The idea of making a trailer for Capcom’s massively successful RPG Monster Hunter: World has been baking in my head for a while now. I’m a total amateur, but the call to unite fearsome beasts of sky and land with A Monster Like Me (Mørland & Debrah Scarlett) was too powerful to ignore. For some, the game has provoked concerns over animal cruelty, but I tend to see it as a more realistic version of Pokémon that still falls under the digital escapism umbrella. That said, the split reactions did inspire the angle of the video. Its message is simple: How do we define a monster?
