Monster Hunter Tri Interview Details Co-Op Slaying, Voice Chat, And More


Posted March 26, 2010 - By Jake Gaskill

Capcom’s latest installment in their wildly popular Monster Hunter franchise has been tearing up the sales charts in Japan since last year, and in a few weeks, Monster Hunter Tri will be lumbering its way onto Wii’s in North America.

G4 recently caught up with Capcom during a press event appropriately held at the La Brea Tar Pits here in Los Angeles to find out more about the game. I asked Capcom community specialist Shawn Baxter about the growing popularity of co-op multiplayer in games (which Capcom has seen great success with thanks to Lost Planet as well), and how this trend will favor the Monster Hunter series now that its hitting consoles in the states.

“We definitely think that this is going to be the next big thing for players who want to go on co-op quests and go hunting for these big epic beasts. We’re really taking it, and putting it on a console, of course, like the Wii; it’s allowing us to do more graphically with Monster Hunter than we ever have. The online is bigger than most games will ever have.”
