  1. Tokyo Game Show (TGS) is underway this week in Japan, and last night Sony held their annual pre-TGS press conference to showcase new games and other announcements. While there were a host of new games announced, one very big piece of news was also revealed: Monster Hunter: World's release date. Capcom mentioned the game would be releasing sooner than most people probably realized: January 26, 2018. This effectively makes it the first big AAA game release of 2018, and is also sure to make Monster Hunter fans pretty happy to boot. Also announced were Digital Deluxe and physical Collector's Edition versions of the game alongside the standard version; pre-orders for all three start today. The Digital Deluxe Edition includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter. As for the North American version of the physical Collector's Edition, it includes a physical copy of the game, voucher for the additional customizable options from the Digital Deluxe Edition (a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter), a 32 page hardcover art book, high-quality flagship monster statue, and digital soundtrack code, all for $149.99. Capcom also released a new trailer for the game, which can be seen below. Monster Hunter: World kicks off the hunt globally on January 26, 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC version to follow sometime after.

  2. Today Capcom finally announced the release date for Monster Hunter Generations (known as Monster Hunter X in Japan), which will be July 15, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Also coming on the same day is a special Monster Hunter Generations New Nintendo 3DS, which comes in a blue hue and features artwork of the Fated Four -- a new group of elite monsters that players will be facing in the game. Unfortunately, the special edition Monster Hunter Generations New 3DS will not come bundled with the game. Although the game is compatible with the complete 3DS family of systems, it really sounds like Capcom is pushing the New 3DS as the best way to play it, especially considering the improved visuals, ZL and ZR buttons that are completely mappable, and the added camera fluidity that the C-stick provides. New additions to Monster Hunter Generations include four unique hunting styles, different Hunter Arts you can equip, more than 20 different hunting locations, and more. Also, a demo will be released at some point before the game's release, though the time and date for that will be revealed sometime later. You can check out one of the latest trailers for the game below. Source: Press Release Are you excited for Monster Hunter Generations?
  3. So I“ve never really enjoyed a Monster Hunter game before. To be honest I“m not sure I really enjoy Monster Hunter now, but I get it. They won. I“m a fan. But being the extreme nublet that I am the game presents quite a bit of challenge. These are the chronicles of a know-nothing fledgling hunter, trying to die as little as humanly possible. I guess I should start off by saying that in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate I use the Hunting Horn. If you were picturing something supremely intimidating, like a gigantic horn that I strap to my head to ram enemies and disembowel them with my gargantuan neck muscles…well, sorry but that“s pretty much the furthest thing from the truth. Though I have been told I have a strong neck. What a Hunting Horn really is, is one part didgeridoo, one part club, that you effectively whack all the scary monsters on the head with in order to make a cool sound. Basically I“m like El Kabong…only not a horse (but how cool would that be right?). Point is, whenever I“m out there fighting things I“m doing so with a musical instrument. I“m bringing a flute to a gunfight. So keep that in mind because that makes literally everything I do in Monster Hunter at least 10x more hilarious. So I“ve been playing awhile and I managed to fight my way through some pretty scary bad guys. One was literally a bunch of angry rocks with a face. That was a fun day! But no matter what, I“ve always been able to take them down by smashing my Rickenbacker into their faces like I“m Robert Daltrey. That is until last night. Armed with my trusty wind instrument of death, I walked into the frozen wasteland of someplace (I“m sure it has a name, I just don“t know it) and gazed upon…. Jabberjaw? Not unlike that frankly awful cartoon, was walking shark. Only it was pretty strong looking, so I guess that makes it more like a Street Shark? Well dated references aside it was pretty mean, pretty ugly, and also very sharky. So I held my mighty Hunting Horn aloft and cried “Shark Week is over, bitch!” and charged. Ok, so I didn“t but I really should have. Next time, promise. So I“m bobbing and weaving, dodging, trying to observe this thing in order to find which place would be best to hit it with my noise-hammer. Well…that doesn“t go so well. So I“m hitting it and it just bounces off half the time. You see, it has armor. Armor made of ice. Yup. Who does that? This guy I guess. So I make the best of a bad situation and after having some luck attacking his tail (which is horizontal and not vertical, I mean I“m no marine biologist here but I“m pretty sure that“s totally wrong guys!) when he dives under the sea…of ice. Yup. He“s swimming in ice. Thank you for that, Capcom. So obviously some Jaws shenanigans are about to take place. Even I can see where this is going. It“s time to change strategies. I fall back on one that has never failed me before. The elite hunter maneuver known as “running in a circle”. Well it works and pops back up, this time without his ice amor. Oh yeah. It“s time to go to town! Oh, except he learned a new trick. He can barf this ice laser and freeze stuff. He“s shooping da woop. This is happening. So needless to say I“m running around half frozen and shouting things that frankly I should be thrown in jail for. I mean a walking shark just hurled projectile ice vomit on me. I“m pretty sure it can“t get any weirder. You know it got weirder right? Of