Capcom announced today Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild, a 3D animated short film or "special" that will be released worldwide in 2019. The press release describes the story as featuring "a courageous young man determined to prove himself as a monster hunter worthy of recognition".

The Behemoth, it's safe to say, is one of the largest, scariest monsters in either Final Fantasy or Monster Hunter, towering over parties, its horns protruding out towards its prey. This animated adaptation of the popular monster hunting franchise will be co-produced and financed alongside Pure Imagination Studios.

"We are thrilled to return fans to the universe of Monster Hunter and expand the series' rich lore", said Monster Hunter Series Producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto.

The Monster Hunter series has been successful in Japan for years, but nothing has come close to the level of success brought by Monster Hunter: World.

In a report, analysts for BoAML say "although cumulative sales volume is growing steadily, we get the impression the popularity of Monster Hunter is dying down six months after its release", citing sluggish sales in the last few weeks in particular.

Pure Imagination Studios has experience turning licenses into animated shows and films, including LEGO and Marvel.

With flexible online multiplayer options and an accessible quest structure, players can tackle challenges alone or join up to three other hunters online for cooperative play.

There's something pretty awesome about crossover items that become available in the Monster Hunter series like the Street Fighter and Mega Man goods And next month is no exception for owners of the latest adventure, Monster Hunter World.
