2019 marks 15 years since Monster Hunter was first released, and Capcom Japan is celebrating the occasion with a slew of 15th-anniversary tie-ups and merchandise. Though majority of the merchandise is only available in Japan, a new range of Uniqlo tees are coming soon Uniqlo stores worldwide.
Since 2004, Capcom has been churning out new entries to the franchise year on year, and each new iteration managed to sell incrementally more than the previous one. There’s no doubt the Monster Hunter franchise is going places, with even a live-action movie starring Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa releasing in 2020.
Now for the Monster Hunter fans who stuck with Capcom all these years, they’ve put together a 15th-anniversary video that’s bound to bring back some wonderful hunting memories.
The trailer starts off with the first Monster Hunter released way back in 2004 on the PlayStation 2 and Wii, and ends off with Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, a massive expansion DLC landing Autumn of 2019. The new expansion will feature a new quest rank, monsters, locales, moves, and equipment. And the story picks up right after the events of Monster Hunter: World.
