Monster Hunter Tri

Contender for hardcore game of the year!

Don't be alarmed! If you've never played this before, you are not about to step into one of those naughty clubs that stressed businessmen get into trouble for going to. Yes, the men in Monster Hunter Tri may be walking around with glaring holes where the seats of their pants should be, but they're not really anything to do with The Village People, so just ignore it. It's just Tri's silly sense of humour. You hunt dino-monsters, right, so why not walk around with daft trousers?

This is another title that's been out in Japan for some time, shifting well over a million copies so far. It has been doing so well in fact that Capcom has decided to not only grace us Europeans with its presence, but grace us with an even better version. The nub of the game is its comprehensive online system, which our poor Nintendo brethren in Japan had to pay a subscription for. Not us. And we'll get to talk to each other as we play, presumably about how awesome it is playing Tri online for diddly-squat.

Monster Hunter has been wildly popular in all of its previous guises on PlayStation machines, though they left many of us cold with their endless clinical lists of missions and strange, disjointed game design. You look at a list, choose a bounty to hunt and then get out there and find it.

Now, there's a tangible sense of living in a thriving land before time. It's like going to one of those museums that showed you how the Vikings lived, minus all the irritating groups of pre-school kids on a day out. There's a base for you, a pleasant village where you'll pick up quests and jobs, but instead of trudging through tutorials you're eased into things in a - GASP - entertaining way.

You'll wander into the forest after nosing around the village to be gently taught the essentials. Mining, fishing, catching your supper, setting up camp and, of course, slaying 20-feet high monsters all become second nature, but you'll feel like you've played a game rather than endured a drink-your-own-wee sesh with Bear Grylls.

Online play is Tri's strength. The problem in the UK of course is that Monster Hunter hasn't quite taken off as a phenomenon, but that should change. The idea is that you'll bump into countless people ambling about, killing beasts, haggling in towns or, often, running like hell from 50-foot fire-breathing lizards. You'll die a lot, but you'll want to come back for more. And the prospect of teaming up with friends to bring down a creature the size of a skyscraper is genuinely enticing.

Far from being an oddly popular game in Japan, this should be an international smash for Capcom.

    This looks the business. I think the Wii has been crying out for a game like this for some time, and I fully expect it to deliver the goods once it finally comes out!

  2. HNF1 Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 18:06

    This will be ace. It's awesome. It's new for me. The Wii, well, this generation has nothing else like it (bar the MH on PSP though that's not meant to be anywhere near as good). And most improtantly it looks epic, fun, addictive and creative. Me cannot waitz =D.

  3. bob901 Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 18:30

    Same HNF1 this is my first Monster Hunter and I am so hyped, it's got everything and more. Lead the way
    Capcom April is going to own. Bring on Monster Hunter, I love huge worlds and huge amounts of things to do.

  4. Broken_Angel Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 18:35

    finally, another game i can point to when the fanboys start the "wii's graphics suck" arguements. ive seen loads of top-selling 360 titles that are nowhere near this pretty

  5. mega mario 76 Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 18:42

    i'm defnitly getting this it looks brilliant it will be the first

  6. Splinter435 Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 18:44

    This is why I need online.

  7. ProMac Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 18:50

    Bear Grylls............BORN SURVIVOR! Great show! Bit disgusting (P155 on your cap to stay cool in the Sahara? WTF)

    ....Back on topic. MH3! XD! Though I wanted it on my PS3 :( . Oh well I have a Wii.

