Trip in Japan Day 7 – Break Day, Rail Museum, Nagoya Shopping

Today was a break day for us. Originally I never planned any rest days but my friend didn’t want to travel to places every single day in case it was too much of a tow so, we did our separate things today.

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd PSP Coming End of 2010 | モンスターハンターポータブル3rd 2010年末で発売 | Monster Hunter Portable 3 PSP版2010年未出

Now that Monster Hunter Tri has been out for the Wii long enough to reach the West, Capcom reveals the third PSP game will be coming out sometime towards the end of this year 2010.

It looks as if it won’t be simply a port of the Wii version either…

  • The home town of “Yukumo” has a greater Far East atmosphere (mostly Japanese).
  • You can now take two Felynes with you in single player mode.
  • There’s a new monster resembling a bear.
  • New environments.

Seems Capcom’s Group CEO, Kazuo Hirai’s 16 year old son is quite a fan of the game too and has been asking him when a new game was going to come out!

Monster Hunter Fortune Telling 2010 Edition | モンスターハンター モンスター占い | 魔物獵人幫您占卦

Want to mix in a little of the fun from games into your horoscopes instead of looking at the same old illustrations all the time?

Monster Hunter Fortune Telling 2010 Edition is written by fortune teller Getters Iida in collaboration with Capcom and aims to foretell your fortune between April 2010 and March 2011. Apparently by deciding which of the 48 monsters you are by looking at your starsign, blood type it can tell your personality, the way you play Monster Hunter and your fortune in areas such as love, career and compatibility with others.

This year’s issue also lets you find out which monster your hunter friend could be too.

Wonder which monster I am? I know! I’ll be the slimy, electrifying and blood sucking Giginebula from MH3!

モンハン占いって・・・僕のモンスターはどんなのかな?ギギネブラのようなぬるぬるで吸血のようなも悪くないね(笑)

用你的血型和星座可知道你在魔物獵人占卦(Monster Hunter)的48種魔物之中是哪一雙魔物座而後占你今年的運情。

我的魔物座會是什麼?發電和吸血的Giginebula也不錯(笑)

Monster Hunter 3 Review

Monster Hunter never had much of a storyline but in the latest title for the Wii, “Monster Hunter Tri (3)” tells of how you arrive at the village of Moga as a hunter, a small village situated between the sea and dense forests. Lately, they’ve been having a lot of earthquakes and think the great sea monster Ragiakuls is responsible.

Gameplay

You start off the game very much like any Monster Hunter game by creating your character. Once that’s ready, you’re forced to run through a a few short tutorial quests which I’m not too much of a fan of but in this case, I think it’s fair enough since it’s the new Wii controls. While you can wag the Wiimote about to attack, you’ll be glad to know you can use the buttons to attack and dodge too I’m sure.

The downside about using the Wiimote and nunchuk combo is that you have to slide your hand down to the ‘1’ button to use items and that can be pretty slow in the mist of the hectic battles. It probably would have been better if they let you hold Z and press the up or down button on the d-pad instead. You can also end up swinging your weapon by mistake but fortunately you can turn the Wiimote motion sensor completely off.

The Hunter’s Party Monster Hunter Room

As part of the “Hunter’s Party” marketing campaign for the recently released Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii, Capcom has been working with the chain of Karaoke Pasela stores to serve Monster Hunter related food such as what you see below. The “Cha Cha Honey Toast” in the corner looks delicious!

One of the stores in Akihabara has even re-decorated their room so that it looks like the Felyne Kitchen with the Trainer standing at the entrance. Will only be around until the end of this month, though.
