Monster Hunter is one of those franchises I've always been interested in but never actually really liked playing the few times I've tried getting into it.

If this indeed does end up being the Western focused Monster Hunter I'm damn interested.

It is a game and its not an MMO and its not for mobile.

Its also going to cause meltdowns, from all sides.

Ok? so no MH5?

I mean I don't get why folks are getting so hung up on the name. If this was paid for by Sony to be an exclusive they might not actually want a 5 at the end of the name, it creates the impression that folks who didn't play other games in the series missed out.

It's a Monster Hunter spinoff. Almost every console has gotten them. The PS2, PS3 and 360. They've always been different from the main, numbered, entries

Or it's Monster Hunter 5 in everything but name, with a more Western focus. It makes sense to establish a new name/subtitle if they want to introduce the game to new audiences.

I don't see why they'd change the name of the Chinese MMO (Monster Hunter Online). Imo it's the western focused MH. Well, whatever it is I hope it gets revealed at E3 and we don't have to wait more.

Oh okay, I was going to mention that the rumour sounded like it was internally developed and not just porting over the Monster Hunter MMO from Tencent.

This will be interesting.

Or, it's a console "online" (although the distinction is meaningless now that the main series has online) spinoff like they literally did with Monster Hunter Online, Online Frontier and Frontier G

I kind of doubt it's the mmo since it would totally bomb here.

Yeah. I would buy a Monster Hunter for a current gen console. Just out of interest, I've never played one myself.

So what happens to your statement when 5 is revealed next year?

MH5, perhaps? Or more specifically, MH5 renamed. Either that or it's MHXX's localized name.

It's that westernized Monster Hunters game that some people wanted lol.
Why would they call Generations's expansion World, or rename 5 when 4 was a success?

The twist is Monster Hunter World ends up being XX's localized name and everyone has a jolly laugh. I'm probably gonna be in day 1 for every Monster Hunter that hits consoles regardless of what happens.

The excitement over this rumor has always been so odd.

Capcom Makes A Westernized Monster Hunter that apparently even their own people have no faith in so the Main Monster Hunter team goes to work on a new Switch Game.

So its a spin off by people that aren't even the primary MH team