    Do. Want. :D

    In the words of Mr Burns ''excellent''

  10. wyvern smasher Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 20:13

    this is gonna be a great game, i just hope the wii crowd are ready for a game like this. it can be pretty daunting for a newcomer

  11. frostykins Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 20:37

    This game looks epic, shame it's a 16 I'll just have to go and cry in the corner :'(

    What a f**king mistake capcom made reason 1 this game has online co op and the wii's online is f**king horrible. 2nd i and there is no excuse other than nintendo being lazy batsrards and thats graphics im sure capcom will come to there sences and realease this on ps3 as it should have been just to reiterate the wii sucks monkey balls

    1. Have you actually taken a look at the screenshots? they are amazing. I know 360/PS3 owners who are drooling over this one.
    2. Have you ever actually used the Wii's online functions?
    They are quicker, simpler and easier to use than the online system for any other console.
    3. Do you actually have any grasp of the English language?
    If you're going to insult a console on an official site, at least have the good decency to make a well thought out, correctly phrased opinion. Furthermore, if you think the Wii "sucks monkey balls", why are you even on these forums? I have no problem with 360/PS3 owners on these forums, because the majority of them have at least some respect for the Wii and it's software.
    4. I believe the proper vernacular is "fornicating", not "f**king"

  14. Gothic_Geek Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 21:35

    The online'll be free you say?!?

    YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :mrgreen:

    you got that right. I crapped my self the first time i came across a monster lol. Has anyone else actually played the PSP ones? because it sounds like me and wyvern smasher are going to be the ones dying less lol.

    RonnieBoy2k8 you sound like a troll. If you don't like the game why did you have to post in the topic about the game. you'll only get backlash.

    No, I prefer games which provide a challenge with a plot and a story line. You are obviously a brain dead chav who only likes pretty pictures and maybe some glingly noises. If you saw the size of my game and console collection, you would know that im not cheap

    I have no idea what any of this means, but I'm going to try and respond to it anyway.

    If you're calling this game's graphics crap, I honestly want to know what magical space age game console you've been playing games on. I've been playing nothing but Killzone 2 and Assassin's Creed II in HD since Christmas and I still find Monster Hunter Tri's graphics absolutely wonderful.

    As for the online, I'm pretty sure Capcom are in control of servers and stuff. I've not had an issue with the online capabilities in some of Capcom's other games, so I have faith in them.

    Honestly, why are rabid fanboy posts always written by people who can't type coherently?

  19. MARION64WII Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 22:16

    finally, another game i can point to when the fanboys start the "wii's graphics suck" arguements. ive seen loads of top-selling 360 titles that are nowhere near this pretty

    I agree the graphics of a 360 arent that much of an improvement and besides, who gives a monkeys butt that the 360's graphics are better? the games arent looking to be that enjoyable *cough* *modern warfare 2* while this looks to be the visualy best wii game ever (or zelda wii 2 and other M)

  20. ILoveWii Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 22:19

    Never played Monster Hunter before but it's made by Capcom and once again they've done an astounding job of getting this to the West with free online and finally, another company to actually incorporate the very unused Wii Speak into its games. I might even pick up the device for this. Excellent, first day buy hopefully.

  21. Nelsonator15 Monday 11th Jan 2010 at 22:22

    Is this game like World of Warcraft at all? Cause it sounds a lot like it e.g. getting quests, killing monsters, survival skills etc. If it is I am definitely interested. Don't worry I'm not an addict or anything I just find WoW great fun. :P

    Graphics look amazing as well. Definitely keeping an eye on this.

    You are such a screwed up little chav! capcom release games on what consol they think will support it better, which summs up the fact that your ps3 is not good enough to support such a wonderfull game (get a grammer check please) and further more a load of people hate you now and would prefer you to go away.

    One question: Classic Controller support?

  24. D3KU_JUDD Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 at 00:24

    This looks insanley good.

  25. Violet Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 at 00:43

    Yes, they even had a special Classic Controller released for the game in Japan.

    the controller is already out here, i saw it in Game and Gamestation. I hope they do a special edition with the controller(already got a classic controller) in and other stuff.

    If it has wii speak then i don't need to buy a keyboard, but i might still buy one.

