CESA awards “Monster Hunter” most distinguished game content of 2003!

Capcom is honored to announce “Monster Hunter” for the Sony PlayStation2, released on March 11, 2004 in Japan, has received the award for the most distinguished game content among titles released during the fiscal year of 2003. This award was presented at the “Game Awards 2003-2004” at Akasaka, Tokyo, on October 27, 2004 sponsored by the Computer Entertainment Software Association: CESA.

Other games awarded at this show by the CESA are as follows:
1.“Onimusha3” (for PlayStation2)
2.“Gyakuten-Saiban3”(for Game Boy Advance)
3.“Grand Theft Auto III”(for PlayStation2 / developed by “Rockstar Games” and distributed Capcom in Japan)

Furthermore, “Resident Evil 4” (for Nintendo GameCube and PlayStation2) and “Megaman Battle Network 5 Team of Blues/Team of Colonel” (tentative title) for Game Boy Advance were awarded “Game Future Awards”, which are presented only to future titles with the highest expectations.

“Monster Hunter” is an action/adventure game where the player(s) controls their “hunter” either solo or with multiple teammates, via on-line either broadband or dial-up (dial-up option available only in Japan), to hunt down dangerous monsters that inhabit the land and complete quests provided to them through various townsfolk. Completing quests thus provides the player(s) with money and the necessary items to further make their “hunter” stronger and gain the ability to hunt stronger more ferocious beasts that roam the countryside.

As demonstrated at the CESA awards presentation, Capcom is striving to stay on the forefront of the gaming industry through creative new gameplay elements combined with cutting edge technology in relation to graphics and storyline.
