In This Racing Game, You Shake A Pig


Monster Hunter is everywhere in Japan — including the JAEPO arcade game expo. However, this Monster Hunter arcade is not, as you might expect, a coop boss hunting game. Rather it is an arcade style racing game titled Monster Hunter Diary: Oink Oink Pig Race.

As you may have guessed from the title, Monster Hunter Diary: Oink Oink Pig Race is a pig racing game in which the cat-creatures from spin-off title Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Felyne Village ride pigs through various Monster Hunter themed levels. However, this racing game does not come with a standard steering wheel controller. Instead, it comes with a life-size pig controller that you must rock back and forth in lieu of a gas pedal. You then steer by turning the pig left and right — and slap the button on its butt to make it jump. And let me tell you one thing, my arms ached after playing it.

Monster Hunter Diary: Oink Oink Pig Race will be released later this year. There are no plans for an international release.
