Capcom may have just found the best way to advertise Monster Hunter: World. According to a company’s announcement, they’ll give $70000 to anyone that sends them solid proof that some notorious monsters such as Big Foot and the monster of Loch Ness do exist.
Though unconventional, Capcom encourages you to hunt for some mythological creatures and why not earn some cash out of it. Laura Kelly, Senior PR Manager for Capcom has made the announcement, saying that they reopen the cases of ten “real” monsters such as Big Foot, the Loch Ness monster, the Sirens, the Chupacabra, the worm of the death of Mongolia and so on. It reads:
When we planned to launch Monster Hunter World, we could not help thinking about the monsters of the reality we all heard about when we were kids. We were confronted with Jon Downes, the greatest hunter of real monsters on the planet, who inspired us to reopen the investigation of ten creatures, also setting a size to really encourage people to start looking for evidence of their existence. A bit like the new Monster Hunter World, we felt it was fair that the reward was commensurate with the effort required.
If you think you have what it takes to track down and get evidence of such a monster then you can contact Capcom at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s face it, it would be interesting to see some new photos or videos of unexplained sightings. Will you accept this challenge?
In related news, the latest addition to the Monster Hunter franchise, Monster Hunter: World has sold 5 million retail and digital copies worldwide and that is, in only 3 days. The game is currently available on Playstation 4 and Xbox One (in Europe and North America), with its release on PC coming later this year.