course it did. This is Monster Hunter, a game where you can sharpen your hammer to deal more damage. Anyways, the angry shark dude becomes a big fat amorphous shark-ball. I really don“t even know how to describe it. I don“t think it“s something you can describe except that it once was a shark, and it is totally rolling towards me like Violet Beauregarde, just less purple-y. Oh and it bounces too...gross. The good news is it“s soft. Hitting soft things in Monster Hunter is always the way to win. So I go to town. It“s still gross but now I can kill it. Hell, I want to kill it even more now because it looks like Honey Boo-boo“s mom“s neck sewed onto a great white shark. Pure nightmare fuel. So after bashing it repeatedly and without hesitation, it dies! After a quick sigh of relief I“m carving bits off one of the weirdest monsters I“ve ever fought in a video game. Like ever. And I“ve played some super weird games, trust me. I mean Soul Sacrifice is basically the creepy brain love child of H.P. Lovecraft and whoever designed Slimer from Ghostbusters. That game has a monster made entirely out of food garbage. Sure it“s a dumpster diver“s worst nightmare, but at least that thing didn“t have three forms, each making even less sense than the last! So why now, after multiple prior attempts, am I a fan of Monster Hunter? It would be the exact moment when I was standing over a deflated shark balloon, doing a fist pump in time with my hunter (yes, you can fist pump in Monster Hunter, please use responsibly) and quite possibly seconds away from doing the futterwacken. And that, dear readers, is the image I want to leave you with!
  4. In the realm of the completely unexpected, a new localization announcement appears! Final Fantasy Explorers, the blend of Monster Hunter and Final Fantasy, is coming West early next year! It“ll hit the United States on January 26th, 2016, then Europe on January 29th, 2016. Square-Enix have remained utterly silent regarding the game“s fate outside of Japan until now. Reception had been mild, and there was certainly nothing at E3. Seems “never say never” is indeed a sentiment that can be embraced when it comes to Square-Enix. The game“s story details a world on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals. Players (in co-operative, Monster Hunter-styled gameplay unique to the series, so far) have to band together in search of crystals, defeating monsters and hopefully discovering the Grand Crystal along the way. And hey, if the announcement trailer below isn“t enough for you, I actually spoke at length about the Japanese demo of the game a long way back. Will you be giving Final Fantasy Explorers a try next year? Be sure to let us know!
  5. My best friend is as into the Monster Hunter series as I am into Pokémon. She's tried very hard to get me into the series, including taking me to a Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate event hosted by Nintendo of Australia when I went (a long way) to visit her at the end of January. Still, as much as I've tried to get into Monster Hunter, many things about it just aren't for me. It seems Capcom has heard from a lot of people like me, and perhaps wants to do something a little different to mix up the Monster Hunter formula for old fans while reeling in potential new ones. Monster Hunter Stories is officially a thing, an RPG spin-off coming to the Nintendo 3DS in 2016. The trailer, seen below, shows off a Hunter and his palico companion. They're after an egg, and...well...things go amiss. These visuals are unlike anything seen in the series so far, with a cell-shaded look and cartoonish appeal that would make most immediately think of Wind Waker. Since this game was just revealed, there's very little information to go on. Still, there's the official website. And I'll be sure to update you with more information (and hopefully a localization announcement) as it comes. This is definitely the kind of experience I can get into! Are you on the fence like me about Monster Hunter as a series? Does an experience like this interest you? How does seeing this make you veteran hunters feel? Be sure to let us know!
  6. If you're a Monster Hunter fan, then you'll definitely want this fantastic collector's edition for Monster Hunter 4 announced for North America. Here is what is included: 3.5" translucent Gore Magala figure (design not final) Felyne (wearing Gore Magala armor) pin Monster icon lanyard Microfiber cleaning cloth (design not final) Supply item box packaging A copy of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for 3DS The collector's edition costs $60 and can be pre-ordered at GameStop (information on other participating retailers is coming soon). Capcom says quantites are limited, so pre-order as soon as possible if you're planning on purchasing it! Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be available for 3DS in early 2015. Source: Capcom-Unity
  7. Monster Hunter 4 released in Japan last September and has been taking the country by storm ever since, which isn't too surprising considering that the Monster Hunter series is regularly one of the highest-selling franchises next to Pokemon and Puzzle & Dragon. It was even one of the few things in Capcom's portfolio that was a saving grace for the company in the midst of an under-performing year for their mobile division. So it comes as no surprise that Capcom would want to further capitalize on that success; at Monster Hunter Festa 13 they announced Monster Hunter 4G for release on 3DS this Fall in Japan, and save data from MH4 will be transferable. Series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto also announced through a video that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be released in the West in early 2015 on 3DS. Tsujimoto also mentioned that this version of the game would include online play in addition to local play. For now, you can rest easy knowing that Monster Hunter 4 is finally confirmed as coming westward. Source: Siliconera (1, 2) Are you excited for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate?

