Monster Hunter film director says the project is 'fully entrenched' in the game's world, features monsters from throughout the series

What we've seen of the Monster Hunter movie so far has left fans wondering just how related to the game franchise it will be. Do fans have a reason to worry? If Director Paul W.S. Anderson is to be believed, the film will do more than enough to appease fans. Here's what Anderson had to say about the adaptation in a Slashflim interview.

...the movie has a lot of characters from the video game in it. There’s The Handler and Admiral, Aiden, Aiden’s Handler. We wanted Palico. It’s very much a movie of the video game, but in Monster Hunter you get to create your own character when you go in there. You don’t get to play Lara Craft or Jill Valentine. You get to play your own creation, and there is definitely an element of that in there. Some of the leading characters will be fresh characters but that’s a reflection of what the video game is. It’s definitely a movie that is firmly and fully entrenched in the world of the video game, as you would expect with me having worked with Capcom for nine years on adapting it and bringing it to the screen.

Anderson went on to talk about the various monsters that will appear as well.

Listen, I don’t need to create any new monsters. There’s such a vast array of amazing creatures over the years. We’re leaning quite heavily on the favorite creatures from Monster Hunter World which is the latest game, but we’re also bringing in what I think are some of the fabulous monsters from some of the earlier games and well, and some of the imagery from the earlier games. So I think for fans of Monster Hunter World, you’ll recognize that world and the characters from that world very much, but also it’ll be a callback to some of the favorite moments and creatures from some of the earlier games, which hopefully will get people excited to check out those earlier games as well because there’s some magnificent imagery and monsters in those earlier games as well that I think a lot of people who have just played Monster Hunter World may not be aware of.

Capcom says Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version was released for 'technological research,' still deciding whether to release more cloud games

Capcom has talked a bit more about Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version, which was released for Switch in Japan awhile back. According to an internal Q&A, Capcom put the game out as a bit of technological research, and it didn't have a significant impact on earnings.

"While we did release a certain title supporting cloud gaming in the first half, this was done primarily for technological research purposes and did not have a significant impact on earnings. Based on the results of the research, we will internally consider further expansion into cloud gaming."

This isn't the first time Capcom has said that they'll consider more cloud versions of games for the Switch. We'll just have to hang tight and see what decision they make once they feel like sharing.

Thanks to Sligeach_eire for the heads up!
