Monster Hunter X

Monster Hunter X has finally been released in Japan and the game is already setting out to be one of the more successful Nintendo 3DS releases ever, with the retail release going sold-out in several Japanese stores and the digital one breaking several records in just two days of availability. Now that the game is finally out, the team can focus on the development of new content for the game, some of which will be made available in Japan starting tomorrow.

The new Monster Hunter X content launching tomorrow is the Zelda and Mario series collaboration content. By connecting their 3DS online in Seven Eleven stores, players will be able to get a Toon Link armor and a unique The Wind Waker inspired Guild Card as well as an event quest and more Guild Cards based on the Mario series. Some screenshots showcasing the new content have also been shared and you can check them out right below.

A few days ago Monster Hunter X was among the games that Capcom has shown during the latest episode of Capcom TV. Alongside the latest entry of the series, Capcom has also shown the spin-off game Monster Hunter Stories, which will be released next year in Japan on Nintendo 3DS, and Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster, the new version of the Resident Evil game originally released on Nintendo GameCube years back.

Monster Hunter X is now available on Nintendo 3DS in Japan, with a playable demo also available for download on the Japanese eShop. The North American and European release of the game has yet to be confirmed but there’s a good chance we will hear more about the matter next year. Considering how successful Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has been, it would be strange for Capcom to not release Monster Hunter X in the West.

To keep Apex Legends running for an additional “10 to 15 years,” Respawn opens a third studio

Apex Legends developer Respawn has created a third studio in order to keep the popular battle royale genre running for another “10 to 15 years”. Madison, Wisconsin is where the new studio is situated.

This third studio (the first two being headquartered in Los Angeles and Vancouver) will largely focus on Apex Legends in order to ensure a continuous and, most importantly, sustainable production pipeline. It may, however, contribute to other Respawn products in the future. Ryan Burnett, who previously served as director of engine production at Epic Games and had a distinguished 14-year career at Raven Software, the Call of Duty Studio, will serve as the studio’s head.

Senior VP of operations at Respawn, Daniel Suarez, claims in-depth in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz that “Because we intend to stick with this for the long haul, team health is unquestionably a top priority for us. We’re eager to see Apex become a franchise that endures for ten, fifteen, or more years because we think it will. We can’t just accomplish everything at once, exhaust ourselves, and be unprepared to do it over the long run.”

Consistency (as well as adequate production runway) are essential to make Apex Legends’ 90-day turnaround for new seasons of content realistic. Suarez observes that the introduction of new characters to the game takes a lot longer than you might anticipate “It takes us between a year and a year and a half to become proficient in a Legend. We are therefore making preparations well in advance.”

Only a few weeks ago, parent company EA fired more than 200 Apex Legends quality assurance testers in an impromptu Zoom call, raising concerns among some fans about the game’s future.

Do you support Respawn’s decision to open a third studio? Do you believe Apex Legends will still be around in 15 years?
