Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild will be premiered exclusively on Netflix on August 12. Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild is a 3D animated special from Pure Imagination Studios based on Capcom’s Monster Hunter game series. This was announced back in July 2018.
The Monster Hunter series has gained explosive popularity around the globe since the release of the PlayStation 2 game Monster Hunter by Capcom in 2004. These hunting action games have sold a total of 72 million copies across the entire series (as of March 31, 2021), and took the world by storm by developing cooperative gameplay between players through hunting monsters in beautiful natural locales.
The newest entries in the series are Monster Hunter Rise, a game released for Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021, and the role-playing game Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, which released on July 9th for Nintendo Switch and PC. And now, this global hit game series will be reborn as a Netflix Anime Film.
