Dangerous Game: Nintendo Taking Monster Hunter from Sony

Gi - Gird your loins. Sharpen those knives. And sit in front of the fire pit preparing that succulent hamhock. Monster Hunter (MH) is coming back, and in a major way for the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. For the uninitiated, Monster Hunter is an immensely popular action role-playing game, where the player character (obviously) hunts monsters for rewards. With incredibly addicting and rewarding gameplay, one can get lost for many hours tracking the elusive beasts the game offers. While more of a cult hit for North American gamers, Monster Hunter is kind of a huge deal in the Japanese market. With Nintendo capitalizing on the franchise first, Sony may have been dealt another blow in the handheld market.

ha haa haaa Sony getting snatched of its goods? sounds like sony is being bullied by nintendo.

Cupid_Viper_31239d ago

I'm sorry but isn't Ragnarok Odyssey, and Soul Sacrifice, plus many other similar games coming to the PS Vita and the PS3/PS4?

Sony doesn't really need to bank on MH as it is time to move onto bigger better games. Nintendo in the meantime has been stripped of all third party games, but of course if you mention such things, you're obviously hate Nintendo Right?

nintendo NEEDS 3rd party to support them?

look, all i said was what i did up above. I just know that Sony is not content with nintendo swooping in from the sky and cLamping away what rightfully belonged to sony. Monster Hunter. .. u think sony is okay with bullying around the work place?

Cupid_Viper_31239d ago

Dude if it was rightfully Sony's then Sony would have done everything in their power to keep it theirs.

And yes, Nintendo does need 3rd Party....Everyone Does.

Irishguy951239d ago

bigger and better? Good look with that. It is a challenge.

miyamoto1239d ago (Edited 1239d ago )

LOLs!

Snatched?

History repeats itself.
Remember Capcom 5 for Game Cube?

Even if Sony doesn't spit, it will happen again.

chrispseuphoria1239d ago (Edited 1239d ago )

No, it sounds like Capcom are using old engines from previous Sony platforms and pasting them onto current Nintendo consoles (because they're inferior in terms of power) rather than making a new one for PS4.

rezzah1239d ago

That's what happened to the PS3.

Being harder to develop for and 3rd in overall sales at the time, the Wii was the more profitable choice. This is why Capcom changes the direction of MHTri from PS3 to Wii.

Pissed my off a lot, because for months it was known that the game was coming to the PS3.

Even if there is a MH for the Wiiu, it isn't built from the ground up for the Wii. Mostly it is a HD upgrade from the Wii version.

All this means that once again Capcom are shying away from spending extra time to make a brand new MH experience.

Capcom is very good at BSing everything.

Judging by the demo on Wii U, Nintendo can keep it. One of the worst looking and gameplay I have seen in a while.

Just horrible.

Mr_Stark1239d ago (Edited 1239d ago )

That's because it's a Wii game. It hasn't been enhanced visually. As for gameplay you've obviously never played a Monster Hunter game before.

Kos-Mos1239d ago

Hehe. Someone is crying loudly. Everyone come and see.

PFFT1237d ago

See the reason is that this game is an HD remake of the Minster Hunter 3g for the 3ds. The 3ds version came out i believe a year before give or take then Capcom decided to also make it for the Wii U but HD enhanced. Hence the name Monster Hunter 3G HD.

profgerbik1239d ago

Hmm Soul Sacrifice, Toukiden, Ragnarok Odyssey, God Eater 2 and Lord of Apocalypse?

jakmckratos1239d ago

THis game is whack as hell. Oveeeeeeeeerrated.

PFFT1237d ago

Why is it too hard for you??? Ahhh im sorry that you have no skill whatsoever.
