced that Monster Hunter XX, originally released on the 3DS as an expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations, will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Monster Hunter XX sold 848,467 copies in its first week on sale on Japan. In comparison, Monster Hunter X sold 1,488,367 copes in its first week in the region, while Monster Hunter 4G sold 1,446,289 copies during its debut week.
XX? Surely, Capcom means XXX.
Out of all the Monster Hunter XX collaborations, this one is the silliest.
Hey, you’ve got some Breath of the Wild in my Monster Hunter XX! The upcoming Capcom title is getting a special in-game crossover with the latest Zelda.
You might know Paul W.S. Anderson as the guy who made the Mortal Kombat movie or the guy who makes the Resident Evil movies. Soon you’ll know him as the guy who makes the Monster Hunter movies.
Capcom announced a new Monster Hunter game. It’s called Monster Hunter XX (as in “double cross”) and has one rather messy looking logo. The game is for the 3DS and will be out March 18, 2017 in Japan. No word yet on an international release.
At the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom producer Ryozo Tsujimoto announced on stage that Hollywood is making a live-action Monster Hunter movie.
Monster Hunter Generations will be out for 3DS on July 15, Capcom said today. There’ll also be a slick Monster Hunter-themed New 3DS XL to go along with it.
It takes a little while for new Monster Hunter games to leave Japan, but Monster Hunter Generations is on the way this summer for 3DS. Nintendo also revealed there will be a Marth costume, and you have save data from the last game, you’ll get some bonuses.
