Kojima reveals Monster Hunter crossover

PSP game to star Felyne as well as Snake.

Forthcoming PSP game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will feature characters from the Monster Hunter series, including mascot Felyne.

News of the crossover emerged via Famitsu magazine, which reported that creatures such as the Tigrex and Velociprey will appear in the game.

MGS creator Hideo Kojima confirmed the plans at a press conference in Tokyo. According to Andriasang a video of Snake fighting some familiar enemies was shown, accompanied by Monster Hunter background music. "It looks like Monster Hunter, but with Snake," apparently.

Kojima will embark on a world tour to mark the release of Peace Walker, beginning when the game is released in Japan on 29th April. A European launch will follow on 18th June.
