Monster Hunter and Jazz Finally Brought Together

Swing that giant sword

When battling huge monsters in Monster Hunter Tri, and no doubt desperately hoping to hunt down some extra meat to gorge on, have you ever wished that there was a jazz soundtrack to keep you going? Well, the day has finally arrived, if you live in Japan.

As reported by Andriasang, Capcom has released a new soundtrack with a rather snappy title — The Monster Hunter Swing: Big Band Jazz Arrange. Perhaps the interpretation to English hasn't done it any favours, but the CD does include ten tracks spanning the history of the franchise right up to the latest 3DS release, Monster Hunter 3 G.

Those of us outside of Japan are yet to get our hands on the 3DS title, nor can we pop to our local shop to buy the soundtrack, but the video below does provide a toe-tapping five minute taster.

Never played a Monster Hunter game myself, but I cant wait until the 3DS ones come out to try them out!

As a fan of big band music, I hope this comes out to NoA. It probably won't, but if it does I'll buy it.

I LOVED the Gyakuten Saiban Jazz Album, this seems to be by the same team. So very very awesome.

At first I thought this was going to be about Jazz the jackrabbit but this is cool too.

I need this really bad, I love jazz so much.

Although this is rather random, nothing about Monster Hunter says jazz to me. XD
