Monster Hunter Christmas Card

It’s getting to be that time of year again and even gaming companies are getting into the Holiday spirit. Capcom UK held a contest for their community to design the company’s Christmas card this year.

After all the entries were received, Capcom chose the Monster Hunter design you see above as the winner of the contest. Congratulations go to David Hankin, who designed the card. If you want to see more of his work, you can visit his personal website here.

For those of you who aren’t very Monster Hunter savvy, the monster in the picture is a Yian Kut-Ku, and the cat is a species called a “felyne”.  It’s a bit funny that this is the card that won, since quite a few fans were vocal on Miiverse about Kut-Ku’s absence in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

You can see the other contest entries on Capcom’s Facebook page.  As a huge Monster Hunter fan, I’m personally really happy to see my favorite game series featured in the winning entry! Do you guys like this design, or would you have picked one of the runner ups instead? Let us know below!

    first! but yeah beautiful artwork!

    • I love it! So nice and clean looking

      • Kidicarus1

        Yeah! I got this game , and was unsure, but now it is one of my favorite titles!

        • Oh, Monster Hunter is by far my favorite game series

          • Kidicarus1

            Yeah. Well nice talking to you. I am going to go play my Wii U!

          • Have fun! 🙂

  • The Clockwork Being

    Beautiful artwork!

    All great and all but when is Monster Hunters 4 coming to the rest of the World and when is that true HD Wii U version coming up?

    • I REALLY want to know the answers to both those questions 🙁

      • The Clockwork Being

        Oh and Zorpix keep up with these articles. Really am enjoying these 🙂

        • Thank you very much! I have two that are ready to go and just need to be approved right now 😉

          • Arthur Jarret

            Can we do a WiiUdaily MH3U online stream? We haven’t had an online stream since that splintercell thing… Pitch it!

          • Ducked

            We should do that! But first I need to buy the Wii U version (still playing the 3DS version)

          • Arthur Jarret

            Just use the system packet relay tool on wii U to go online… although you do need a wired connection to the internet to use it >_<. Anyway, there are no seperate servers for wii U and 3DS – so everyone xan play together – although I remember some chat options being limited on 3DS

    • Ducked

      I wonder the same thing. Perhaps Capcom will bring MH4 to the west sometime in Spring/Summer 2014.

      Although since the Wii U version isn’t even announced yet, probably not until 2015 in North America and Europe. Since we all know it’ll hit Japan months before.

    • DarkLegacy

      I’m hoping to see a Wii U version of MH4, even though the Wii U version has not been announced yet. I think it might be long until we see a MH4 on Wii U. And I hope that they do bring it on Wii U

  • Sdudyoy

    Cool I love Monster Hunter but not nearly as much as my Brother, and I didn’t know you published articles Zorpix! is this one of your first?

  • Johny

    noone likes you kut-kut …. your tail hitbox is broken like heck

    • THANK YOU! I hated Kut Ku >.>

      • Johny

        Oh Zorpix dude 😀 you write for wiiudaily now huh ? .nice 🙂

  • Ducked

    I love the monster hunter series! I picked up the 3DS version a few months ago, at first I hated it. That was until I found myself wrapped in 26 hours into the game!

    Love the art work! But where’s the star?

    • The star is nonexistant. There are no stars in MH. Only pain

      • Ducked

        Pain can bring stars to the head lol

        • DarkLegacy

          And they spin around your head lol

          • oh yeah! Getting stunned 😛

          • DarkLegacy

            I use to bang my head on a wall when I was tired and I passed out and lost consciousness

          • that’s not healthy 😮

          • DarkLegacy

            That was when I was in HS. I kept going to bed a bit late and when I went HS I kept falling asleep, because I didn’t like going to school which is why I use to go bed late. And it felt like stars were spinning around my head and tweeting like a bird lol

          • XD I only slept once in HS

          • DarkLegacy

            I slept a load of times. School wasn’t my type, only gaming was my type. But school, I never really liked. But I’m glad that I’m not in there and still in college

    • Pikachief

      It’s in the monster’s mouth, he’s about to put it on the tree.

      • Ducked

        Wow I feel dumb, thanks lol

  • DOLBYdigital

    Please Capcom bring this to the US and EU on WiiU! I can’t imagine they wouldn’t, the last 2 ones sold ok for a MH game in the west

  • Shota

    beautiful artwork and great article! makes me happy somehow

    • Thank you :3

      and yeah, it’s really good. Wish I could be that good at art XD

      • DarkLegacy

        Don’t worry. You’ll be a good artist

        • eh… I’ve tried…

  • DarkLegacy

    Great write up, Zorpix. I always play MH and it’s a good game. And that pic is looking awesome

    • I play it a ton too :3 I love it! What’s your HR?

      • DarkLegacy

        What’s HR? You mean my Hero?

  • Rinslowe

    Really nice design….

  • felony211662

    How did I know you were the author of this particular article =P

    Edit: to answer your opinion question.. I’m glad this one won cause of the clever artwork, but I can’t help but smile at Phoenix Wright shouting holiday cheer 😉

    • XD I can’t hide the Monster Hunter bias anymore, can I? 😛 Watch out Wii U Daily! MonHun Ahoy!

      I liked the snowflake one. Such detail!

  • Arthur Jarret

    Awesome card – and it auto-wins for being Monster Hunter themed.
    I LOVE the series. I used to only have Tri on Wii and Ultimate on Wii U and 3DS – but I got a PSP last week and am enjoying freedom unite right now.

    I don’t know if I ever joined you for some hunting online, though….

  • Simon Stevens

    I just printed this off and sent it to a few people as a Christmas card haha

  • Suck it!1

    • Ducked

      The only good thing about Xbox One is a Nintendo car

    • still not MH 😉
