Monster Hunter games have been on my backlog for far too long. The time of Monster Hunter Generations came and went, and it became yet another game on my ever-growing list. Then came E3 2017, and Capcom debuted the gorgeous Monster Hunter World announcement trailer. Now that I’ve gotten some time with it at Tokyo Game Show, I’m confident that this is going to be the Monster Hunter that finally gets me into the series.
Stressing that I was new to Monster Hunter, a helpful Capcom representative helped me find a weapon to suit my play style and skill level. A majority of the games I’ve played at TGS have been understandably in Japanese, but even in English the Monster Hunter World equipment menu was intimidating at first glance. I was happy to find that the menus were designed with teaching in mind as each weapon has an instructional preview video.
