We've talked about this in a bunch of other threads by now, but I'd like to focus the discussion to, well, stop doing that. The reveal and the trailer posted to YouTube use slightly different shots, but I think I've gathered all of the information so far. Quickly;

  • MHW's open world is a newly continent and features a rotating day/night cycle.
  • Confirmed weapon types include great sword, hammer, bow, and bowgun.
  • Confirmed monsters are Anjanath, Rathalos, and a new, unnamed Aptonoth-swallower toad.
  • Drop-in online multiplayer across all IRL regions.
  • New tracking, gathering, and bomb systems, maybe inventory changes?
  • AI and ecosystems are a focus, with new ways to misdirect and mess with monsters.
  • Platforms: PS4, XB1, and PC.
  • Unfortunately Nintendo systems seem to be prohibited by Capcom's rumored deal with Sony.

Here's an image someone put together with all the new info, and here's the cover art featuring Rathalos. Besides what we know now, more will be shown on Sony's E3 stream 6/13 at 5:45 pm PST, 6/15 at 12:30pm on twitch.tv/capcomunity, and later in a livestream on Capcom's Japanese YouTube on 6/20 at 7:30pm JST.

Oh baby, Capcom is a leaky sieve! A UK community manager is confirming all sorts of things on Twitter (where I got the new gif).

Namely that ALL 14 weapons, potions, stamina, sharpness, and the roasting music will be returning. So... you can stop rioting now, lol. It's Monster Hunter.

Well MHXX's thread is constantly talking about this game, so World having it's own thread will stop that...I'll tell them about this thread.

Anyways I'm kinda "meh" on this at the moment. Maybe I'll look into it at some point (if my PC can handle it, lol) but for now, I'm sticking with the main games. xD

Not convinced that I'll like it more than the main games, but we'll see. I'll keep an eye on it.

I'm more interested in this than XX... but I'm even more interested in Stories! Still, maybe I'll get all of them. The trailer is amazing and while some of you may feel doubts about the changes, I'm sure they will feel as improvements and probably be keepers for the new games, even if it isn't a main series entry.

Finally a Monster Hunter on consoles that isn't a port of a portable installment. Really hyped about this!

Here's a crucially extended cut of the trailer. Just environmental noise, no music. This game definitely looks a little early, but I think that's just Capcom being honest more than anything. They still have to play with some of the animations and sound effects.

The underwater clip they showed is only an area transition, hopefully there are true underwater areas besides. But that flood of water is this sick area transition and — you just need to see it.

At 1:17 you can see some sort of town way off in the distance. Perhaps that's the Guild's foothold in this new land? There are sharper, craggy mountains inland from the forest region shown — perhaps that's a mountain area? I think the forest is like one 'area' in a traditional Monster Hunter game, and they'll expand out from their with a few more larger biomes based around a certain theme; plains, volcano, tundra, ocean, etc.

I don't know what is going with Capcom.
It's looks like a betrayal.
Capcom want to "Shutdown" Switch by releasing newest Monster Hunter on ps4/xbox1/pc without ANY Nintendo release. Now, I feel a Parasite here...

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

I'm glad they decided to do this instead of a main line monster hunter game for the powerful consoles. I think this a better use of the power than a port (for those who are out of the loop monster hunter is massively more popular in Japan and they prefer mobile versions and thus mainline games are made for mobile consoles). Also did anyone else get the impression that this is going to have fast gameplay with less emphasis on preparation (which would make sense for a game aimed at the western market).

Sony can keep this spinoff for itself. True MH is going to stay where it belongs

@SkyLordGuy I don't know what you're talking about, there was a ton of preparation in the tactics of tracking a monster through an area, luring a monster with sonic bombs, hiding to avoid notice, and gathering new bomb items from the environment to use in hunts.

Monster Hunter trailers never show crafting, menus, or the forge.

Actually, they seemed to have turned the HUD off completely, and I kept wondering if it was for trailer footage, or if they're planning to revamp the HUD so it looks better on a TV...

@CanisWolfred Both, I imagine. I found the extended trailer footage again, and you can see the screen coloring red around the edges when the hunter is damaged. Also you can see this SICK standing water clip so please please please watch it. It's so good! My GOD, this game!

Edit: the Chrome translation of a Japanese webpage reads "Forest of Ancient Tree." No idea if that's correct, but I like that name for this zone.

@Anti-Matter Betrayal, huh?

Did you know that the Monster Hunter series was born and raised on both the PlayStation 2 and PSP?

Once upon a time, Nintendo approached Capcom back in 2008/2009 and said that they would like to see the Monster Hunter series on the Wii and 3DS (Monster Hunter 3 and 3G respectively) and thus, given their popularity, especially in Japan, the Monster Hunter series has been on various Nintendo systems ever since.

These companies are not our friends! They want to make money and release their game(s) on a platform with a big audience, hence the reason why Monster Hunter: World is coming out on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The 3DS and Switch isn't being left out by the way; you have got Generations/XX and Stories to look forward to.

Anyways, as much as I admire Haru's enthusiasm, I personally don't feel excited about this.

I've never played any Monster Hunter games, so I ask: is MH for PC and the other consoles bad for Nintendo? I just imagine fewer people will buy Switch now because they can get MH elsewhere.
