Electronic Theatre E3 2008 Preview: Monster Hunter 3

The Monster Hunter series is revered by fans, and closely safeguarded by Capcom. The series has so far been benefit to a PlayStation2 release and two PlayStation Portable titles in Europe – of which, it is highly regarded that Monster Hunter: Freedom and Monster Hunter: Freedom 2 alone "saved" the PlayStation Portable system in Japan; a feat that not even the mighty Final Fantasy series was able to accomplish, despite also having pretty enviable sales figures. After the cancellation of the one-time exclusive PLAYSTATION3 title, Monster Hunter 3, and it's realignment for Nintendo's Wii, most were expecting to see it on show at this year's E3, at least in video format.

Lost almost all hope for this game, not hearing much about it lately and it "supposedly" supposed to be coming out early of next year. I mean come on new screens or trailer would be ideal :(

Hopefully there not trying to think up a lot of new ideas, they already have all the monsters if they look at Frontier, and 2G. All they will probably be working on is the motion controls and possible the use of the GC controller (If they do).
