This August, Capcom are holding a Monster Hunter Portable 3rd event at Universal Studios in Osaka, Japan. Part of the collaboration with Universal, they revealed, will be to create locations and monsters from the game in real life. Amongst these will be a full-scaled 1:1 model of the rare Silver Rathalos.

 

More monsters will be revealed in the coming weeks, such as Jinouga, Doboruberuku, Tigrex Subspecies and so on. Meanwhile, Studio 8 will contain a replica of the Spa House and Yukumo Village itself, from Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, along with replicas of weapons and armour.

 

And yes, there will be Monster Hunter-themed food as well. The event, titled “The Real Monster,” will kick off on August 2nd, and will last for almost an entire month, all the way to September 30th.
