The team behind Monster Hunter X shared even more details about the game while speaking with Famitsu in an interview. Mainly, series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and director Yasunori Ichinose spoke about how this new title differs from previous entries in the series.

Here’s the latest information:

– No underwater areas
– Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate’s Frenzied monsters and Guild Quests will not be returning
– This is because Capcom wants to emphasize the elements that will be unique to Monster Hunter X
– Verna Village is unique to X
– The village is more open and spacious compared to previous Monster Hunter villages that have a warm and dense feel
– The kind of life depicted in Verna is different from past Monster Hunter titles
– This difference in ambiance extends right from the colors of the village all the way to the way it’s designed for players
– Capcom somewhat emphasized interactions with non-villager beings for Verna Village
– Among these is the herbivorous “Moofer” species that is kept in Verna
– The worldview of Verna is unrelated to the prior Monster Hunter games
– This is because it’s important to create a unique worldview for each Monster Hunter title
– Verna will also be the only village in Monster Hunter X with a Guild Hall that is used to access multiplayer
– Can travel between multiple villages like in 4 Ultimate
– Do so via a hot-air balloon
– Part of some sort of ecosystem investigation that you will be carrying out through the course of your adventure
– Why you’re investigating the ecosystem is related to the game’s story
– Information will be revealed at regular intervals
– With the new details, players will begin to get some idea of just how the game plays
– When they actually get to play it for themselves, hopefully they’ll say: “Oh? It’s different from what I imagined, but it’s interesting!”
– Capcom wants to have a more personal hunting experience with the customization options
– They want to betray people’s expectations in a good way
