YouTuber GaijinHunter leads charge to bring new Monster Hunter Title to the West

Adam Evanko, AKA GaijinHunter, is leading the charge to bring the newest Monster Hunter title to the West

Adam Evanko is a popular YouTuber and personality among fans of Capcom's Monster Hunter series. His GaijinHunter YouTube channel, which publishes anything from tips and tricks to full weapon tutorials, get thousands of hits by new and experienced hunters alike.

A Westerner by birth, GaijinHunter moved to Japan many years ago to work as a game developer and uses his position to push to release Japanese exclusive titles throughout the rest of the world.

His latest campaign, #MHXfortheWest, seeks to push Capcom to release Monster Hunter X around the world. Currently, the game is slated for a November 28th release date in Japan only. 

Traditionally, Capcom has released a Monster Hunter game in Japan and then releases an "Ultimate" version in the rest of the world about a year to a year and a half later. GaijinHunter's goal is to get a simultaneous worldwide release date, similar to what we got with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire late last year.
