Monster Hunter Generations: Felyne Fine!

The new installment in the Monster Hunter series comes out for 3DS in only two short weeks and we are PUMPED. Known as Monster Hunter X in Japan, it sold over three million copies in its very first month: if the numbers are anything to go by, we're in for a major treat. Taking only 8 months to reach us in North America, the highly-anticipated Monster Hunter Generations celebrates twelve years since the release of the original Monster Hunter.

Play as a Felyne? Amaaaazing!

Generations is special for a lot of reasons--there are new "Hunting Styles" and "Hunter Arts" abilities, making it the most customizable game in the series to date--but our number-one most looked-forward to feature is that in Generations, you can play as both a human and a Felyne. Formerly NPC-only companions to human players, this mischievous race of kitty-critters are now totally playable characters. And as we all know...

 

Everybody wants to be a cat!

 

When July 15th rolls around we hope you'll join us in celebrating Monster Hunter Generations, kigurumi-style: lounging out, 3DS in hand, matching your real-life self to your in-game self. Mee-ow!

MonsterHunterNYC launch party!

Kigurumi.ca is the official Canadian distributor of authentic SAZAC kigurumi. SAZAC is Japan's number one kigurumi manufacturer, and the quality of SAZAC onesies is unmatched around the world. Unfortunately, this means that many other manufacturers will try (and fail!) to mimic SAZAC products. It doesn't take much to notice a major difference in quality between authentic kigurumi and imitators' attempts.

Fake. vs. Real: Stitch Kigurumi

For starters, imitation kigurumi are generally made of much thinner fabric--sometimes crushed velvet, which deteriorates much more quickly than fleece, cotton, and poly--and are poorly stitched together. Fakes tend to have wonky-looking faces: crossed eyes, asymmetrical features, and visible stitch defects. Colours won't be nearly as vivid, lining is often missing altogether, and features such as sleeves, tails, ears, wings, etc., will be overall much more floppy and downright sad-looking.
