I understand very little about the idea of having a China only game, the off continent home of pirating. Monster Hunter must be just as popular in China or else this seems foolhardy. Or maybe I just really want to play Monster Hunter on my PC. Oh if only North America liked Monster Hunter more…

Because sometimes you just don’t have time to fight the same monster fifteen times in a row, hoping he’ll drop some sort of magic frill, here’s the Monster Hunter Shopping Network. Instead of grinding the same monsters over and over, trying to collect enough lizard bones or whatever, just flip on the TV, wait for the item you’re working on to show up, and call ‘em up. Presto. Giant sword headed right for your door, no fuss involved.
Sure, maybe they’ve pretty much sold you this game twice before, and now they’d like to sell it to you two more times (cause what’s the point of even owning a WiiU version without the 3DS version? None. None, I tell you!) but they’ve made some improvements. Like glowing penis head dragon here. That’s worth the price of admission right there.
Unless he was in the last game. I didn’t make it that far, because I’m terrible at Monster Hunting. If he was in the last game, well, disregard everything I’ve said. And let’s just giggle at that dragon. It’s so phallic. He’s a teenage girl in a schoolgirl uniform away from an episode of La Blue Girl. Eww.
So while this is just a rehashed trailer the latest Monster Hunter, it does give us an actual date, March 19th in North America. Why did I make this is a separate post? Because now I only have two weeks between SimCity and Monster Hunter. I’m going to be playing these games so sporadically.
I played the crap out of Monster Hunter Tri on Wii. It wasn’t always easy, but it was a lot of fun, especially that sand ship battle you can play online to make the sweet looking samurai armor. A new one is coming out for the Wii U with compatibility for 3DS if you bought that version. Watch the trailer above to see how you can waste 60 hours again.
Don’t fear. I know you were worried that a 3DS port and a ridiculous Extra analog nub would be the last we would hear about Monster Hunter. But that is not true. Yet another Monster Hunter (Monster Hunter 4 this time) will be released in Japan next year. No word on an American release date. But does it really matter? Look at it. It’s identical to every other Monster Hunter. Kill some annoying bugs, fight some velociraptor looking guys, and eventually stab your way up to fighting giant monsters. Monsters that you will have to fight time and time again to get them to give up their sweet sweet loots. Surely you can just play one of your other Monster Hunters that do the exact same things.
Capcom is opening a bar in Tokyo, and they released some of their food items. Besides this calamari and squid ink pasta dish featuring Phoenix Wright, they have some sort of brain thing for Resident Evil and a well-done steak from Monster Hunter.
I’m just glad they haven’t done anything obviously cheesy tie-in like Blanka Burgers or Mega Man chicken fingers or cheey puns like Bread Rising or Darkstalks of celery. But I like puns. I’m going to make a recipe for Bread Rising. It’ll be the anti-Matzah.

If you’ve been thinking, “Man, that Monster Hunter series was really popular, but I bet Japan’s done with that by now”, well, you’re way off. Why would you even think that? You’re weird. Monster Hunter Tri-G’s 3DS release not only sold a ridiculous number of games, but sold a bunch of 3DS as well. So, apparently it really doesn’t matter what system it’s on, people just need their Monster Hunter, even if it’s a game they almost certainly already own on the Wii.
Obviously, expect to see Monster Hunter on every other struggling system. Monster Hunter 3DO? Monster Hunter Virtual Boy? I’m betting there is no point this wouldn’t work. Let’s release a unique Monster Hunter on the Android, iOS and Windows 7 phones, just so we can see a bunch of dudes in Japan dragging three separate phones around.
The coolest part of this video is that it looks like it could be actual gameplay footage. And this will be arriving on the Nintendo 3DS. The biggest news here is that the 3DS is getting support, especially from a typically PSP product. Nintendo being aggressive here, but I don’t feel like upgrading to the new console because its expensive and has a function I don’t want (it’s the 3D).
