Why does it look so bad? Going by the video thumbnail it looks very low-poly and pretty low-res textures too. Why do Monster Hunter games always seem to look so dated and kinda ugly? It seems to be suffering 'Kingdom Hearts Syndrome': It's developer not ever letting it leave the (in this case very early) PS2 era in the visual department.

Well for starters it's more of an update to mhfonline, or it was first announced as such and not as a standalone console game. Then they announced it was going to be released on consoles as well so it's more like they're taking the opportunity to bring it to consoles. So it's a very last gen game anyway, it never ever pretended to be the new flagship title for the series. Monhun4 is. This is more of an online spin-off.

And also it's supposed to be very online oriented which very often equals to cheaper graphics like in any other MMOs.

This was based on MH game for PC.

This was supposed to be a expansion for that game, but then they decided to release it as standalone game for PS3 and Wii U.

I think that Capcom wanted to make a game that would run in any PC and that's the reason why the visuals are so basic.

The costumes are a cool idea, but it seems like porting this game is a waste of time that would be better spent making a "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" for Wii U.
