Monster Hunter World, since its release, has been a massive hit. After selling more than 8.3 Million copies, this game has become the second bestselling PlayStation 4 game. In a recent interview with the three monsters, the developers of the game, provided fans with an insight, on the monsters in the game and how they were developed. Along with a discussion of their other favorite monsters that they would like to include in the game.

Talking about sales, Capcom has recently released its financial results for the first quarter of the fiscal year. The results are extremely promising and the company has high expectations for the upcoming titles.

The panel which was being interviewed consisted of Monster Hunter World producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, director Yuya Tokuda, and the executive director who is also the art director of the game Kaname Fujioka.

Director Yuya Tokuda said these words explaining the extraordinary monsters of the game and what inspired their designs.

The monsters are fantastical creatures which take design inspiration and reference from various different real-world animals, but we also base some aspects of them on non-living objects depending on the kind of gameplay design we want to express. For example, Legiana is able to fly around very freely, so we wanted its wings to look like they could let it control the air resistance around it.

Talking further about the wings of the monster and airplanes as their inspiration Yuya said.

We made them a more complex shape than other flying monsters wings, inspired by aeroplane wings, with many flaps that it can open and close.

Yuya also said.

Another example is the electrical monster Tobi-Kadachi. It’s covered in fur which lets it charge up static electricity, and releases it to attack, so we took inspiration from electric stun-guns.

In a question regarding the trios favorite monsters in the game, their choices were very interesting.

Yuya said.

My favorite is the flagship monster, Nergigante, It’s very powerful but it also has clear attack patterns and weaknesses, so it’s a great monster for improving your skills. I still find it fun to hunt no matter how many times I’ve done it… oh, and its music is really cool.

Executive Director Kaname Fujioka replied in this way.

I would say the monster which represents the whole series: Rathalos, One of the key aspects of this game was how much we would change the existing monsters who appear in it. We considered this a lot, and when I finally first saw Rathalos running in a build of the game, it bowled me over. It was just so cool! I’m really satisfied with how we could do justice to this monster who has done so much for us for over 10 years.

Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto said.

Kulu-Ya-Ku, I love his personality and how he gets bolder when he’s holding a big rock. He’ll get brave enough to take on monsters that are clearly much stronger than him. Keep an eye out for this behavior in the game!

In a question regarding their favorite monsters from the movies and the comics which they would like to include in Monster Hunter World, the devs replied in this way.

Yuya said.

I love Warcraft, so probably the Frost Wyrm or Sindragosa from that, It would be amazing to bring such visually interesting monsters to Monster Hunter: World and see them punish hunters with the wing-beating and ice breath!

Fujioka replied.

I would choose Gigan from Godzilla, With its single eye, sharp claws, and electric buzzsaw on its abdomen, it’s a kaiju with a very ferocious design. There are other kaiju that I like, but I would want to choose a collaboration monster that does things we couldn’t otherwise do in Monster Hunter.

Ryozo added.

It’s got to be Godzilla himself for me, He’s the monster we’ve all watched since we were little, and he represents Japan!
