Capcom’s Monster Hunter Showcase: Everything Announced-Tokyo Game Show 2021

Capcom knows you like to hunt monsters, so the company brought only the news of Monster Hunter to the Tokyo Game Show 2021. In a video presentation, Series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Monster Hunter Rise director Yasunori Ichinose outlined some of the additions to the game and gave a glimpse behind the scenes of the four-year development process.

Everything the show covers in one place is here:

Sunbreak’s “Major Expansion” Get New Details

Sunbreak Expansion Director Yoshitake Suzuki participated in the video and talked about what he is working on. Tsujimoto said it will arrive next summer and Sunbreak is a “major expansion” of the base game, including “new locales, monsters, gameplay, new quest ranks: master ranks.” Suzuki explained that the sunbreak will take place at a new location far from Kamura village. The “flagship monster” in this game is the elder dragon, Marzeno. He also added that Monster Hunter 2 general Ceanataur would return a crab-like beast with hard shells and scissors to Sunbreak.

Monster Hunter Rise Appears in January

Through a new trailer, Capcom has revealed that the Steam version of Monster Hunter Rise will be released on January 12, 2022, and the demo will be released on October 13. This new version of the game includes all the free DLC for the Nintendo Switch version. Until the end of November. The technical specifications weren’t disclosed, but the trailer mentioned 4k resolution, high-resolution textures, unlimited frame rates, and ultra-wide displays. The official website should have been published by the time this story was published, along with the pre-order.

30th Anniversary Sonic the Hedgehog Collaboration Announced

Little is known about this Monster Hunter Rise collaboration, except for what’s scheduled for November. Ichinose said Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was a collaboration with Sonic and emphasized that this would be different.

More Free DLC in Monster Hunter Stories 2

RPG spin-offs add new monsters, quests, co-op challenges and more. The trailer (above) outlines the full schedule of upcoming free updates to the RPG, and a trial version is now available that players can take over. Save the data throughout the game. You can also receive “Camla Garb” layered armor at the Wings of Ruin by linking the save data of Monster Hunter Rise.

Ghosts’n Goblins collaboration that will appear in Monster Hunter Rise in October

After a series of Monster Hunter Rise crossovers with other Capcom titles, the fifth internal collaboration will be with Ghosts’n Goblins Resurrection. On October 29th, players will be able to obtain materials as an event quest reward that transforms a hunter into the legendary Sir Arthur, the hero of the Ghosts’n Goblins series. Equipped with this layered armor, the player’s throwing knife turns into Arthur’s signature spear, unlocking the music from the recent eerie series resurrection.

Explanation of the Japanese theme of Monster Hunter Rise

Tsujimoto and Ichinose spent a few minutes providing a “behind-the-scenes chat” outlining what happened to make Monster Hunter Rise, especially the Japanese theme that inspired many monsters. Many of the giant beasts that players hunt were based on youkai, a mythical creature from Japanese folklore. Ichinose gave many concrete examples: Aknosom resembles an umbrella-like teasing kid, Tetranadon looks like a kappa, and Theostra is the ruler of the underworld who judges the soul after death. Draw the story of Yama (you may remember the huge red version of that figure of Dragon Ball).

Ichinose said that he took in so many ideas from youkai that he eventually ran out of fantastic beasts, and Valstrax borrowed a little myth from Halley’s Comet. I also saw a series of musical performances of the game showing off traditional Japanese musical instruments.

Capcom expands Street Fighter V tournament to eight teams

There is no news about Monster Hunter anymore, but Capcom’s show ended with a “news corner” dedicated to esports. The Street Fighter League tournament (with English broadcast) was held on October 5, and the number of teams was increased from 6 to 8 and the total number of games increased to 56.
