Monster Hunter Online teases the world with a few more videos

Details about Capcom and Tencent’s massive, monster-slaying bonanza are a little sparse, but what we do know is the game’s an MMO using the eye-candy factory known as CryEngine 3 to create a land of calming waterfalls, swaying foliage, and a bunch of cuddly monsters just waitingto be hunted.

The text might be a challenge to read as it hasn’t been translated into English, though that makes some sense considering Monster Hunter Online’s release has only been confirmed for China. Crytek sent out a press release earlier this year saying Tencent and Capcom were working on an "international release" but later retracted that statement. This doesn't necessarily mean a non-Chinese version of MHO isn't possible, especially when you consider how much the game sells in other countries (hint: it's a lot).

The game went into closed beta on June 28, and hopefully we western countries will get a taste of online monster-hunting camaraderie in the near future. You can find the other videos here and here. Any readers who are fluent in Chinese can also visit Tencent's official site for more information.
