Monster Hunter Rise is easily one of the most popular entries in the series, and NieR creator Taro Yoko is playing the game just like everyone else. However, Taro Yoko recently shared crazy ramblings for Monster Hunter Rise, and they’re all very reminiscent of his previous games.
Yoko’s games tend to have themes of sacrifice, loss, grief, and more – compared to the Monster Hunter games which are, you guessed it, only focused on slaying monsters.
While Yoko isn’t involved with Monster Hunter Rise or Capcom, it would be certainly interesting to see if any of his “delusional” ideas ever made it into the game.
Here’s all of Taro Yoko’s ramblings:
The old muscle man dies as a shield in the rampage that occurs after the tutorial is over. The old man will die as a shield in the rampage that occurs after the tutorial is over, and it’s because the player made a mistake.
Either the girl from the dumpling shop or the kid from the buddy plaza will die. The one who doesn’t die will fall into darkness and set fire to Kamura village. The chorus will disappear from the background music in the buddy plaza.
The player goes to fight against the final boss, only to find their attacks are completely ineffective, but you can sacrifice one of the twins to make a weapon out of her to fight the dragon. The player decides which one to use as a weapon. After creating a weapon, the singing will disappear from the village background music.
As the main characters leave the village, the store keepers are replaced by less impressive NPCs. The player is gradually ostracized by the villagers as “a person who harms the village of Kamura.” The supply of items and weapons becomes increasingly scarce, and as a result, the difficulty level increases.
From the highest difficulty quest, the monsters start to talk. The “true meaning” of monsters and Kamura village will be explained, and players will learn the meaning of why the character has a voice in this game.
After clearing all the village quests, the village of Kamura will be in ruins and only multiplayer will be available. After clearing all the village quests, the village of Kamura becomes a ruin and only multiplayer is available. (Title roll here)
