Monster Hunter Portable 3rd’s Farm And Felynes Are A Return To Form

The last time we covered Monster Hunter Portable 3rd’s Yukumo Village, we caught a glimpse of your base of operations at the bathhouse and quest area where you recharge your hunter’s batteries and prepare for quests.


This time, let’s take a look at the Yukumo Farm, which, like past Monster Hunter games, allows you to grow crops, gather items, train Felynes, and also go fishing, which was a feature removed from the farm in Monster Hunter Tri.



Portable 3rd also features the return of mining for ore at the farm, which is far more convenient than it was in Tri, where all ore-gathering activity took place outside of town.



The standout feature of Yukumo Farm, however, is collaboration with Felynes. Felynes can assist you with all sorts of activities at Yukumo farm, such as catching insects, gathering honey and mushrooms, taking care of crops and so on.



They’ll even help you cook more meat in one go.

Felynes in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd can be trained to have their own unique stats and equipment as well. You can up their defense with some solid weight training, while chopping wood helps them raise their “Attack” stat. Felynes can also be taught different skill combinations to make each one unique.



Completing quests allows you to build up Yukumo Points. These points can be used to expand your farm further.

  • it really seems like the cut a lot of corners on Tri. This version seems to well thought out in every way. Come on Capcom make a console version, and go all out on it.

      Hmm I wouldn’t say Tri cut any corners, more so I think it tried doing stuff in a different manor, and more simplistic manor in most instances there’s very little you couldn’t do in Tri that you could do in MHFU. The big difference between the two games more so is just the amount of monsters, quests, weapons, and armor.

    This game is set to be pretty much awesome. I was mildly disappointed in MH3, but this looks like a return to form.

    The demo is great, I’ve played it more than once for each weapon type XD I usually play a demo once and that’s it. I haven’t killed that Icy thing, I always run out of time.

    “Felynes can assist you with all sorts of activities at Yukumo farm, such as catching insects” Thank god, getting an item drop from one of those wasps is so hard. I hope that’s what it means.

  • Yes!! Glad to hear this, I never got the hang ofbthe farm on tri so I’m glad they are going back to the old farm. ^_^
