Although with a slight delay – a couple of days -, the unofficial Monster Hunter Online English patch from Team Hunter’s Destiny just went live. As you probably known by now if you’ve been following this game, Chinese publisher Tencent didn’t place an IP block in this game, so everyone is able to try it. Aslind Samure from Team HD made a handy tutorial on how to get to play this game, and you can download the English patch here.
According to Steparu, you can even purchase in-game money with Paypal for Monster Hunter Online, so while this isn’t a western localization, it’s pretty much the closest thing we’ll get. Take a look at the video below to get an idea of the quality of the translation.
