If Chao Garden and Animal Crossing had a love child, it would be Monster Hunter Diary

Cameo by Tom Nook!

Today in “things I really want to be localized but probably never will,” I’ve come across Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Airou Village DX, an upgraded port of a PSP game from 2010 that was developed by From Software, strangely enough.

In MHD, you play as a chibi version of one of the Felyne cat creatures from the Monster Hunter series in an Animal Crossing-esque game about style, village management, battling monsters, and raising creatures like Chao from Sonic Adventure; basically all the best parts of the games it is influenced by. The 3DS port looks to add in a Mario costume and a cameo from everyone’s favorite loan shark raccoon, Tom Nook!

The embedded video above was taken from the latest Capcom TV episode. Gameplay can be seen at around 13 minutes in and a new trailer is toward the end at 37:45. Who do I have to make a sacrifice to in order to get this game localized?
