Monster Hunter 4 is approaching its much awaited Japanese release date that will happen on September the 14th, and today Capcom went seriously overboard with the promotion with a whole 11 videos, including the opening movie.
it is shame that such a great game with great potential goes completely wasted in 3DS the ...i will be waiting it to be released for Next gen or Vita
Why because the vita has more graphical power than 3ds? That didn't stop 33+ million people from buying the handheld. You seem to only care about graphics which is pretty sad.
Actually graphics are pretty important. Why do you think people upgrade consoles and such?
Or maybe because the vita has a right analog stick which makes controlling the camera a hell of alot easier than using the D-pad. I should know I played Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on psp. Controlling the camera while keeping your character moving was a pain since both the D-pad and thumb stick are on the same side. Got it for the vita mapped the camera controls to the right stick. It played 1000 time better.
it's a shame capcom don't want to bring the series to more powerfull platforms(not these crappy psp/ps3 and 3ds/wiiu hd port) just to use the sames engine and assets from 2004.
i dont care only about graphics ..i care most for new content and expanding the already solid fiction world of Mou HOu ..(monster hunter 4 will have 70 % the same content with the previous monster hunters ..and if you are an old "hunter" this bothers you a lot)... new content needs bigger system capabilities..so it is clear stupidity,greediness (and laziness) for capcom to release it for 3DS
Actually I could not care any less if the game looked exactly the same as the 3DS version on the PS Vita. It would just be better to play on the PS Vita. I hate having to use the circle pad pro. Not like every 3DS game I would like to use it with even supports the thing anyway. Which is even worse that only so many games work with it.
Vita release or I don't care. And how about a next-gen MH?
I Hate you capcom!!... Sony PSP gave you a home for the Monster Hunter series and this is how you Repay them!!! I will never ever ever ever buy another capcom game again...of course until Monster hunter tri is released the Ps3 and Monster hunter 4 for the vita.
That is a terrible argument. Megaman X started on the SNES but then jumped ship to the PS1, so what? 3rd parties can jump all they want if there is a reasonable benefit in doing so.
It's annoying to not see a brand new game on PS3, PS4 or Wii-U
trailer was sweet:) too bad i can't play this on my vita.really miss this series. was awesome playing it on the psp together with my friends. good times
We can hope Crapcom come to their senses and bring it back to their rightful home soon. It's a shame, i used to love Capcom games, but this along with other odd choices (direction of Resident Evil, new DMC, Nintendo exclusivity for the last few MH games) have left a sour taste in my mouth and i now tend to avoid them...
That's too bad. Not buying a game because it's not on the system of your choice just wreaks of fanboy loyalty. Blame sony for not offering more money than Nintendo for exclusivity.
I don't agree with either of you. Money hating exclusives isn't cool and not buying a game you like just because its on a certain system isn't cool. I could understand if maybe that is the only game you want and you just can't justify buying a system for one game. If there are more games that you do like for it then why not try it out. Can always return something if you end up not like it. The return policy should be long enough for you to decide.
@PrimeGrime MH would be the only game i would buy on the 3ds if i did really want it, so it's just not worth it. Also i played the 3ds and my eyes hurt after about 5mins, so i wouldn't buy it because of the 3d anyway (i know you can turn 3d off, but that would be like trying to disable touch gestures on an iphone... turning off its main selling point). The only game i used to play on Ninty systems was Pokemon (and occasionally Mario), but after Black and White i just fell out of love with that after owning and finishing all of them since Red and Blue, so i don't have a reason to purchase a 3ds at all. That's another reason why i want MH to come back to the Sony portables, as my Vita is filled with games that i love but the lack of a new MH made for Vita is quite annoying after how many hours i put into the PSP versions...
Its sad this game will be on the most underpowered system currently available 3DS = psp with a smaller screen and a cheap 3d technology
It's great this game will be on the most popular and best selling system currently available.
I am getting this but I will say I would much rather play it on my Vita. As said it has nothing to do with graphics, I wouldn't care if it looked the same as it does on the 3DS. I just really don't like having to use the circle pad pro for games like these or like I pointed out, games that support the circle pad pro. I know it would just be a much smoother experience on the Vita. Play wise. I hate the idea of even having to buy a second analog stick separately.
The PSP never needed a second analog stick for people to play MH. it isn't necessary for the 3DS either (and you do not have to claw like the PSP). If you've never played 3U on the 3DS, they added 2 additional camera control methods. Digital D-pad is basically the second analog camera control but set on the touch screen, its position and size can be changed to suit your preference, Target-Camera lets you set the L shoulder button to face the selected monster. This isn't a true lock-on where the camera automatically follows the monster, it acts like the typical "Face-Forward" function it used to, but just faces the monster. Double-tapping the L will use the face-forward function instead (although it can be set to 1 click forward and 2 for monster if that is your preference).
I never said I enjoyed it that much on the PSP either did I? The d-pad just feel completely unnatural in that sense also for setting default fixed angles and I didn't like using the L button for the camera. So sorry if I prefer playing something that just feels better to me. That is why basically all consoles now have a second analog stick for a reason. It is just easier to use, there is no denying that. I never liked playing it on the PSP same with FPS on the PSP. As good as the games were it just always felt so weird to me and it took away from the actual experience.
I have to agree with most of the 3DS comments on here. After putting around 2000 hours in to the PSP versions of MH, it kinda feels like a slap and the face. The real sad part about it all though is not that it is exclusive to the 3DS right now, but that it looks worse than it did on the PSP 5 years ago. Other than the new monsters, there is literally nothing exciting about this. I'd rather play Frontier from 2007 or whatever as that actually took the franchise some place new with the MMO style, constant updates, new weapons and armors and interesting monsters. It's really too bad it isn't for the Vita because I believe it would have been able to push the series forward, and hopefully in a better direction than this game.
that is just pure nostalgia talking. It is true that a Vita game would look better than a 3DS one, but 4 clearly looks better than Freedom Unite.
