Monster Hunter Portable 3rd: Home Sweet Home



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.




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.




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.
