here's hoping Capcom decides to make an all new MH entry for the Wii U. This way it can be built from the ground up for the more powerful hardware.

I agree, more games need to be built from the ground up for the WiiU, including ports because of its unique skill set

So it's on the 3DS.
Why not on PS4?
That would be great.
MH were a PlayStation exclusive franchise in Japan on the PS2.

Wny isn't Final Fantasy on Nintendo?

Capcom doesn't wanna start from scratch with the monster hunter series...

That's why the cancelled the ps3 version.

My guess they have been using the same engine since the psp Monster Hunters and just upgrading it slightly

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1735d ago

they cancelled ps3 version because of costs for development.

DanielGearSolid1735d ago

So you don't think a new engine is part of development?

Geobros1735d ago

If I translate his explanation I understand this: 3DS has more consoles out there and specially in Japan, so we have more chances to sell millions copies than Wii U....

Neonridr1735d ago

At the end of the day it's all about money to these guys. Which is why the MH series seems to always be targeting the 3DS over the Vita as well.
