Monster Hunter Meet Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

imageEarly scans of Famitsu have a look at a Metal Gear Solid x Monster Hunter collaboration. Screenshots show a group of Snakes hunting Monster Hunter beasts Tigrex and Rathalos inside Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

 

Felynes, the helpful cat creatures, are in Konami’s game too. They act as support characters. Kojima’s team even worked burning meat into the Metal Gear Solid universe. When Snake cooks meat it turns into rations.

 

This collaboration is sure to be a hit in Japan where Monster Hunter and Metal Gear Solid are hot ticket items. Monster Hunter isn’t as big in the West. Could Naked Snake bring it to the masses?

      I’ll personally kill Hideo Kojima if he made a joke out of this.

      BECAUSE, THIS, IS AWESOME.

    rar, I saw this earlier — first I get an MH3 demo in the mail from a friend, then I win a Lost Planet 2 key THEN the most badass impossible !@#$ing thing I could have possibly asked for, Big Boss fighting freakin’ dinosaurs. Today has been like a christmas, a wonderful impossible fictional christmas where nothing really has to make sense any more, it just has to all kinds of badass and awesomeee. Konami, Capcom, I present you all my internets, you have won them TwT”

    There’s a Peace Walker press conference going on now and some guy from Square Enix is apparently there. I guess their little surprise is that Peace Walker is going to have something from Final Fantasy in it.

    Edit: That was disappointing after all the other cross overs and promotions. Square Enix is just doing figures for Peace Walker.

    This is a calculated guess but now that Capcom and Konami are collaborating, Snake and Raiden could indeed make cameos in Lost Planet 2. Ask and look on many different forums online and you can see Snake and Raiden are the most popular. This is only a direct response of the XBOX 360 version of LP2 getting Fenix and Dom from Gears of War series.
