Capcom announced today a collaboration with Pure Imagination studios to produce Monster Hunter legends of the Guild, an animated special set to finish production this Winter and air in 2019.
Both companies will produce and co-finance the 3D animated special with Pure Imagination overseeing domestic and international sales. Joshua Fine, known from his work as writer in the animated Ultimate Spider-Man TV series, wrote the script for this new take on the Monster Hunter series. Fine also worked as a producer in Planet Hulk, Spectacular Spider-Man and Wolverine and the X-Men.
The story introduces a brave protagonist determined to earn the recognition he deserves as monster hunter, and it seems like his odds will take him to find his remote village lies in the path of an Elder Dragon, Monster Hunter’s emblem end-game enemies.
“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. “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.”

Roberts, Chief Content Officer, Pure Imagination Studios.
While there still isn’t a release window for Monster Hunter Legends of the Guild, I can’t wait to see a different take with a big focus on narrative, with a fresh look into the intense combat fans grew to love.
