Capcom Might Let Monster Hunter Players Redesign Their Characters If There Is Fan Demand

Capcom Might Let Monster Hunter Players Redesign Their Characters If There Is Fan Demand

Now that Monster Hunter World is out and seemingly quite successful, millions of players have gone through the character creator and made their own hunter. Capcom, however, is thinking about whether people should be able to remake those designs after they've started the game.

There has been a rash of players who have created their hunters only to be surprised at the result in the game. When Game Watch Impress brought this up to producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, it seems like the idea was not one he had considered.

"You can’t redo it, but when making a character you can check their expressions, so you might want to do that first while making a character," Tsujimoto said in an interview translated by Gematsu. "However, if there’s enough demand for it then I’ll put it under consideration."

Sega Joins Forces With Heavy Rain Lead Designer On New Narrative Game

Sega Joins Forces With Heavy Rain Lead Designer On New Narrative Game

Sega announced today that they have entered into a publishing deal with London-based Interior Night, a new studio founded by former Quantic Dream lead designer Caroline Marchal.

The studio which has a mission statement of delivering narrative-driven games for mature audiences, is not discussing the new IP yet, nor is Sega. Marchal's experience on Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls combined with the studio's stated intention makes it fairly easy to guess what the game will end up being.

Interior Night is made up of former staff from Quantic Dream, Sony, and Slightly Mad Studios, the developer behind Project Cars. Quantic Dream itself has recently been facing criticism after reports alleging harassment and a toxic work environment at the studio.

King Of Fighters 97 Being Re-Released With Online Play On PS4, Vita, And PC

Announced at EVO Japan, SNK is bringing King of Fighters 97 to modern systems with online play (iOS version pictured).

Dubbed Global Edition, the new version of the game is essentially a straight port of the game with the added benefit of playing online. Little else is known about it, but hopefully there are additional training features and replay modes available, as well.

The new game should be available in Spring 2018, though with it being an announcement at EVO Japan, it's difficult to tell if that window is regional. We'll see in just a few months!

Rumor: Microsoft Looking At Electronic Arts As Possible Acquisition Target

Rumor: Microsoft Looking At Electronic Arts As Possible Acquisition Target

In hopes of solving its exclusive software issues, Microsoft may be looking at Electronic Arts among other companies as a possible target for acquisition, Polygon reports.

The information comes nestled within a broader discussion on Microsoft's software portfolio, but Polygon claims that the mega-publisher is one target among several for Microsoft to acquire.

"Some of the names being thrown around as possible acquisitions by Microsoft are, frankly, astounding, even unthinkable," the article's author Colin Campbell writes. "But the fact that they are doing the rounds is instructive. The most recent one we heard (from a reliable source close to Microsoft) was, in fact, Electronic Arts. We also heard a whisper about Valve and about Korean outfit PUBG Corp., which Microsoft last year signed to a timed exclusive for its hit survival shooter, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds."

Square-Enix Montreal Creative Director Leaves After Project Cancellation

Square-Enix Montreal Creative Director Leaves After Project Cancellation

Teddy Dief, creative director at Square-Enix Montreal and former designer for Hyper Light Drifter, has announced he is leaving the publisher after a project cancellation.

Dief made the announcement today on his blog, saying that he felt a need to explain his reasoning for the departure despite it being his dream job. "My team were working on a game that I deeply wish we could have shared with you," he explained. "But the business strategy of the studio shifted, and our project was sadly no longer compatible. Thankfully, the talented team remain employed and valued, assigned to other projects. Because of this shift and the loss of our project, I no longer feel this is the place for me to pursue the type of work I aspire to make - the avenues of storytelling in game design I’ve been trying to explore in my career."

Square-Enix Montreal is best known for the Go series of games, such as Hitman and Lara Croft Go, which are considered some of the publisher's strongest games on mobile. There is no indication what Square Enix Montreal was working on under Dief or why the project was cancelled beyond nebulous business reasons.

More Details Burn Brightly Surrounding Dark Souls: The Card Game

Steamforged Games found widespread success with Dark Souls: The Board Game, which raised over $5 million with its Kickstarter campaign. CMON coincidentally followed suit with game designer Eric M. Lang's take on Bloodborne as a card game in 2016. It's only appropriate that Steamforged would ride the coattails of adapting From Software's popular property with another interpretation of Dark Souls' ruthless difficulty.

Dark Souls: The Card Game is focused on surviving by yourself or working closely with up to three other players. You'll assume a class from the start that gives you special abilities and build your deck with armor, item, and weapon cards that can mean the difference between life and death. The goal is to acquire as many souls and treasure as possible and use them toward acquiring bigger, better decks, which is an intensely collaborative effort when playing with friends.

Part One Of Horizon: Zero Dawn DLC In Monster Hunter World Ending February 8

Part One Of Horizon: Zero Dawn DLC In Monster Hunter World Ending February 8

The first part of Monster Hunter World's DLC crossover with Horizon Zero Dawn is set to end on February 8, so time is of the essence for PlayStation players who want a taste of robot dinosaurs to go along with their monster hunts. 

The event quest "Lessons from the Wild" can be found via the Daily Login bonus screen and tasks players with hunting down Windrakes to be rewarded with a Watcher-themed armor set for your Palico companion. Lessons of the Wild can be started after hunters have reached level six, which is near the point in the game where hunters reach the Coral Highlands.

There's no word yet on whether or not this armor set will return or when part two of the crossover will begin. The reward for the second quest will give players an armor set that makes their character look like Horizon's protagonist, Aloy, complete with facial animations and hair style.