  27. Hughdude Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 at 11:11

    This looks so good :D. I never really wanted this game but now I really really want it. The online sounds very promising. I hope my broadband can cope. Would you say 3 mb is enough. Anyway this just looks so great. Maybe Im wrong but it reminds me slightly of fable 2. I don't have fable 2 but my friend does and I've played it but this sounds a lot better cause you get to kill massive monsters. This is the game that will get over MW2 not coming out on the wii :D

  28. Daz_Dagon Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 at 13:03

    COOL THE ONLINE IS FREE!
    I am so getting this on release date I hope asda sells it around Ł30...

    ha not good enough and you say the game is beutiful on the wii you are the kind of person who would deny i good game like uncharted 2 or gears of war purly becuase it came out on a superior console oh and for the record i would rather be a chav than a sad little c**t like you who spends his life wondering why he dont have a girlfriend and flammingabout how the wiis is "awsome"

  31. 02hollandj Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 at 15:53

    this is soon becoming my most wanted wii game ever,from what ive heard it literally sounds like the bestwii game ever!

  32. PsychoPikmin Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 at 16:38

    My God, this'll be awesome.

    This year is starting to look up for the Wii, this, Red Steel , Metroid and Zelda Wii being the main reasons why.

  33. Daz_Dagon Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 at 17:52

    Im not to sure how it works is it an adventure rpg? If so then this is perfect until zelda wii comes out.

    are you a moron, putting monster hunter on the PS3 will just make it like every other game where you press the buttons to make something happen while on the wii you get to use the motion controls to make you feel like your in control of the character, graphics are only a small part to do with games your obvioulsly a typical chav, i mean dude get a spell check, and if your saying we don't have live's then why are you replying to every comment made against you, oh and by the way i have plenty of friends and you wouldn't be able to look at porn due to the fact you wouldn't be clever enough to get onto to the internet, go annoy someone who cares :evil:

    ha not good enough and you say the game is beutiful on the wii you are the kind of person who would deny i good game like uncharted 2 or gears of war purly becuase it came out on a superior console oh and for the record i would rather be a chav than a sad little c**t like you who spends his life wondering why he dont have a girlfriend and flammingabout how the wiis is "awsome"


    1. Uncharted 2 is crap (i know, cos ive played it)
    2. Gears of War is fun but way too short, nowhere near original enough, and to be frank, i have seen prettier games on the Gamecube
    3. I am engaged to a woman and have plenty of friends, who own various consoles and i can have a mature discussion about each console's merits with them
    4. If you want to play a GREAT game, i would suggest Super Mario World for the SNES, but you probably wouldnt understand it because there are no guns and it doesnt come on a Blu-ray disc (which are already obsolete.....that means useless....)
    5. porn is fun
    6. the wii is INNOVATIVE. If it wasnt, microsoft and sony wouldnt be desperately trying to make motion-based controls of their own (also, sony's "effort" is a direct copy of the wiimote, with large luminous balls for a camera to pick up. funny thing is, it has LESS response than a standard wiimote!)
    7. i have been playing video games longer than you have probably been alive (and longer than you probably will be alive, judging by how many people youve managed to annoy). when it comes to games, ive seen it all and done it all, so between the two of us, im the only one who has any kind of valid opinion when it comes down to consoles and their software.
    8. the wii's hardware is capable of keeping pace with a 360, but only when the gaming engine is custom built for the console. thats why the first few games looked aweful but are gradually getting better. developers are realising that they have underestimated what the hardware can do

    His kind. I take that as an offence. But I agree with you on what you said. Let me talk to this guy. Y'know, Chav to Chav.

    Check bladz. If ur on a Ninta site ya can't tek p**s outta ninta, a'ight. Next ting. Wut de hell are ya doin' onna ninta site brov. Ya tink ya can tek p**s outta people here ya lost brov, lost. Go onta' anoda site, f**k ya girlfriend. Have a wank, get stuffed and go suicidal, prick. Just dan't come 'ere again bladz. Cool off, den I'll ask ya Waag Waan 'k. In a bit.

    There. Now first off, good on you that your engaged. Nice that you've got hell loads of gaming experience. Porn? Well I have more respect for girls (unless of course me and my girlfriend get really close, physically) but that's your own opinion. But don't dare judge every single chav. I'm a good guy here. You're obviously older than (Me? 14). But I can speak words of wisdom. In english and if you can decipher chav language. Lets see where this takes off.

