Monster Hunter Tri

European pre-orders to get a free Rathalos head figurine.

22nd March 2010 – Monster Hunter Tri, the game everyone is talking about, roars into life across Europe on 23rd April 2010, and hunters that snap up a copy of the game or any bundle early will receive a stunning free Rathalos head figurine.

Gamers across Europe also have the opportunity to become the ultimate hunter by picking up the exclusive Monster Hunter Tri bundle, which includes the game, a black Classic Controller Pro, Wii Speak accessory and a Lagiacrus head figurine. The ultimate hunter pack bundle will be available from launch.

No ordinary action game, Monster Hunter Tri features an entire living and breathing ecosystem, where monsters interact authentically and naturally with each other, their environment – and you.

You play an up-and-coming hunter in a land where humans and monsters co-exist. Your battles with the fearsome creatures you face will be challenging, tactical and you will learn to pick them wisely, respecting the monsters and seeking to defeat them only in order to gain vital items for your quest.

A story-led single-player mode allows players to immerse themselves into the game’s huge world, and multiplayer modes offer an additional level of excitement. Play co-operatively in a two player split screen mode or team up with friends online and take part in epic battles with enormous, monsters. With full Wii Speak compatibility, hunters can share their knowledge of monsters’ weaknesses, discuss hunting strategy in real time, and even cry for help when needed or celebrate after a victorious battle.

Pre-order your copy or bundle now to ensure you collect a beautiful Rathalos head figurine. Monster Hunter Tri launches in Europe on 23rd April 2010.
