The organizers also elaborated on the history of the Monster Hunter Orchestra Concert, which first started as early as 2009:
The first orchestral Monster Hunter concert was held in 2009 to commemorate the game’s 5th anniversary. Remarkable reviews were generated, and it continued to reimagine the live music experience annually since 2014 in Japan. In 2019, the show toured 5 cities across the country in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the game, bringing unique and captivating content to fans. In 2020, the orchestra concert was held online for the first time, for hunters all over the world to enjoy.
The upcoming concert will include a combination of video visuals featuring beloved characters and monsters from the game, along with a full orchestra performance of tracks from the series.
In addition to Izumi Kato(Vocal), Hideki Ishigaki (Shakuhachi), Momoka Enomoto (Biwa), Sho Asano (Tsugaru-Shamisen) and Daisuke Miyazaki (guitar), renowned “Monster Hunter” series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto will also join the crew and deliver a behind the scenes speech.
Capcom has always been proud of the music in Monster Hunter, with songs like Proof of A Hero, the series main theme, appearing in games such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They’ve also frequently released featurettes about the game’s music, such as for Monster Hunter World and Monster Hunter RIse.
