I believe the leaked video is still up here, but my phone doesn't like 22 minute mp4s: https://u.nya.is/fzyrht.mp4

How do you view the relationship between Monster Hunter: World and the other Monster Hunter games? Is this a spinoff, or a main title?

Ryozo Tsujimoto: This is the next main Monster Hunter game. Our Osaka team is working on it. We've brought in some people who are more familiar with next-gen technology to come in and help us adapt it for the current generation of consoles. When you have a series that runs into the higher numbers, I think the numbers themselves start to become off-putting. New players might think, "Oh, I've missed four games already, I can't possibly join at this point." Just because we've taken the number off the title doesn't mean it's not a main Monster Hunter game. We just wanted to have "world" in the title because it speaks to the concept of the game in a variety of ways. This is the first simultaneous worldwide release for the game, and the servers are global this time.

The leaked video was great, bad quality but it 100% put me on board for this Monster Hunter.

Also great reasoning on not calling it 5

So basically what most of us assumed. Monster Hunter 5 will confuse people thinking the missed the past 4 games while World sounds better. It is still the next mainline game.

I partially expect the G version (if there is one) to be on switch. It'll be the 3G to world's Tri.

That makes at least two different answers on the name already. I'm interested in seeing how many more pop up before release.

I still would absolutely not be surprised if they eventually release a MH5, and have it be in the traditional style though.

I dont think it really matters all that much

What matters is that we have a Next gen multiplatform MH game

Holy crap man I hope it takes off. Its looking very very good

What was the first answer? Or do you mean both of the explanations given in the OP? Trying to make sure that I didn't miss a previous discussion regarding MHW's title

They should have just been honest. "Just in case this shit bombs or underperforms we don't want to completely damage the brand." Is a much better and realistic answer.

One reason I'm expecting Metroid Prime 4 to drop the 4, unless they release a trilogy.

But even then I have feeling, It's not going to be have the "4". Of course I could be entirely wrong.

Don't believe Capcom's lies. There had been Monster Hunter games on consoles before and they were never as successful as the portable ones.
Expect the real MH5 on the Switch or something portable once this fake MH5 underperformes.

Man I really can't wait to play this game. Grappling hook and the movement it provides opens up huge possibilities. Plus it doesn't use PS2 tier assets anymore, so that's always good.

Originally, it was going to be called "Monster Hunter 5", but the development team really liked the name, "World" (Japanese ワールド).

So why has Assassin's Creed drop the numbers? Or COD?

I don't think the number matter much, either, but I guess that's what I'm getting at: there's really not a good reason that they've given for this not to be called Monster Hunter 5. I think that most of us can probably guess the real reason why it isn't, but Capcom is obviously not going to be at liberty to mention why.

Especially for MH where story is irrelevant and you can just jump into any entry if you are new to the series.

Watch the leaked footage, look at the development team, and then realize that this is the next Monster Hunter generation.

CoD still uses them to some extent, at least as far as Black Ops is concerned. Couldn't tell you why with Assassin's Creed, though since there's not as big an emphasis on the modern day antics in the more recent games, there was perhaps a concentrated effort on Ubi's part to try and steer it away from the mess that the Desmond games made in terms of being able to follow along.

It's pretty obvious why they aren't calling it Monster Hunter 5.
Didn't hurt GTA3.

But I see what he means. I think it's a good idea actually, gives consumers a better sense of the game's scale.

And yeah, his answer mostly covers the presumptions I made in one of the MH:W threads, that it's not numbered simply because they don't want to scare off potential new customers, hopefully an official statement will finally convince some sceptics that there's no grand conspiracy here and it really is that simple.

What still baffles me is how Capcom claims the series up till now failed in the west, when all of their changes/approaches with World show that they never really gave a shit about properly promoting it in the west. Why did they never once attempt a worldwide release or servers before? Why did they largely leave it to Nintendo to publish/promote the game, especially in Europe? This company is a fucking mess

If it meets their expectations, they'll probably continue with the MHW branding and platforms.

If it fails to meet their expectations, they'll probably just make the Switch games multiplatform going forward.
