It's gonna look like MH3U looked on the Wii U.

I keep trying MH, but I just can't get into it. I don't have any friends who play it, so it's always kind of a single player game for me. Maybe that's why.

I have given hunting games more than a few tries and i just gave up on them. I don't play console games online and the single player with some more story or less in the case of MH is just a repetitive grind with the same mission and killing the same enemies over and over in hopes for random drops so you can craft new gear and repeat it all over again in the next tier.

It just isn't fun. In an mmo, it would make sense. In a non-persistant world there is just no point.

Oh and the combat tends to be incredibly slow. Some say its really good because of it, i say it's again... boring. Even the better ones like God eater and Freedom wars or Toukiden are just repetitive with only a few different strikes. Dynasty warriors characters have more moves than weapons in hunting games.

I honestly don't get it. I think this is just japan beeing behind in the times and not having been exposed to proper rewarding MMO's like WoW and Guild Wars to the point where MH was the best they had and we just have the japanese crazy following in the west of some people that just eat about anything made in japan.
Can it be better with a regular group? Sure. Just about every game can be way more fun when you got buddies around. It's not an excuse for the poor, repetitive and unrewarding design.

It's coming out faster than I thought, but it looks a lot like an early PS3 game or worse. The Switch must be more capable than that.
