A shout out to Capcom for giving this game a chance by delaying Monster Hunter 4.

@smurf1. It works out well for both. Capcom said that they are going to fine tune Monster Hunter even further until the Summer, and now this game will get recognition.

Yeah I am thinking they did that on purpose lol!
bicfitness  +   867d ago
I don't think that was on purpose, they had to cut their forecast by 30% as a result. They delayed it for "performance" reasons. Its because MH 4 was looking rough - only so much juice you can squeeze out of 3DS hardware.

Now its up to Sony to market the Hell out of this. If they can show there's enough interest, we can expect a Vita MH down the line.

Personally, I don't care for MH, but I prefer many of the clones: God Eater (really liked that), RO, and this looks good too.

I never got into God Eater to be honest but Ragnarok Odyssey does seem like a great Phantasy Star Online clone that I am yet to try out. I'll definitely get Soul Sacrifice however day one.

the 3DS is actually a quite capable piece of hardware. Capcom have said they had Resident Evil 5 up and running on the 3DS.
bicfitness  +   866d ago
@WiiU

The 3DS is barely as powerful as a 2006 cellphone. That's a fact. Plus its outputting an image twice to render that faux 3D effect as well as outputting to a second screen.

Two 266 MHz ARM processors, 133 MHZ GPU, 128 MB of RAM (30 or so is reserved for the OS). An iPhone 3 runs circles around the device. Nintendo hasn't made "capable" hardware since the Gamecube, and frankly I'm getting tired of their platforms hobbling games for other systems.

So is the development community. Do note how Square Enix are MAKING FF V "and more" for iOS now. I hate iOS as a platform, but they simply have no choice. Its no wonder Capcom is struggling, the thing is debatably as good as a PS2.

This is one of the greatest things I have ever seen! I can't wait. I love the Monster Hunter meets CastleVania epicness of this title. I love being a Vita owner. From Uncahrted to LBP to Assassin's Creed to this... The Vita is incredible.

Man this is looking great most anticipated Vita title for me by far.

I downloaded the demo and played about 10 or so minutes of it and I'm sold. The gameplay is there and the controls are easy to use and not that hard to adjust too. I wish I knew Japanese, so I could understand what was being said or told to the protagonist.

The variety of customization in the game is great too. From the face, skin tone, hair, the outfit (which I find pleasing), gender, you can change the color of the outfit and remove the hood or whatever that covers the face.

The opening of the demo really gets you and I can wait for a western release. Sorry, if I mentioned anything in the demo. I didn't view it until after making this comment.

boybato  +   866d ago

thanks ,hanso.
i do have another question but its regarding the vita and psn.i have psn plus on an alt account(not my main account) and was wondering whether i'd have to tether my vita to the plus account to play the vita games that are part of the instant game collection or is there some way for me to play them on my main account like i normally do on my ps3 after using my alt account to download them first?
some insight into this matter will be much appreciated
SAE  +   866d ago
forget what i said..

just use one account to buy and play to make it simple..

add all your friends to your ps plus account , thats the only way to play without headache lol

its hard to explain it because too many things to say and sony never told us how it works..

thats one of the reasons i hate sony for limiting the vita..

thanks for the reply ideath489.
a bubble up for hanso and u :-).
guess i'll just have to repurchase psn plus for my main account.

Does this game have a hub world? I've been searching for it in the videos but don't seem to see one. I doubt I'll enjoy it if you just use the book to navigate stages.

Looks good

This is a brand new IP and its looking fantastic.. Hopefully it sells well & a sequel can be created with bigger budgets & added content to create a great new franchise for vita.. I dont even want to watch anymore videos about this game cuz i want it to all be fresh & new when i get it

Huge fan of mh and wasnt sure about this game before. Count me very impressed after this video though.. Love the darker tone. Hopefully this gets localized and when it does they don't remove all of the blood effects like in mh. But looks like this will hold me over until capcom pulls their head out of their asses and releases mh for vita.

holy shit that demo was awesome, can't wait to play it on my vita. I think it's gonna blow monster hunter out of the water for the 3ds. I never liked monster hunter to begin with. Like someone mentioned earlier I like the clones like Gods Eater and Ragnarok Odyssey. Can't wait for march. I hope they give us a demo here in the states and I hope that red bundle vita comes to the states too. This is so exciting...lol

This game is the reason we are not gonna see a mh on vita... Smh
