Monster Hunter is hard to get into. Capcom is excellent at managing its community. Put these two things together and you get the Monster Hunter Community College, a way for San Fransisco Bay Area hunters to learn how to play the game and meet up with each other.
Details come from the Capcom Unity blog. On April 20th, at the home office in San Mateo, Capcom U.S.A. will welcome hunters for raffles, giveaways, early DLC downloads, and classes designed for beginner and intermediate players. Though signing up is free to anyone with a Capcom Unity account, spots are limited, so hopeful hunters are encouraged to sign up early.
Though the company has pushed Monster Hunter before, creating a community event at the U.S.A. home office is a great move to get people interested in the game and help players who aren’t accustomed to hardcore MonHun battles a leg up. Other developers could learn a thing or two about directly interacting with their fanbases by following Capcom’s example.
