  • That box looks like something Blizzard would put out.

    Also, holy crap: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kjitHnTfRA

      wow ur right. and im so happy after reading my wall o text ur still interested in this title it seems! i’d be more than happy to hunt with ya when this game comes out.
      and yeah it does look very much like something blizz would put out. i ashamed i own those too i shoulda saved my cash lol.

      the new trailer really gave me a glimpse of these new monsters. they seem to behave strangly. i remember capcom saying something like adding an ecosystem where monsters will move from zone to zone instead of using spawning and also fight eachother if they are of hostile relations etc.

      some of the existing mosnters look really amazing now i thought this was just a high rez version of the PSP title but i guess i was wrong im more than happy graphic wise.

      i notice a little guy who cooks with u. u get a cat companion in unite i wonder if that is a new thingy.

      also did you guys know the music for this game is awesome because they were compoased by some really great composers? Masato Kouda (Dungeons & Dragons, Wild Arms), Tetsuya Shibata (Devil May Cry, Power Stone), and Mitsuhiko Takano (The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, Gotcha Force) did a collaborative effort to create the game’s music.
      the music is def something that helped me stay with this game in the beginning. and im hoping the OST comes to US also!

      • Ooh, I like the roster of music composers. And monsters moving from area to area in realtime instead of spawning sounds like a neat feature to throw in if they’re aiming for a proper, functional ecosystem running in the background. :)

    It probably wont be released until next year…….

    If they bring the classic controller pro package here, that’s the one I’ll get.
    Really looking forward to that controller! The standard classic controller is not the most ergonomic thing ever.

    • Craiji

      Classic Controller Pro has an official japanese release date 8/1 (go figure) and price: 2000 yen (200 yen more than the classic controller)
