[TGA 2023] Monster Hunter: Wilds: Time For Another Hunt [VIDEO]

It was expected that Capcom would make a new episode of its other most successful franchise in recent times, besides Resident Evil.


It’s true that this time the Japanese publisher has released a teaser video, but it’s no coincidence that the game is still more than a year away. Target platforms don’t include the Nintendo Switch, where the previous entry in the series, Monster Hunter: Rise, was released in 2021 (and was a success there, too), but for the larger consoles, the previous installment, Monster Hunter: World, was released in 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (and seven months later for PC).

The video shows a desert environment with a number of new additions: monsters attacking in groups, a flying chocobo-like animal to ride, and a greater emphasis on weather effects, with a sandstorm and lots of lightning. This could make Monster Hunter a new-gen experience if it’s all there in Wilds, which also seems to be more fast-paced (which is an improvement, as the previous installments had slightly slower combat), but it’s not going to be Devil May Cry V (it’s not trying to be; we’re comparing Capcom franchises).

Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto wrote in a press release, “We are thrilled to announce Monster Hunter Wilds today and to introduce the latest entry in the Monster Hunter series to fans around the world. Our team is working passionately to create the greatest Monster Hunter experience yet, and we can’t wait for everyone to play the game when it launches in 2025. Until then, stay tuned for more information in the summer of 2024.

Monster Hunter: Wilds will be released sometime in 2025 for PlayStation 5, Xbox series and PC (Denuvo use is almost guaranteed). The project will most likely be developed on the REX engine, the next generation of the RE engine. The second video is an interview with Tsujimoto.
