Anyone waiting with anticipation upon Kojima’s big announcement in regards to Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker may end up quite disappointed depending on what you were expecting. While some of us expected a final announcement on Zone of the Enders 3 or even the potential for the next Metal Gear title, the announcement itself wasn’t quite to that level.

The announcement itself is nothing more than a collaboration with Monster Hunter (which should cause sales in Japan to sky rocket beyond already high expectations) which allows for Snake to do combat with some of the franchise’s more recognizable monsters. These include: Tigrex, Velocriprey and MH favorite, Felyne.

Though crossovers are nothing new to the MGS franchise, the announcement didn’t need to be labeled as ‘big,’ despite the impact in literal size appearing big within the game. Overall, you got us Kojima – hook, line and sinker.

Peace Walker releases in North America on June 8th — get ready for it.

[UPDATE] – Here’s the Peace Walker/Monster Hunter cross-over trailer:

  1. Japan will disagree with the ‘disappointment’ in the title there 🙂

    That title is bugging me… shouldn’t it be announcement? :p

    How are they going to fit these in the game anyway? Actual story mission or secret level of some sort? I wonder if you can choke hold them! Haha.

  3. This should be good for Japanese gamers.

  4. Wow . . . I didn’t really care much for the announcement, but that definitely was underwhelming, even for me.

  5. I always wished I could stick a semi-automatic rifle on that damn Tigrex. Now my wish can finally come true.

  6. meh nothing big 🙁

    no ZoE3 yet….hopefully he announces it during E3 10

    This game just went from a “maybe” to a “must” for me. This is MEGATON in my book. But then again, I’ve dumped 1,200 hours into MH portable games so far so it’s to be expected that I’d enjoy this.

  8. @Reneid Klein: not only that but theyre also featuring Front Mission.,…..although i would have perfered armored core…its going to be quite interesting to see how it turns out!

  9. Oh maaan..Kojima WE WANT ZoE3!!!!

  10. Announcement is a let down but kwl at the same time. Game looks amazing for the psp. a real gem of a game, only if it was coming to the ps3 :/

  11. if only it had insfracture 🙁

    but whatever…this isnt too much of a big deal lol

    ohh and i also found (not sure if this is real or fake), but apparently PW will also feature doritos chips and soda (7up or something) lol
