Right next to the Star Ferry exit, Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong held a Monster Hunter Portable 3rd festival. The event took place inside Harbour City, a popular shopping mall populated with fashion boutiques like Beams t-shirts.

 

Two Felyne statues greeted attendees to the event. Inside there were stands running Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and plenty of seats for ad-hoc meetups.

These photos were taken at the end of the day and most players gathered at a nearby coffee shop. Earlier the Monster Hunter Portable 3rd festival looked like this.

 

 

Limited edition merchandise was sold on site, but a booth representative said everything was gone quickly. While this is the first Monster Hunter festival for Hong Kong, SCEH often runs gatherings like this. A few weeks ago there was a LittleBigPlanet 2 Easter Egg hunt in the same mall.

    Man, sometimes I wished I lived in the world of Monster Hunter. Sure, I’d probably die young, but hunting Wyverns with friends using oversized weapons sounds so fun.
