Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak gets an official music video parody in Japan
I don't understand a single word, but it's damn catchy!
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is now available on Switch, and Capcom is spreading the word worldwide. Here in the states, Capcom has been sharing trailers and promo videos through social media, but things are a little bit different in Japan. For the Japanese audience, Capcom has put together a special music video.
The music video, seen above, parodies the Japanese pop song “Matsuken Samba.” The video features Ken Matsudaira in his iconic gold kimono, and it’s proven to be quite a hit with Japanese audiences, as it’s already pulled in over 500k views.
The “Matsuken Samba” is a Japanese pop song and comedy routine that rose to popularity in the early 2000s. Ken Matsudaira is a famous actor who has appeared in various period dramas, and his latest roll has brought him to the world of Monster Hunter. In the Sunbreak song, Matsudaira uses a play on words, replacing the word “Samba” with “Sunbreak.”
