Monster Hunter Diary: latest round of details and screens, opening movie, videos

Monster Hunter DiaryToday is Thursday, also known as “Let’s reveal new details and screenshots for Monster Hunter Diary Poka-Poka Airou Village DX Day” for Capcom! This week, we get some details about some of the facilities in the village, starting with the Poogie Park. For those who don’t know, Poogies are pet pigs in the Monster Hunter universe.

If you become friend with the director of the Poogie Park, this facility will be unlocked and you will be able to take part in Poogie Races. Those allow you to win some rare items, so you better take those races seriously if you really want to make sure the village becomes as lively as possible.

Just before the race, you can chose various settings (such as the number of laps, or their lengths), but also the Poogie you will race on. Each Poogie has its own “specificities”: speed, tackle, and more, so you have to chose your own carefully before participating. During the races, you have to take the various items that appear on the tracks, while avoiding the obstacles on the way. You can also tackle your opponents if you want to play it rough.

During the race, you will come across a “rainbow area” (that you can see in the screenshots below): during that part, you can perform tricks in order to appeal to the audience, and get items to use during the race (such as bombs). At the end, there’s a ceremony where you get special prizes depending on your rank.

There’s 5  types of races, which come with their own sets of obstacles:

  • Jungle
  • Beach
  • Volcano
  • Desert
  • Snowy mountain

Another facility to open in the village is the Fortune Teller. If you go see him, you can get three types for fortune telling:

  • Personality
  • Daily horoscope
  • Compatibility

Finally, after progressing through the story, you will unlock costumes: you can wear those whenever you want. But first, you need to unlock them by becoming friends with the various villagers. They will give you a costume based on their appearance when your friendship level reaches its maximum level.
