Expected to see damage control and unneeded negativity on this thread. Sadly not disappointed.

Game looks okay from what I've seen, but has it been confirmed that Sony paid Capcom to keep it off Nintendo? Why not just make it exclusive if that were the case? Oh well...

''AI and ecosystems are a focus, with new ways to misdirect and mess with monsters.'' I like this.

@BornInNorway81 I'm certain MH5 will be on Switch, so I don't think it really matters. They only difference is that the game is now available to a vastly bigger audience. More people get to enjoy the franchise and maybe more people will pick up a Switch as a result when the inevitable MH5 eventually comes out.

@Tsurii I used to frequent the Capcom Unity forums, and that's not how I remember how things came to be between Capcom and Nintendo. Maybe you're right about the Wii version however, I can remember the uproar at the time (in the Far East) when the Monster Hunter series jumped ship from the PSP to the 3DS, and that Nintendo had a say in the matter.

I can probably find the news transcript for you about the matter if you like? That's why I mentioned 2008/2009 in my original post, since that is when the transitional period from PSP to Wii/3DS happened.

In any case, what's happened has happened and it dealt a significant enough blow to the series (on PlayStation) and its original partnership between Capcom and Sony, and even affected the PS Vita too.

Today, though, Switch owners have Generations/XX to look forward to, 3DS owners have Stories to look forward to and the trio of the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have Monster Hunter World to look forward to.

Everybody's (mostly) happy!

Am I the only one who's excited for grappling hooks and full 3D mounting and traversal?

That, and hopefully not having to go through a loading screen on a frequent basis are the biggest reasons for my excitement, actually.

No.

The grapple hook is the one thing that actually puts me off besides that godawful new monster design (the yellow "zamtrios" looked cool tho)

And I think they showed the new "loading screens" for area transitions with that bit of swimming and the guy breaking through the vines/roots. That is another thing I actually liked

What a beautiful signature.

Game looks ok, but has a... sluggy vibe to it.

@Peek-a-boo Wrong. Capcom approached Nintendo when they saw the potential dev costs for the PS3.

The breaking point seemingly was when SCE's NA division blocked Portable 3rd HD from being localized because it didn't support PSN or trophies. It was then that Capcom and Nintendo worked out a deal.

@Haru17 Welp, all that's interesting.
Multiplayer being drop-in/drop-out is an absolute bummer, though.

@Tsurii Why tho? Uncharted 4 and The Wind Waker's rope swings were great, and that could only be exemplified by aerial fights with monsters or swinging to higher ground in an area.

I will admit that that was one of the worst Monster Hunter trailers I have ever seen, admittedly it had a lot to establish. It just needed more bold music and a clearer narrative through line. Also the next trailer needs to show other regions and monsters.

I really hope underwater is in despite all the denials we've seen. I would kill for an ocean zone even if it's just Lagiacrus and Ceadeus again.

@CrazedCavalier Why is that a bummer? It's more fluid than we've got, and you can invite friends specifically if you want.

@Haru17 It's an excision of the previous system and means that Monsters can't be balanced differently for single and multiplayer.

And it took very little effort to post a join code and lock it to friends only, as our excursions from the Gen thread demonstrated.

@CrazedCavalier It'll take even less effort to press Y and watch other hunters fly in.

And I'd imagine these monsters will be dynamically balanced as hunters join and leave at will. Unless you have any evidence that your claims are true and that can't happen.

@Haru17 I could potentially see how that could work.

Really, I'm just more bothered than anything by the anti-Xers jumping for joy and projecting their hatred for arts and styles on Capcom's mindset and the potential for no XX localization.
I'm desperately hoping TGS has something to assuage fears for the series' overall direction.

The monster they focused on during the trailer looks a bit too... Dinosaur.

I mean, when It's not flaring its fabulous nose balloons, it simply looks like a pink t-rex.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I really don't think Sony really paid Capcom to not release this game on Switch, but didn't bother to do so on MICROSOFT? It seems like that isn't anything close to being possible or logical. You'd think Sony would try to get rid of its actual competition.

@crimsoncavalier Indeed, it's not as if Sony and Microsoft are paying the other companies to keep games like COD, Battlefront and pretty much every other third party game from appearing on the Switch...

Edit: If there was any sort of deal, it was concerning the announcement. Appearing at Sony's conference instead of the Microsoft conference (and imagine that, Monster Hunter at Microsoft after they ditched Scalebound, that would be something).
