Monster Hunter Portable Third and MGS 3 crossover event
You like Metal Gear Solid. You like Monster Hunter. You’re just about ready to explode with joy, then, at the latest Solid Snake shenanigans in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd.
The January 22 “MGS: Hunter Eater Operation” event is the second in Capcom’s cross-over series. According to Andriasang, Successful completion of the event quest awards players the capacity to craft MGS 3: Snake Eater-themed Equipment.
Female characters can acquire The Boss Series (swoon!) gear, while male Monster Hunters will have access to the Snake Series.
The first Metal Gear Solid themed event, MGS Solid and Liquid, is available now to those with Japanese PlayStation Network access, and has as its prize the Solid Cat Series, which is apparently Felyne armour.
Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is the PSP version of the Wii’s Monster Hunter Tri, and will release outside Japan as Monster Hunter Freedom 3 sometime this year after selling a gazillion copies in Japan. No word on whether we’ll see Konami crossover events on local PSNs.
