Monster Hunter Online recently launched in China under the watchful eyes of partners Tencent Games and Capcom. The game’s producer, Mr Tao from Tencent, gave an interview where he stated the co-operation with Capcom does not stop at Monster Hunter Online, listing out series such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, Onimusha, Dino Crisis, and Sengoku Basara as examples.
Mr Tao confirmed talks are ongoing with Capcom, as well as popular overseas IPs to start new projects. The first update for Monster Hunter Online arrives this month, and will introduce a new weapon, new monsters, and new costumes. The plan is to update the game on a monthly basis with at least a new monster or feature. A concert based on Monster Hunter’s music is being considered.
