Tsujimoto talks about Monster Hunter in other forms of media as well.
Monster Hunter 4 is 60% complete, producer Ryouzou Tsujimoto said in an interview with Weekly Famitsu.
After this, Tsujimoto went on to talk about the future of Monster Hunter in other forms of media. He said that as Monster Hunter was originally online, it placed an emphasis on story, but it wasn't until Monster Hunter 3 that they really put the focus on the story. Tsujimoto added that he was very happy whenever he heard a story of how two people became friends by playing Monster Hunter 3 online.
These comments came from a series of interviews with the top video game producers about the future plans in gaming.
Monster Hunter 4 is slated to release in Japan later this year.