    Buying this as soon as possible!!!!!! May just be my perfect game with all the things I'm hearing.
    BUTT LESS TROUSERS FTW

    it got a perfect review from that famitsu thing in Japan, and we've got a better version apparently:D

  41. Broken_Angel Wednesday 13th Jan 2010 at 17:31

    What a f**king mistake capcom made reason 1 this game has online co op and the wii's online is f**king horrible. 2nd i and there is no excuse other than nintendo being lazy batsrards and thats graphics im sure capcom will come to there sences and realease this on ps3 as it should have been just to reiterate the wii sucks monkey balls

    You are such a screwed up little chav! capcom release games on what consol they think will support it better, which summs up the fact that your ps3 is not good enough to support such a wonderfull game (get a grammer check please) and further more a load of people hate you now and would prefer you to go away.

    ha not good enough and you say the game is beutiful on the wii you are the kind of person who would deny i good game like uncharted 2 or gears of war purly becuase it came out on a superior console oh and for the record i would rather be a chav than a sad little c**t like you who spends his life wondering why he dont have a girlfriend and flammingabout how the wiis is "awsome"


    1. Uncharted 2 is crap (i know, cos ive played it)
    2. Gears of War is fun but way too short, nowhere near original enough, and to be frank, i have seen prettier games on the Gamecube
    3. I am engaged to a woman and have plenty of friends, who own various consoles and i can have a mature discussion about each console's merits with them
    4. If you want to play a GREAT game, i would suggest Super Mario World for the SNES, but you probably wouldnt understand it because there are no guns and it doesnt come on a Blu-ray disc (which are already obsolete.....that means useless....)
    5. porn is fun
    6. the wii is INNOVATIVE. If it wasnt, microsoft and sony wouldnt be desperately trying to make motion-based controls of their own (also, sony's "effort" is a direct copy of the wiimote, with large luminous balls for a camera to pick up. funny thing is, it has LESS response than a standard wiimote!)
    7. i have been playing video games longer than you have probably been alive (and longer than you probably will be alive, judging by how many people youve managed to annoy). when it comes to games, ive seen it all and done it all, so between the two of us, im the only one who has any kind of valid opinion when it comes down to consoles and their software.
    8. the wii's hardware is capable of keeping pace with a 360, but only when the gaming engine is custom built for the console. thats why the first few games looked aweful but are gradually getting better. developers are realising that they have underestimated what the hardware can do
    9. can someone PLEASE ban this chavvy little muppet? cos im sick of having to deal with him and his kind

    His kind. I take that as an offence. But I agree with you on what you said. Let me talk to this guy. Y'know, Chav to Chav.

    I'm sorry for offending you, but I didn't mean chavs when I said "his kind". I meant the hundreds of brain-dead trolls who just can't accept that the Wii has been underestimated and can actually do better than crappy Xbox ports.
    The porn comment was meant to be ironic because the idiot I was arguing with implied that all I do is watch it (I even had a funny and cutting response waiting for if/when he replies). I do actually have a lot of respect for women and can't stand people who objectify them.
    Yes, I am considerably older than you (24 this year) and have been considered a great gamer in my time (won plenty of tournaments on Unreal Tournament, GTA2 and Counterstrike, back in my day....now I do feel old)

    Anyways, back to topic: Monster Hunter Tri
    This game looks amazing and I've been following it with anticipation since the original announcement. That screenshot of the underwater dragon...thing is solid proof that 3rd party developers need to take the Wii more seriously

  42. NEO.BAHAMUT Wednesday 13th Jan 2010 at 20:28

    One question: Classic Controller support?


    Yes, they even had a special Classic Controller released for the game in Japan.

