It looks like aside from Monster Hunter Stories, Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise is getting more anime. This is because Capcom has just announced a new 3D animated special titled Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild.
According to Variety, Pure Imagination Studios is collaborating with Capcom for the project, with Ulrimate Spider-Man’s Joshua Fine writing. Here’s how they describe the special’s story:
Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild will focus on an aspiring young monster hunter looking to make a name for himself. He 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
Series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto told Variety that they 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”. In addition, Pure Imagination added that their focus is on “building content driven eco-systems and experiences” that live across “multiple platforms of engagement,” according to John P. Roberts, chief content officer.
Capcom will be announcing more details about this 3D anime soon in the days to come.
