For as much as the 'Monster Hunter' franchise looks and feels like your typical action-driven multiplayer online game, Capcom's U.S. publishing side is very cognizant of the series' often under-appreciated combat depth. Even as far back as 2009, Capcom's held 'Monster Hunter' community events scholastically themed on further 'Monster Hunter' education. Their latest one happens to be this Saturday, June 29, which also happens to be at Capcom's U.S. office in San Mateo, California, less than 30 minutes away from San Francisco (in good traffic).
Running from 11AM to 5PM, Capcom has ensured that Monster Hunter Community College 2 will be a multi-event gathering, as they're determined to top their previous one. In-house and community experts will offer gameplay tips if you're just a beginner, exclusive 'Monster Hunter' items will be on sale, and they'll have a live-streamed Extra Credit tournament open to all attendees. Note: this event is a Bring Your Own Console gathering, so bring either your 3DS or your Wii U. Whichever you bring, your attendance guarantees early access to two early DLC Event Quests for the 3DS!
Capcom notified us that there is still time to enroll, so if you're interested, follow this LINK.
Oh, and you can also have your photo taken with a life-size Rathalos Firesword and the Dios Slicers, as pictured here by Capcom's Yuri Lindbergh (left) and Brett Elston (Photo by Capcom).
