Capcom and Pure Imagination Studios producing Monster Hunter 3D animated special

Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, and Pure Imagination Studios, the award-winning independent micro-studio that combines proprietary technology with groundbreaking storytelling are in production on a computer graphics animated special that will expand upon the universe of “Monster Hunter™,” Capcom’s blockbuster game series. The two companies will produce and co-finance the special with Pure Imagination overseeing domestic and international sales. Joshua Fine (“Ultimate Spider-Man” (STARZ)) wrote the special. Production will be completed this Winter and the special is expected to premiere globally in 2019.

The 3D animated special, dubbed “Monster Hunter™: Legends of the Guild,” tells the story of a brave young man determined to prove himself as a monster hunter worthy of recognition. His chance will come all too soon when he discovers that his remote village lies in the path of an Elder Dragon—a veritable force of nature made flesh.

“We are thrilled to return fans to the universe of “Monster Hunter” and expand the series’ rich lore,” said Monster Hunter Series Producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto. “We think die-hard fans will appreciate our dedication to the source material while those uninitiated to the series will still be treated to an epic adventure in a wholly unique world.”

Developed and published by Capcom, the “Monster Hunter” series of games has shipped more than 48 million units to players around the world since its initial release in 2004. “Monster Hunter™: World,” the franchise’s latest release in the series, has shipped more than 8 million units worldwide (including digital download sales), now making it Capcom’s fastest selling title in the company’s history of making blockbuster games.

“At Pure Imagination, we focus on building content driven eco-systems and experiences that can live across multiple platforms of engagement,” said John P. Roberts, Chief Content Officer, Pure Imagination Studios. “With Monster Hunter, our talented and diverse group of animators, storytellers and producers, who have created content for LEGO, Marvel and Star Wars, are collaborating with Capcom to create a powerful and engaging story universe to serve its enormous global fanbase,” he continued.

Capcom on Mega Man 11 - Bringing back Mega Man, keeping the series fresh, the Gear System, and balancing difficulty

A portion of a Famitsu interview with producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and director Koji Oda, as translated by NintendoEverything...

F: This is the first game in the series since Mega Man 10, eight years ago. Can you tell us about your decision to make another game?

Tsuchiya: When Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was close to completion (Koji) Oda came to me and said, “Why don’t we do a Mega Man game next? Mega Man has fans all over the world who are hoping for a new game in the series. I think we have a responsibility to answer those calls. We have to do Mega Man next!” This was a chance for us to honor our responsibility to the fans.

F: Could you tell us a little bit about the concept for the game?

Tsuchiya: While we want to create that feeling of nostalgia for some of our long-time fans, if we only think like that then younger gamers may end up seeing Mega Man as a kind of ‘game for granddads’, and the series will eventually fade away. Instead, we want anyone, regardless of experience with the series, to be able to enjoy playing the game. For that reason, this time we wanted to redefine the Mega Man series, while still staying true to the original.

Oda: I feel the same way as Tsuchiya in not simply wanting to revive the series, but to add a newness to a game that people can still recognize at once as Mega Man. I think that was the key thing we kept in mind.

F: What was the reason behind introducing the new ‘Gear System’?

Oda: I think Mega Man’s strength is in its simplicity. Precisely because it is simple, we have players who are able to complete the game quickly and without taking damage. But there are those who are not familiar with Mega Man with the impression that the game is very difficult and that the learning curve is extremely high. But then if we excessively lower the difficulty, players won’t be able to enjoy that tension the game is so good at providing. So in the end we created the Double Gear System, within which there is the Speed Gear and the Power Gear. The Gear System is on one hand a way for beginners to play more skilfully, but also a system for players to truly see their skills in action.

F: Balancing the difficulty in the Mega Man stages seems like a difficult task.

Oda: Since this is another game with its base in the action game genre, if we simply recreated the kind of stages that had been in the series up until now, it wouldn’t be that difficult. But because we have added the Gear System, we have to think more carefully. That was really tough, and we were sometimes left thinking, “Why did we ever add this?” I think we sort of cursed ourselves. (wry laugh)