    Circle Pad Pro Finally Available for 3DS XL

    Before it was revealed, many had expected the 3DS XL to come with a second circle pad by default. As it turned out, the system was larger and great in its own ways but the controller configuration was basically the same. Those who would want to play games that benefit from a second Circle Pad would have to grab a Circle Pad Pro. Of course, one wasn't available for it. The original attachment works fine on 3DS but simply can't fit on the larger 3DS XL. The 3DS XL-specific attachment launched in Japan but US players have been unable to get one without importing. Finally, Nintendo has listed the 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro for purchase. For $20, you can nab an attachment that works with games such as Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Resident Evil: Revelations. Orders placed on Shop Nintendo will begin shipping out on the 19th. Do you think Nintendo will eventually incorporate two Circle Pads into the 3DS's design?

    Wii U Release Date and Launch Window Games

    One of the biggest hurdles to overcome when making a console or handheld is making people want it enough to justify a purchase early on. This is generally handled by trying to come up with the best list of launch day and release window games possible. Although Nintendo has not announced the entire launch day lineup, they have at least given us some information. In regards to confirmed day one releases we have: NintendoLand, New Super Mario Bros. Wii U, and Lego City Undercover. NintendoLand also comes as a pack in game with the $350 Deluxe Set Wii U bundle. It was also announced that Lego City Undercover will come with a minifigure of lead character Chase McCain with pre-order. For now this is all we know about day one Wii U games. Now let's move on to the much larger list of "launch window" games. There are over 50 games coming for the system in this time frame and here's a list of many of them: 007 Legends Aliens: Colonial Marines Assassin“s Creed 3 Avengers: Battle for Earth Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition Ben 10: Omniverse Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013 Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Darksiders II* Disney's Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two Family Party: 30 Great Games FIFA Soccer 13 Funky Barn Game Party Champions Jeopardy Jet Tailfin Just Dance 4 Lego City Undercover Madden NFL 13 Mass Effect 3 Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Nano Assasult Neo NBA 2513 Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Pikmin 3 Rabbids Land Rapala Pro Bass Fishing Rayman Legends Rise of the Guardian the Video Game Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien Scribblenauts Unlimited* Sing Party Skylanders Giants Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing: Transformed Sports Connection Tank! Tank! Tank! Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii Edition The Wonderful 101 Toki Tori 2* Transformers Prime The Game Trine 2 Director“s Cut Game & Wario Wheel of Fortune Wii Fit U Wipeout 3 Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013 ZombiU Zumba Fitness Beyond that, Bayonetta 2 was announced as being a Wii U exclusive. Unfortunately this title wasn't announced as being a part of the launch window. Regardless this is quite a lot of games set to arrive for Nintendo's system. Some games are old, some are new, but it looks like there will be a fairly good amount of choices. Update: Darksiders II, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and Toki Tori 2 have been announced as being release day titles by their respective companies. Do you want any of these games on Wii U? What titles do you want to see on the system?
  10. The PlayStation Vita Hacking team is apparently about to claim a few more victims on the PlayStation Portable side of things if a recent blog post from the well known website wololo.net is to be believed. But seeing how everything they've posted so far has turned out to be correct, those of you who own any of the digital copies of the Monster Hunter games might want to load them up onto your systems right now. A few months ago an exploit was found in the PSP games Motorstorm: Arctic Edge and Everybody Tennis that allowed PlayStation Vita owners to emulate PSP games and run some homebrew on Sony's newest handheld. Upon announcing that these games had an exploit, Sony quickly removed them from the store and kept them off for nearly a month before a patched game was released. This removal barred people from buying the game, but also barred people who had already purchased the game from downloading it onto their systems. Today it was announced that the popular PSP game Monster Hunter Freedom Unite has this same flaw, and in fact most of the Monster Hunter series could be used to exploit the PlayStation Vita's inner workings. The blog goes on to warn potential system exploiters that Sony will more than likely be removing all of the Monster Hunter games from the PlayStation Store within the next few hours or days. And seeing how long they took with games like Motorstorm, we might not be seeing the popular series return at all this month. So I guess you should get to downloading them if you want to have access to them any time soon. You can view the original blog posting below.. Monster Hunter PS Vita Exploit
