About Monster Hunter Tri:
Monster Hunter Tri depicts a living, breathing ecosystem where humans and monsters co-exist. Players hunt fantastic beasts from a huge arsenal of weapons and armor to achieve glory and help the residents of their newly adopted village survive. One of the most strikingly beautiful titles ever developed for Wii, the hunting season allows unparalleled multiplayer gameplay both online and offline and companion adventures in arena mode.
Monster Hunter Tri sees the introduction of an expansive story mode as the role of a hunter is tasked by the Village Chief to investigate the constant earthquakes that threaten the everyday life of Moga village. A bustling and vibrant town, Moga is home to the hunter and includes a Blacksmith for forging weapons and armor, a shop where items can be purchased and an expanded farm with Felynes acting as laborers and tending the crops. Complementing the new creatures and quests that Monster Hunter Tri introduces to the series, hunters also have the benefit of new weapons and armor sets including an all new weapon class, the Switch Axe, giant bowgun and a Torch that not only illuminates the darkest caves but will fend off certain creatures as they embark on the most epic Monster Hunter™ adventure to date.
