The veiw of MH and western players seems to be shifting in the eyes of Capcom of late.. In a more recent interview with Capcom devs they had this to say:

http://www.siliconera.com/2014/07/18/monster-hunter-producer-impression-american-players/

They felt we would be more "aggressive" in our playstyle.. and they thought we would be a lot more different than Japanese players.



What are your all's thought's?


Do you think Capcom is opening up a bit more and seeing that the west is more open to MH than they have lead themselves to believe (maybe steriotyping us more than need be?) and do you think their promoting MH with nintendo here in the west might actually help in them bring more MH to the west?

Like most people, I think they kind of stereotyped us and thought we were more like the CoD players, when, in reality, we are a lot different.

Walking wallets full of money of course. They are only here to make money at the end of the day, although I do think some of them do care for us.

Well yes we players in the Wyst are pretty diverse, but if you look to the West, it is rampant with first and thrid person shooters and GTA clones, all action, all combat with the only real skill needed being the ability to headshot another player.

We Wysterners do enjoy a variety of games otehr than FPS and 3rdPS. We delve deep into games with challanges or different concepts. Like Dark Souls, Dragons Dogma, and of course Monster Hunter.

Capcom's main focus at San Diego Comic-Con this year (like at E3) is MH4U, so that at least shows that they do believe that they could make some profit of it here and that they want the west to know MH exists

That is good to hear. Would definitely like a bigger MH presence here. Maybe be able to go to Gamestop or something and have a meetup.

I believe if anything the cooperation with Nintendo's e3 treehouse, their own e3 shouw and now Capcoms push for 4U at SDCC has shown that their veiw on MH in the west has changed and been changing which I think is somewhat the point of the article in the first post...

True they may have originally stereotyped us and their veiws may have been narrow keeping them from promoting and releasing a lot of their MH products here (them seeing us as agreesive would also account in a large part for the imphasis on RE and SF over Monster Hunter in the west) but since the release of Tri and Nintendo's lare part in promoting it and Capcoms US strong push with it, I think CapJap has had no choice but to take notice and see that there is a larger MH comunity and a more diverse MH community in the west than they believed there to be.
