New Website and Special Message
In anticipation of the 20th anniversary, Capcom has launched a brand new website dedicated to all things Monster Hunter. The website features a special message from the Monster Hunter team, expressing their gratitude to the dedicated fanbase. The message highlights the series’ evolution over the past two decades, from its humble beginnings in 2004 to the worldwide success of Monster Hunter: World.
“In the first installment in 2004, players could wield five different weapons and set out from two settlements: Kokoto and Minegarde. Since then, the long journey over the past two decades has seen hunters traverse snowy mountains, the deep sea floor, ancient ruins, and undiscovered continents.”
The Monster Hunter team acknowledges the immense support and feedback from the players, which has been instrumental in shaping the series and delivering better gaming experiences with each new title. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the team expresses gratitude for the warm messages received from fans worldwide.
