Monster Hunter Anniversary Program Announced, Won’t Include Wilds

As part of the ongoing celebration of the 20th anniversary of Monster Hunter, Capcom announced an Anniversary Program will air on March 12, 2024. However, fans expecting news about the upcoming Monster Hunter Wilds will be disappointed, as the company confirmed there will be no news or announcements on the game.

While not a new game like many may have been hoping, the announcement did state that the program will reveal the top 10 winners of the 20th Anniversary Hunter’s Choice vote which took place in 2023. The monsters that ranked 11-20 will be revealed gradually on Twitter in the days leading up to the event, beginning with the Crimson Glow Valstrax that placed 20th in the poll.

You can find the announcement and statement tweets below:

Recently, Capcom and Pasela announced the permanent opening of a Monster Hunter-themed bar in Osaka, while Monster Hunter and Resident Evil themed shirts also appeared via Amazon’s Merch on Demand website.

Meanwhile, Monster Hunter Wilds was announced during the The Game Awards ceremony in December 2023. However, new Capcom hasn’t fully revealed the title.
