Monster Hunter 20th Anniversary: Dates, Voting System and More

In the ever-evolving landscape of video games, few franchises have stood the test of time like Monster Hunter has. The Monster Hunter saga began way back in 2004 when Capcom released the first title for the PlayStation 2, and it’s still going strong today with over 17 games across dozens of platforms.

In March 2024, the Monster Hunter franchise will officially be two decades old, and Capcom is having a very special event held in honor of its birthday.

Capcom has created a voting competition titled “Hunters’ Choice (Top Monster)” to determine everyone’s favorite monster from the Monster Hunter series. There are rewards involved, so you don’t want to miss this limited-time event!

Additionally, Capcom has teamed up with a very special company to release a series of limited-edition gaming products that fans of the Monster Hunter series really won’t want to miss.

Here’s everything you’ll need to know about the event and how to participate:

The Hunters’ Choice voting event will be held for a full month, from November 20th to December 20th. Fans of the series who possess a Capcom ID will be able to cast their votes during this time, though only one single vote per Capcom ID is permitted.

Every single monster that has ever been featured in the Monster Hunter series will be featured in the ballots, meaning participants will have to choose from 229 total monsters. Once a vote has been cast, it cannot be changed, so choose wisely!

All participants will be rewarded with a free wallpaper from Capcom featuring all-new, never-before-seen artwork. Furthermore, participants will also be treated to a custom, original illustration straight from the developers featuring the top three monsters from the vote.
