Monster Hunter producer shares how the franchise came to be, difference in popularity between Japan/NA

A portion of a Game Informer interview with series producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto...

Game Informer: How did the original idea for Monster Hunter come about?

Ryozo Tsujimoto: Back when I belonged to the team in the old days, we were trying to establish three new online titles for home consoles; these were Auto Modellista, Resident Evil Outbreak, and Monster Hunter. I was one of the game designers on Auto Modellista. Monster Hunter was designed based on the concept of a “multi-action online game that anyone can join and play,” and we made full use of Capcom’s best action game talent.

GI: While it has found an audience in North America, Monster Hunter hasn’t reached the same heights in popularity as Japan. Why do you think this is?

RT: Japan is a country made up of small islands, and this gives us an environment wherein people tend to gather rather closely together thanks to the well-developed public transportation system we have with our train and bus lines. Therefore, it’s easy for word of mouth to spread while people are playing together via an ad-hoc connection on their portable gaming devices. I think the environment was really well suited for building the fan base we now enjoy and for encouraging people to play with one another.

In the U.S., the environment and culture may not be as well suited to this type of play, and that has led to it not being quite as popular yet. That said, we are aware of a growing multitude of really strong and tight-knit communities that have sprung up in the States, and we know that they hold their own events on the local level. We treasure these dedicated communities, and I sincerely hope that these veterans will usher in a new group of fans to enjoy Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.
