One of the key components of any Monster Hunter game is the elaborate crafting system that backs the majority of the item economy. While it is certainly possible to buy items in shops, it's almost always a better choice to go out and make it yourself by finding and combining the right materials. Arguably one of the most commonly used items is honey, which is necessary in the production of effective potions.

Oddly enough, it seems that Monster Hunter Generations will be endorsing a certain type of honey over in Japan. The honey is being manufactured by Rakuten – a company that has been making honey for more than 200 years – and it goes on sale later this month. There doesn't seem to be anything particularly special about this honey, but it's nonetheless an interesting cross-promotion attempt.
