Monster Hunter Online’s English translation arrives

After a short delay from its original intended release, Monster Hunter Online has finally brought an English translation of the game to market.

English-speaking players (we assume that’s most of you reading this) can now enjoy this Chinese title without hiring an expensive translator to sit next to you. This translation was created courtesy of Team HD, a collective of players who had a passion for making this happen. Because it’s an unofficial patch, you’ll need to jump through a few extra hoops to make it work, but happily there’s a guide for that.

“Instead of just tossing everything into Google Translate, we’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into making every bit of text in the patch sound like a localization that even Capcom would be proud of (yes, even including puns),” wrote Team HD. “We’ve even made an installer file to streamline installing the patch for the less tech savvy hunters.”

Steparu has a look at the new English version in the following video overview.

Monster Hunter Online’s unofficial English patch is due for release on May 30th

The good news for fans of the Monster Hunter franchise is that the Chinese version of Monster Hunter Online is pretty much totally accessible to American players. The bad news is that it’s in Chinese. (This is actually good news for Chinese fans, obviously, but English-speaking fans, not so much.) Fortunately for said fans, it looks like the unofficial English patch will be ready for use on May 30th, allowing you to enjoy the game without having to randomly guess at what things say.

Fans are promised that the new patch will translate the game in “great depth,” which should be interesting to see at the very least. Players should keep their eyes open for the patch on the release date as well as a guide to installing and using the game. It’s not as easy as just playing a localized release of the game, but that doesn’t seem to be happening with any urgency.

Tencent’s new Chinese console includes League of Legends in its lineup

If you’ve long wished to play League of Legends on a console, we’re happy to tell you that this will soon be a thing you can do. You just have to do a few things beforehand. First, learn Chinese. Second, be in China. Third, purchase Tencent’s upcoming console and set it up. Isn’t it worth learning a new language and completely uprooting every aspect of your life in exchange for being able to play the game on a console?

Note that if you’re already in China and speaking the language, this may involve far less uprooting than previously implied.

Tencent‘s new console will also include a variety of other localized Chinese titles operated by the company, including Monster Hunter Online and FIFA Online 3. No announcements have been made about the console heading overseas at this point, but there’s no certainty that it won’t be heading over, either. So perhaps one day you will be able to play LoL on a console without the aforementioned complete shift over to China, and you can sneer dismissively at the people who didn’t like the idea of having the game on a console enough to completely change their lives.

Betawatch: Star Citizen’s universe expands (December 4, 2015)

The universe of Star Citizen is getting a bit bigger with the addition of 50,000 testers to its persistent universe. It also has a brand-new trailer if you want to see people getting out of spaceships and faffing about in space suits, which seems like the prelude to the most ridiculous installment of Grand Theft Auto ever. No one ever said you had to be a good citizen of the stars, right? (Dibs on that idea, incidentally.)

Other beta news? Ah, sure, why not?

Do we still have a list of games down below? Oh, yes indeed we do. Let us know if something has hopped test phases without us noticing in the comments!

Monster Hunter Online’s Chinese OBT will be open to all

You might recall with some sadness that Monster Hunter Online is a Chinese exclusive. And while that still holds true, the good news for players outside of that country is that Tencent isn’t putting any IP blocks on the game’s open beta.

Ergo, if you wish to check out Monster Hunter Online, you need only have a Tencent account and download it from the Chinese site when the OBT begins on December 17th. The fan community has guides to help you with this process as well.

Check out the opening movie of this upcoming MMO to see if it gets you buzzed about the whole endeavor!

Monster Hunter Online gets an elder dragon tomorrow

Are you ready for the good news? Monster Hunter Online’s first elder dragon, a chap named Tartaronis, will be added tomorrow. And now for the bad news: Monster Hunter Online is a China-exclusive!

Anyway, MHO is in closed beta, and it’s scheduled to launch in China later this year. If you’ll be there and you want to play, that’s great for you and you’ll probably get a kick out of the trailer that we’ve embedded just past the break. If, like me, you won’t be there and will probably never play it, well, you can also watch the trailer and either laugh or cry depending on your mood.
