In Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, you’ll be operating out of Yukumo Village. In case you need to get caught up on past updates on the area, here’s our past coverage:

 

Yukumo Village’s Farm and Felynes

Yukumo Village’s Bathhouse and Quest Area

 

Now, let’s take a look at something that looked a little shabby in Monster Hunter Tri, but looks a bit more inviting in Portable 3rd: your home.

Your home serves a number of functions. You can save your game, change the look of your character, and manage your party’s equipment.

 

Bookshelf:

You can read issues of “Live to Hunt” magazine at your bookshelf, which offers useful tips and advice. You can also read up hairstyle advice if that’s your thing.

 

Felyne Board:

Meanwhile, the Felyne board is used to manage the looks and equipment of your Felyne partners.

 

As we detailed in a previous report, you can put these guys through training to customize them with their own unique stats and skills. Equipment will play an important part in shaping their abilities, too.

 

Bed and Equipment Box:

Save your game and manage your own equipment and items.

 

Customization:

Your home is also where you customize your character’s features and hairstyle. Portable 3rd appears to feature an increased number of options for customizing your hunter’s face, but these haven’t been revealed yet.

And that about wraps up your home in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd! We’ll have more info as Capcom continue to make it available in the weeks leading up to the game’s December 1st release.

    I hope there’s some size/height distinction between male and females. The females in the previous games looks huge compared to males.

    I just played the demo. I wish I had Freedom Unite right now. It will be good for preparing for this game.

    2011 will be an awesome PSP year :)

    I’m really hoping this will be the MS that hooks me into the series. I struggled with Freedom Unite…

    The demo is great, it’s good training XD. I love the look of pretty much everything in this one, I’m very impressed. Especially with the monster designs.