    Oh, wow, thanks for telling me. :)

    I can actually by this game now that I know it supports the Classic Controller. :D

    Very much appreciated, Violet! Thank you! :D

  43. Darkxaur Wednesday 13th Jan 2010 at 21:21

    If ONM's going to continue to use the word 'hardcore', I'm going to have to head over to ONM towers with my crowbar o' correction at some point.

    1. Have you actually taken a look at the screenshots? they are amazing. I know 360/PS3 owners who are drooling over this one.
    2. Have you ever actually used the Wii's online functions?
    They are quicker, simpler and easier to use than the online system for any other console.
    3. Do you actually have any grasp of the English language?
    If you're going to insult a console on an official site, at least have the good decency to make a well thought out, correctly phrased opinion. Furthermore, if you think the Wii "sucks monkey balls", why are you even on these forums? I have no problem with 360/PS3 owners on these forums, because the majority of them have at least some respect for the Wii and it's software.
    4. I believe the proper vernacular is "fornicating", not "f**king"

    wThe wiis online good ha your clearly some gimp who is to cheap to play a decent console so yeah screw you buddy

    No, I prefer games which provide a challenge with a plot and a story line. You are obviously a brain dead chav who only likes pretty pictures and maybe some glingly noises. If you saw the size of my game and console collection, you would know that im not cheap

    i would also know you have no friends and no life thus you spend your life looking for porn but fail to find it as you where too big a pussy to click on the url know go find something youself to do like hang yourself

    are you a moron, putting monster hunter on the PS3 will just make it like every other game where you press the buttons to make something happen while on the wii you get to use the motion controls to make you feel like your in control of the character, graphics are only a small part to do with games your obvioulsly a typical chav, i mean dude get a spell check, and if your saying we don't have live's then why are you replying to every comment made against you, oh and by the way i have plenty of friends and you wouldn't be able to look at porn due to the fact you wouldn't be clever enough to get onto to the internet, go annoy someone who cares :evil:

    Yes waving your arm around what fun

    I feel everyone has made a point about your attitude im just left to say jog on and get a life

    Sorry to disapoint, but i do have a girlfriend we both love playing on the wii together and actualy have a decent life together. I am obviosly wasting my time with some f****d up prick who relys only on things that involve a lot of blood shed and pointless gun shooting to the brain. infact go f***k yourself sideways.

  46. Daz_Dagon Wednesday 13th Jan 2010 at 22:44

    Capcom and nintendo have always been close why else did nintendo let them make several zelda games

  47. sivlock Friday 15th Jan 2010 at 13:36

    I think I saw some arcade games of this in the summer when I went to Butlins only picked up on the name don't know much about it but if it's decent im getting it, no doubt about it!

  48. Gothic_Geek Friday 15th Jan 2010 at 17:19

    High-fives to all who stood up to that stupid troll RonnieBoy2k8! :mrgreen:
    Trolls should be banned from t'internets, IMO (or at least this site)

    and... on topic: Soooooo excited for MH3, we should arrange games on this here forum, since none of my school friends have a higher opinion of the Wii than RonnieBoy! :P It'll be my first MMO (unless you count the demo of Phantasy Star Universe which was basically the full game but free AND AWESOME) so I'm sure I'll suck at it (as with most games!) but it'll be great! Anyway, did I mention I'm looking forward to Monster Hunter Tri? Yes? Ok then I'll stop now...

    GG Away :mrgreen: !!!!!

  49. adamwalker222 Sunday 17th Jan 2010 at 15:02

    You honestly don't know how much I'm looking forward to this game. I was hooked from the moment ONM started going on about it months ago, the screens just look fantastic, and the prospect of multiplayer..wow.

  50. python2000 Sunday 17th Jan 2010 at 16:54

    cant wait to aquire this!! from the read up of it to the astounding asthetics of the scenery and awesome game play itll be the best game out on the wii yet!!

  51. Nintendo Boy Sunday 17th Jan 2010 at 23:58

    I'm looking very foward to this game. I've got the PSP title (monster Hunter Freedom) too, and i'm glad to see a nice game dedicated to hard core gamers, rather than casual games which are crap.

