Capcom announced a Monster Hunter themed 3D animated special is in the works titled “Monster Hunter™: Legends of the Guild”.  The special is being co-developed with Pure Imagination Studios and was written by Joshua Fine, a writer for various animated Marvel projects, most notably Ultimate Spider-Man.

The special will follow the journey of a young man looking to prove himself as a monster hunter, a chance which has opened up thanks to an Elder Dragon which is on a path heading straight for his village.

The animation is set to premier sometime next year after production is planned to be completed this Winter.
