  • Monster Hunter Franchise Developers To Future Expand Series’ Without Changing Their Approach to the Games
  • Monster Hunter Developers Future Game Expand 



We want to expand Monster Hunter but without compromising on its core vision. Said the producer Ryozo Tsujimoto.
Speaking to Destructoid at PAX West 2019, Tsujimoto said that although Monster Hunter‘s player base has expanded, especially due to the global success of Monster Hunter: World, there are “still so many people” who don’t know about the franchise. However, he believes it’s just a matter of figuring out how to attract new players while retaining the developers’ approach to the game.
  • Regardless of the success of Monster Hunter: World, we’ve always taken the approach of focusing on two things: action and communication. Regardless of what we work on in the future, I feel like that’s a foundation we’re probably not going to change. We also understand that we do have a bigger player base, and yet, there are still so many people who don’t know about the franchise. I think our approach to the games isn’t going to change, but it’s a matter of figuring out how to broaden our audience. For example, more events, different entertainment tie-ins such as a movie, kind of looking at it from a broader perspective.
When asked his views on the upcoming next-gen platforms and the possibility of cross-platform play, Tsujimoto said that the team is fully focused on Iceborne and that he’s against the idea of “shoehorning something in for the sake of it.
