Monster Hunter Tri Lecture, New Screens

Not a big fan of school?  Well, perhaps even the most anti-education gamer would have liked to attend Capcom’s Monster Hunter Tri University event this past Tuesday in San Francisco.  The event featured several Capcom “professors” lecturing “students” on the basics of the Monster Hunter formula.  The “teachers” were given chalkboards where they could draw different monsters and items from the game and explain them in detail to the classroom of would-be Monster Hunters.

In other Monster Hunter news, it is still unknown whether or not Capcom will enforce the pay-and-play service that is prominent in the Monster Hunter games in Japan.  As of this writing, it appears that the game will indeed feature online play, but whether or not gamers will have to pay a fee to play the game through the interweb is still in the air.  Capcom expressed their opinions, stating that they hoped to make the game playable online for free, but only time will tell if players must pay for online functionality or not.

In more Monster Hunter online news, the developers are still unsure as to the status of Wii Speak for online play.  Capcom made it clear that they hoped to implement the feature into the game but couldn’t promise anything.  Hopefully, they’re able to do so, as it would be a great addition to the game.  If not, then maybe the fourth time will be the charm.

So, there you have it, Monster Hunter loyalists.  Whereas most games only get a bit of coverage per article, this writer was caring enough to provide you with three stories all wrapped into one!  Consider it an early Christmas present.  Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, below are some new screenshots of the game for you to drool over.  Enjoy!
