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.

mysecretid Considering it’s not available in the Western market ( you can play it if you want to hassle with trying to figure out how to make accounts and all the other crap that goes with playing Asian market only games ), probably not all that great.

Noble_Einherjar Being a fan of the series myself i can say you probably don’t miss out on too much here. Tried it myself and while it’s not necessarily a bad game, it feels like a hollow shell with a Monster Hunter Name written on it. Others may not feel that way though . :/

luxundae If you are serious about it, do yourself a favor and start out with the original series. You can emulate older titles on the PC if you have a controller, so you dont necessarily need a console.
MH Online differs quite a bit from the original series, and i dont want to say it’s bad, but you will have more fun with MH4U or an older title, trust me. ;)
On top of that you get a full english game, compared to the google translate mess you get with MHO.

Bunzi Greaterdivinity As far as I know this isn’t crafted, but bought in the item shop. 
While they kept most of the original monster armor designs, the ones that come from new monsters are designed very differently and lean towards mainstream appeal. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but i kind of miss the cool armor design of the original series. :/

cursedseishi Having played the game myself, this is probably just a cash shop costume, so you can’t craft it from monster materials. :(

kilikgaia Yeah… I was dumb and deleted it instead of moving it to my hard drive.  Not looking forward to the pain of getting it reinstalled.

The huge Monster Hunter fan in me is tempted to give this a shot. But with MHG releasing in July (to say nothing of Blood & Wine at the end of the month, and No Man’s Sky/Odin’s Sphere next month), my plate is going to be pretty full.

It’s not that fanservicey, it’s just super duper pretty. I’d much rather look fucking fabulous while I kill giant monsters.
