Monster Hunter Creators Will Not Appear at GAME'S Launch Event This Friday

Posted by Zach Kaplan

Volcano!!!

We previously reported that Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and director Kaname Fujiok would appear at London's GAME this friday to celebrate the release of Monster Hunter 3 (Tri~). Unfortunately, the Icelandic volcano eruption has suspended their travel and the two have cancelled their appearance at the event. The first fifty in line for the launch will still be able to pick up a bag of secret goodies, however, and the first hundred will receive a game sleeve signed by the aforementioned gentlemen, so there's still reason to get down there and pick up your copy. The press release and invitation are as follows:

Monster Hunter Tri developer appearance at GAME, Oxford Street CANCELLED.

Unfortunately following continued disruption to global air travel due to volcanic activity in Iceland, Monster Hunter Tri developers Ryozo Tsujimoto and Kaname Fujioka are unable to attend this Friday’s store launch at GAME, Oxford Street as planned.

Fear not Hunters, there’ll still be a monster load of activity to roar about as Game’s Oxford Street store is transformed to celebrate the launch of Monster Hunter Tri on Wii.

Be one of first 50 people in line to buy the game and receive a very special Monster Hunter bag that includes some exclusive Monster Hunter items not available in the UK. If that wasn't enough, the first 100 people to purchase Monster Hunter Tri will be sent an exclusive game sleeve signed by Ryozo Tsujimoto and Kaname Fujioka so it’s well worth a visit.

DATE: Friday 23rd April 2010
TIME: 9.00am – 9:00pm
ADDRESS: GAME,100 Oxford Street, London, W1D 1LL
ENTRY: Free to everyone

Check back with us in a few days for our exclusive interview with these two talented creators as they answer questions on all things Monster Hunter.

I was feeling crappy. Now the title and comments have filled my mind with the image of Game being picked up and 'lanched' down Oxford Street by a couple of super-strong Japanese people. So now I feel better. And amused.

Shame about them not being there, but surely they could've just hitched a ride on the back of one of the larger flying monsters to get here? It would've been one hell of an entrance, too.

@Raylax Every monster knows that where there's volcanic smoke, there's more monsters being born (or, as scientists say, "erupted") into the world. No sane monster would risk flying into more monsters.

OK now I just got mental images of monsters being born in a fashion that can be described only as 'erupted.' I hope these creatures don't class as mammals because that's quite a nasty image.

...And also somewhat hilarious.

LOL, I'm glad I wasn't drinking coffee when I read your comment!

Crazy about the volcano causing so much trouble though. I saw some pictures yesterday, of lightning coming out of it. They were really interesting.

@egg miester - It's not so much important, but as we originally reported this event was happening it would be remiss not to issue a short update. Also, you'll all be pleased to know I've put u in the title now. You're welcome :)
