About Monster Hunter Tri

Monster Hunter Tri is an action game with a difference. Your adventure is built interacting with and battling the scores of incredible beasts that inhabit your world– a living, breathing ecosystem. The monsters’ behaviour is modelled on real animals with territorial displays designed to keep you away if you get too close, migrations and a realistic food chain that sees the strong prey on the weak. This is a world where the monsters deserve your respect… and where the hunt is not for entertainment, but for your survival and improvement.

Monster Hunter fans can get together with fellow fans of the series and check out everything Monster Hunter Tri at the brand new‘one stop shop’ for the game– www.theyrehere.co.uk
