Latest Monster Hunter movie image shows Milla Jovovich wielding the Dual Blades

Slice and dice!

A new image for the Monster Hunter movie has been shared, and it shows Milla Jovovich doing her thing with the Dual Blades. In an interview with Empire, both Jovovich and director Paul WS Anderson share some details on the decision to include this weapon.

“I wrote the role of Artemis for Milla as the avatar for the player, so she could be a grounded, relatable real-world character who is fresh to the world of Monster Hunter. Although Milla’s character’s not specifically in the game, she chose the same armour and weapons she uses in the game, so there were aspects of her game character that got folded into the movie representation.” - Paul WS Anderson

“I experimented with different weapons during the game and was able to kill more monsters with those blades,” says Jovovich. “I thought they’d look really beautiful in an action sequence.” - Milla Jovovich

What in the world?!

If you were still holding out hope that Capcom would bring Monster Hunter World to Switch, you can officially let that hope go now.

After that, Capcom was asked about a Monster Hunter title that was aimed at middle school/high school kids, similar to what was available for the PSP years ago. The team did confirm that they have plans for something like that, but didn't mention any platforms in particular.

Resident Evil series hits 100 million units shipped

That's a lot of zombies

The Resident Evil series debuted back in the PS1 days, and it's been an amazing powerhouse for Capcom ever since. The series sales just keep piling up, and Capcom has confirmed that a new milestone has been hit.

Across all releases and re-releases, all platforms and versions, Resident Evil has managed to scrape together 100 million units shipped. This is the first franchise under Capcom's umbrella to do so. You can see Capcom's note on the series' success below.

In 1996, Capcom established the survival horror game genre with the series’ debut title, Resident Evil, which featured gameplay in which players utilize a variety of weapons and other items to escape terrifying situations. Through the years Capcom has leveraged its Single Content Multiple Usage strategy to take the series beyond games, expanding the brand into Hollywood film adaptations and theme park attraction collaborations. The Resident Evil franchise has since grown into Capcom’s flagship property, continuously supported by a passionate fan base from across the globe since the first title was released 24 years ago, with more than 80% of unit sales of the games coming from outside of Japan.

In recent years, Capcom has pursued a digital sales strategy, expanding its customer segments by extending the life of games with flexible pricing strategies in more than 250 different countries and regions. For the Resident Evil series in particular, becoming the first Capcom series to surpass the 100-million-units-sold milestone came as a result of a number of factors; in addition to maintaining a consistent release schedule for new titles, Capcom utilized cutting-edge technology to reimagine beloved hits, such as with Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, while carrying out price promotions for back catalog titles timed in conjunction with new title launches. Going forward Capcom looks to further grow the franchise by leveraging its accumulated know-how to launch games on next-generation platforms. This includes the recently announced latest core game in the series, Resident Evil Village, the sequel to the cumulative 7.5-million-unit selling Resident Evil 7 biohazard.
