If you are a big fan of the Monster Hunter video game series then we’ve got some good news for you. Earlier this week, it was announced that the franchise would be getting a special animated adaptation, titled Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild.
Per Variety, it was revealed that Capcom and Pure Imagination Studios would be teaming up for the upcoming Monster Hunter animated special. Series producer had the following to say regarding the project.:
“We think die-hard fans will appreciate our dedication to the source material while those uninitiated to the series will still be treated to an epic adventure in a wholly unique world.”
Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild will be written by Joshua Fine (Ultimate Spider-Man), telling the story of an aspiring young monster hunter looking to make a name for himself. The brief summary provided reveals that the boy stumbles on a terrifying discovery when he finds that his village is directly in the path of an Elder Dragon, which could cause a dizzying amount of damage and devastation for his home.
At the moment, it is unclear as to whether the special will lead to a full-fledged series. When it comes to a release date, production is projected to wrap this winter, with a global premiere scheduled for 2019.
