"It's drawn some comparison to the likes of the Monster Hunter franchise though, to be fair, this is a rather different proposition."

This is hilarious. You've used this exact sentence to describe this game three times now. So I'll ask again: How is it exactly a "rather different proposition" from Monster Hunter?

@Dissident I keep reading it's Monster Hunter with a Final Fantasy look. First thing NintendoLife mentions in this preview is Monster Hunter.

So I'd really like to hear them explain WHY it's supposedly such a "different proposition" than MH rather than saying it like it's fact. (To be honest, the more it's like Monster Hunter, the more I'm likely to buy it.)

You keep saying this about Final Fantasy: Explorers, but I still don't get how it's supposed to be a different proposition from Monster Hunter.

@rjejr It might have been like a 'no, a 3DS XL is not coming'-style denial while they were working on a deal with DeNa. Remember, the announcement of mobile games caused Nintendo to reveal working on the NX just to reassure people they are still in the 'hardcore' gaming business. I think his words on how Nintendo will operate when going into the mobile gaming business still stand and I'd like to see Nintendo keep themselves to those words (ie no crappy practices).

Also, I'm pretty sure Nintendo will be making the games, at least that's what they said: "Moriyasu furthered this sentiment by stating that Nintendo will make the games and DeNA will support them." (Source)

@Oubie I do hope not everything will be free-to-play though. I recently bought my first mobile game (Steven Universe: Attack the Light) and really loved it. I'm sure Nintendo could make mobile games that are worthy of actually purchasing as well.

Man, that quarantine room practice sounds brutal. For anyone interested, I also found this article on it.

"He was told that he and the other employee who opposed the transfer were to work in a hallway facing the restrooms in an annex building (...) After a month, he couldn't focus on his reading anymore. Various ailments began to crop up: nausea, headaches and lethargy. His working environment got worse in July. Management ordered the two desks be separated and cordoned off by a temporary wall. (...) He could not get out of bed in the morning. He felt too weak to even reach out for a glass of water, although he was thirsty. He had also lost 15 kilograms since the transfer. Once, while driving, his body began to shake violently."

@Oubie Exactly what I was thinking. Here's a NintendoLife article about it. Although upon reading it again, it doesn't exclude things like microtransactions, they just don't want to do it in a crappy way.

"Iwata-san stated that pricing "will be compared with the prices of other smart device game applications", but made clear that even in free-to-play the company will be aiming for structures that don't draw criticism for shady practices. The goal is to earn a small amount of revenue per player from many millions around the world, as opposed to extracting large sums from a small audience through dubious, addictive models."

We'll have to wait and see how this plays out. Maybe Nintendo can get free-to-play right?

@ikki5 You found out about the lock-on camera? Tapping on the monster icon on your touchscreen will let you focus on the monster by pressing the left shoulder button. I've found that made hunting a lot more fun. (But maybe you did know about that and still didn't like it, which can happen.)

Weeds can be easily avoided by enacting the Beautiful town ordinance (ahhh, a law that forbids weeds from growing and flowers from wilting, only in Animal Crossing). The only bad part about not keeping up with your town is your favourite villagers moving out.
