Monster Hunter game director says the movie adaptation will 'probably satisfy players'

Not exactly the strongest vote of confidence

Will Monster Hunter's movie adaptation end up being any good? We won't know until it hits theaters, and that's not happening until Sept. 2020. Can anyone instill fans with some faith about the film? Here's what Monster Hunter game director Kaname Fujiok had to say when asked about his thoughts on the movie.

“Honestly, we haven’t watched it either yet (laughs), but we did discuss with the director and CG production team many times, and we could feel that they were thinking of the fans when making the movie, so the final result should probably satisfy players. Obviously a game and a movie will present itself differently, but the director is a professional, and we also feel his respect for Monster Hunter, so I hope players will look forward to that too.”

Rumors of a new Monster Hunter game for Switch start to swirl

Last week, we found out that Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate sold over 1.2 million units on Switch. Fans were really impressed to see the game hit that total, as it's just a port of a previous game, and Capcom did little-to-no promotion for it. Could you imagine what would happen if Capcom actually created a new Monster Hunter game for Switch and advertised it? Rumor has it we won't have to imagine it for much longer.

Various sources are coming out of the woodwork to spread rumor of a new Monster Hunter game coming to Switch. Apparently the title could be revealed sometime next month, if all goes according to plan.

With how big the Monster Hunter franchise is right now, revealing a new title for Switch could be quite a momentous occasion. Let's hope this rumor ends up being spot-on.
