Monster Hunter has been known for its various collaborations over the past few years. In fact, with Monster Hunter X we’ve already heard about Capcom’s plans to team up with Tetsuya Nomura and the Sanrio mascot Kirimi-chan. Weekly Shonen Champion reveals another collaboration in its latest issue.

Monster Hunter X will have a collaboration featuring the anime Yowamushi Pedal. On the cover shown above, a Felyne is depicted in Sohoku’s bicycle racing club uniform, and we also see a chibi Akira Midousuji. Specific details about the collaborations are under wraps for now.

The latest episode of Capcom TV was held earlier today, and it gave us another look at Monster Hunter X. We’ve embedded the video below. It should kick off right where the Monster Hunter X footage begins.

Capcom prepared an official set of screenshots from Monster Hunter X today. The images include the Nyanter Mode which we previously covered as well as Tamamitsune, one of the four main monsters. You can find all of the images below, along with a single shot of Keiryuu (mountain stream area).

Tamamitsune is an agile creature who can use the “Water Breath” attack, which gives players a status ailment. This covers the hunter’s body in foam, causing them to slip and slide on the ground.

Thanks to Famitsu, we have a number of new screenshots of Monster Hunter X’s Nyanter Mode. We’ve rounded up the images below.


Many games in Japan these days receive their own soundtrack, and that’s no different with Monster Hunter X.

On December 16, Capcom will ship the two-disc Monster Hunter X soundtrack, which comes with a total of 42 songs. Pricing is set at 3,000 yen.

Uratani Reo, coming from BlackLute, is leading the way on the soundtrack. Confirmed tracks include Beruna Village, Ancient Forest, and songs for the four main monsters.