  52. Renin Sunday 24th Jan 2010 at 16:41

    This will be ace. It's awesome. It's new for me. The Wii, well, this generation has nothing else like it (bar the MH on PSP though that's not meant to be anywhere near as good).

    The Monster Hunter on psp is amazing...

    They're taking out several very good features for Tri, but I'd say Capcom will add just as much if not more for this one :D

    They better :evil:

  53. master sword Wednesday 27th Jan 2010 at 22:54

    looking foward to this a friend at college has played the previous games in the series, so hopefully this will be too, beautiful screenshots as well IMO, reminds me of shadow of the collosus for some reason (not that thats a bad thing) :)

  54. alexo17 Sunday 31st Jan 2010 at 10:22

    I played Monster Hunter on PSP. Good game but i find the combat buttons are quite annoying. Do you agree?

    However, I'm really excited about MH3 wii.
    Can't wait :D

  55. Kirgandian Monday 1st Feb 2010 at 18:11

    These kind of games allow us Nintendo-Fanboys to have a game to point to when people say "The Wii's a casual console" or "The Wii has low graphics capacity". Umm, hello? This game has gore, it has monsters, it has giant weapons that you chop up the aforementioned monsters with, hence creating the aforementioned gore. You call that "casual"? EHEH! Wrong answer! And bad graphics? An even bigger EHEH! An even wronger answer! (Wronger...is that even a word?)

    (On a side note, how do you call a console that has a Silent Hill, a kiddies' console? Yeesh.)

    Between Tatsunoko, Monster Hunter Tri, Shattered Memories, Metroid: Other M, 'Zelda Wii', The Grinder, Red Steel 2 and No More Heroes 2, this is shaping up to be the year that Nintendo reclaims its fans that it lost.

  56. radish head Monday 1st Feb 2010 at 18:40

    I'm so happy :D

    The Wii is finally getting a game that makes it a console to be proud of owning. It'd better not be sold onto multiplatforms :evil:

  57. Marpy Monday 1st Feb 2010 at 19:23

    to Ronnieboy2k8 i shall quote some frankie boyle go grab a pair of keys and "LOOK AT THE SHINY SHINY"

  58. Renin Monday 1st Feb 2010 at 19:28

    *Sigh*
    I'm dissapointed Capcom have not only taken out the bow, but also the gunlance and my own favourite weapons, dual blades :(
    Hopefully there'll be much added to make up for this...
    At least it has amazing graphics

  59. ILoveWii Monday 1st Feb 2010 at 21:19

    (It got 40/40 in Famitsu)

    That doesn't particularly matter, Famitsu are bad at reviewing.

    Nintendogs got a 40/40, FFS...

  60. Jojordan12 Wednesday 17th Feb 2010 at 21:27

    LOL Better plug the wii back in then*, this game looks awsome


    * only unplugged since i was on holiday xD

    What a f**king mistake capcom made reason 1 this game has online co op and the wii's online is f**king horrible. 2nd i and there is no excuse other than nintendo being lazy batsrards and thats graphics im sure capcom will come to there sences and realease this on ps3 as it should have been just to reiterate the wii sucks monkey balls

    first of all,i want to say that i just cant wait for this game .

    now,down to my point,
    what is wrong with u?
    the wii's online is crap? im not even sure u have ever played a wii never mind own one.the online is not "horibble" as u say.its brilliant. I think that mario kart one of the best online games i have ever seen!!!!it has never lagged or disconected me once.its brilliant.
    ur second point
    from my point of veiw,u need some sortof glasses.U think these graphics are crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant belive u!!!!!these grapics are some of the best graphics iv ever seen.
    i dont know wat ur doing on these forums,if u think that the PS3 is better than the wii.go on some PS3 forum and talk to them! i think that some of them would want to get a wii because of this!!!! A LOT OF PEOPLE DISAGREE WITH U,u cant win.
    i rest my case
