We kicked off this year with the release of Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World, and now we’ve learned that the franchise is expanding with an animated special!
As spotted over on Game Informer, Pure Imagination Studios is producing Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild, an animated short penned by Joshua Fine (Ultimate Spider Man).
Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild follows an aspiring hunter who wishes to prove himself. He gets his opportunity when his village is threatened by an Elder Dragon, one of the late-game bosses of Monster Hunter: World.
“We are thrilled to return fans to the universe of Monster Hunter,” said property producer Ryozo Tsujimoto. “We think die-hard fans will appreciate our dedication to the source material while those uninitiated to the series will still be treated to an epic adventure in a wholly unique world.”
Expect the animated special in 2019.
