Ah, Monster Hunter. A game that ends up being more of a culture than anything else. These have always been games about community and self-improvement. Getting better isn't measured in some arbitrary number, but how well you c...

I'm no Monster Hunter player but I'm liking the cross-game costumes for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Well, most of them. In line with today's Devil May Cry re-release news, Capcom has shown a Felyne outfit based on Dante. That...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate went on sale on October 11th in Japan, and already it has mustered up over two million in sales. The original base game for reference sold roughly 4.1 million units for comparison. Now that it sold over two million, the series doesn't have to be canceled, due to Capcom's new "AAA logic." Just sell yourself to Nintendo already. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate [Capcom]
Man, Capcom is killing it with these Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crossovers. And by "it," I of course mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He never stood a chance. This Palico armor styled after Mega Man is super cute but, admittedly, it'...
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is still coming in 2015 outside of Japan, and there's yet another Nintendo/Capcom crossover coming. A Samus costume is making an appearance, and yes, it will be coming to the western version of the ...

When the west finally gets Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate -- what Capcom calls "the most complete version of 4 that it'll get" -- players are going to need to turn their attention to the layering of the game. Rather...
Admittedly, this collaboration is slightly less horrifying once you realize it's a Felyne (or Palico, if you want to be precise) wearing Sonic the Hedgehog armor. Slightly. Still, I think this tops the sexy/stretchy fan art f...
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is coming out in Japan next month. The rest of us will be waiting until 2015. Perhaps it eases the wait: Capcom announced a Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate collector's edition for North America.&...
Last month, we brought you an investigative, penetrative look at this $29,000 gold Monster Hunter statue. Particularly, "does it...does it have a lil dick?" we asked. It wasn't immediately clear. All the photos prov...
A bunch of Capcom eShop 3DS and Wii U games are on sale until the morning of September 4.  Writing about Capcom just makes me want to replay every Clover game and Resident Evil 4. At least Mega Fans are getting good Mega Man alternates.
This new gameplay video of Final Fantasy Explorers has me praying to the ghost of Gunpei Yokoi that Square Enix will localize this game to the U.S. The gameplay looks to be somewhat like the Monster Hunter series and that is...
Capcom is selling a $29,000, solid gold Otomo Airou statue to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Monster Hunter.  Does it have a dick, though? We at the Destructoid virtual office thought it might. "does it...does ...
Capcom Unity, the community site for the developer, has announced the official box art for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which is set to release in western markets in 2015. You can see both the actual art and the spine font in t...
We've already known that Monster Hunter 4 has a very neat looking set of Link armor and weapon sets, but we haven't seen a whole lot of footage on them -- until this week that is, when Capcom unleashed a new trailer int...
I don't think anyone expected the North American weapon contest winner to top the UK's Monster Hunter 4 design (a freaking pig on a club, c'mon!), but it's a pretty cool looking item nonetheless. Yep, the North American...
As we wait until 2015, Japan is getting Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate in October and, with it, a chance to clutter players' living spaces with more kitschy junk.  The limited edition (above) comes with four figurines an...

We all know that a successful Monster Hunter can make a portable. The PSP exploded after each subsequent Monster Hunter launch, and the Vita is currently suffering in part for a lack of the franchise. Nintendo ...
There's going to be a long wait before most of us get to play Monster Hunter 4 on the 3DS, but in the meantime, we can enjoy the festivities from Capcom's recent weapon design contest. Sending out a casting call to all ...
Here we are in 2014 with an iOS port of a PSP game, in the form of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. The kicker? It's very, very good. As a port of 2008's Freedom Unite, everything is faithfully recreated on an iOS devi...
Waiting for one of Capcom’s own to sit in and play with me for my first go at upcoming 3DS title Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, I got a bit hasty and started picking my own quest. Little did I know I was headed for trouble...

We already knew that Capcom did pretty decent for itself last year. This was thanks in no small part to Monster Hunter 4, which moved 4.1 million copies in Japan and South Korea. Capcom's not calling it a day, as it has more ...
If you hear some hootin' and hollerin', and maybe spot a party hat or two, that's just Capcom celebrating its decent fiscal year. Not everybody actually makes money anymore, so don't rain on its parade. Capcom's good year was...
This week Capcom released the iOS version of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and it doesn't look half bad -- if you have an MFi controller of course (the on-screen touch prompts look pretty nasty). Why does it look decent, you...
My, how time flies. Capcom's indomitable Monster Hunter series has been around for ten years now, and to celebrate its tenth anniversary, Capcom has teamed up with ESP Guitars to release what could be the most metal guitar I'...
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (4G in Japan) is on its way over here in "early 2015," and you can get a glimpse of what's to come in a new video straight from Capcom. At first the trailer starts off all serious, with high stakes ...
Originality is a pretty hard thing to come by, and ideas don't just materialize out of thin air. They're a patchwork of experiences lifted from our surroundings, filtered, and diffused back out into the world. Many of us hide...
Capcom is currently undergoing its 30th anniversary, and one of the celebrations is in the form of a Monster Hunter and Mega Man mash-up. Of course it isn't an actual game, but rather a toy featuring a Felyne dressed up as th...

Capcom has been pretty quiet on their plans to localize Monster Hunter 4, which had the West's small but dedicated Monster Hunter fanbase a little worried. Well worry no more, fictional animal murderers! Capcom has announced...
Fire Emblem: Awakening is Nintendo resident tough-as-nails, patience testing magic-and-fantasy 3DS title. Monster Hunter is Capcom's resident tough-as-nails, patience testing club-a-dinosaur game franchise. Putting them...
Monster Hunter 4 has sold incredibly well. This pleases Nintendo and thus there is a pretty Monster Hunter 4 3DS. But, hey, why stop there? Starting December 2 and shimmying on into January of the new year, Monster Hunter 4 f...
What with its 2.5 million and climbing sales, Monster Hunter 4 is showing no signs of slowing down. Not many signs of releasing outside of Japan, either. But for fans in Japan, or intrepid importers, here's a cool thing: a cy...

Capcom is so dandy when it comes to giving fans what they ask for. And by dandy, I mean it's some kind of videogame developer Wishmaster giddily slapping its fans across their faces with its slimy tendril dreadlocks and iron...
I bet Sony is kicking itself (in its butt) over its inability to wrangle up a Monster Hunter game for the Vita. Despite promising a Monster Hunter game would come to Vita in 2012, the system is barren when it comes to that fa...
Capcom's Monster Hunter 4 is already getting rave reviews and is poised to be another hit entry in the series, but Capcom and Nintendo aren't content to sit on their laurels and watch the game just sell millions. They're wor...
