Gematsu: "Capcom held one of their regular “Ask Capcom” live stream events today, during which the company’s Christian Svensson addressed fan concerns over the Monster Hunter franchise’s fate in the west."
So it seems more and more likely that Nintendo will be a publishing partner on this going forward?
Might be what they're waiting for: Nintendo's final call on the whole thing.
I have to imagine that publishing in the West was part of the deal Nintendo made to get the game and 4 on the 3DS That or sacrificing Mario's first born.
I think that capcoms deep relationship with Nintendo has more to do with it. (Though I wouldn't rule out such deals and partnerships.) They have been close partners on quite a few projects over the years.
"very bright" = DLC out the WAZOO?!?!
Mon hun has, as far as I know, only free dlc.
That's a good thing. But based on Capcom's track record, one would assume otherwise. Hopefully Capcom are on the right path and won't charge much in the States.
soo does that mean... no more MH on a sony device...?
maybe it should have real online on the ps3 and not just ad hoc
thats capcom, always relying on sony, but when sony does not deliver they change to nintendo, THE F!! whats wrong with these guys..
I had never played a monster hunter game until i played the one on the Wii and i loved it. This one was money well spent.
So we're going to rise the price, sell the game with only basic stuff, and tons and tons of paid DLC. Also expect to see five versions of the same game. We gonna call it "The SF treatment"
Screw capcom, make your own Monster Hunter clone sony.
HELL YES! they should definately do that! SCREW CAPCOM! Sony made them big, SONY made MH big! look at them now, GIVING A SHIT on sony and them users! F THAT! c'mon sony! you can do better than capcom!
sony didn't make monster hunter big. Play games not the consuls and play the new ones on the wii or 3DS. That's just pure fanboy there......pure fanboy. I'm sure at some point sony will see a new monster hunter. Cashcom made monster hunter big not sony.
As long as Monster Hunter 4 for 3DS comes to America I'm good since I have Tri for Wii....but I'm sure many players would like Tri G for their 3DS now...hopefully for you guys it will be announced @ E3. As for the PSP games......I very much doubt they will come here at this point and Capcom has more of a chance making profit on 3DS than on PSP......and well Vita isn't even part of the equation right now, unless you want to count the newly announced Monster Hunter puzzle game :/
Well, with the way they've been pissing off Western gamers, I'm not as sure of that as I once might have been. I've never had the opportunity to play MH, myself, though I've always been interested. But since Capcom has been such an... uncouth company in recent years, I've little to no interest in giving them my money.
