For the longest period of time, the Monster Hunter series has been playable on non-HD devices. Despite that, the game still had a charming aesthetic that worked for itself. Now, thanks to the hard translation work by Team HD, the Chinese exclusive Monster Hunter Online will be available to play for English speakers. Not only that, but the game will be in glorious high definition and 60 frames per second.

For a taste of what it looks like, check out this video:

The team have already released guides that allow players to jump right into the game and play through the Chinese version. This gorgeous game will certainly curb my hunting lust before the newest iteration of the game is released. Monster Hunter Online can be downloaded and played by following some of the guides in the previous link. Monster Hunter Generations is slated for North American release on July 15th.

EDIT:

According to the team’s Facebook page, the translation was meant to be out today (30th of May) but has been pushed back due to an impending client update for the game.

“Hello everyone!
Thank you very much for your support on this project
After the patch today we, from Team HD have discussed about our plan of releasing the patch on 30th and we do think that there will be an update to the client either on 30th or 31st
With this in mind we decided to push the release date after the game’s update which is either around May 31st or even 1st of June
Please share the news about this update to your friends
