Monster Hunter Festa Will Go On, But Without The Monster Hunter Dev Team
Monster Hunter Festa is still set to run in Boston this Saturday, but without its special guest. Capcom announced through a tweet today that the Monster Hunter World dev team will no longer be flying out to the event.
Sony has recently pulled out of PAX East and GDC 2020 due to novel coronavirus. Square Enix has also reduced its presence due to coronavirus. Capcom’s tweet does not mention what the cause for the cancellation of the dev team appearance is.
Monster Hunter Festa is not part of PAX East, but will be running during the event. The festa promise exclusive swag, the opportunity to play the game with others, photo ops, a cosplay showcase, and more.
Originally, the Monster Hunter dev team was meant to give a presentation and have an autograph signing session. Although the autograph signing is cancelled, there will still be news about Monster Hunter World: Iceborne revealed at the event.
Monster Hunter Festa takes place at The Royale in Boston on February 29. The festivities start at 8 P.M. local time. The festa does conflict with some PAX activities, so attendees may have to make some hard choices between the two events.
