Monster Hunter is huge in Japan but can it possibly enjoy the same level of success when it's released in Europe this week? The thing is you can never second guess these things. ONM remembers when Nintendo announced that the phenomonally successful Dr Kawashima's Brain Training would be coming out in Europe and thinking that it would never take off over here in the same way. How wrong they were. If Brain Training can be a global success, surely Monster Hunter can. After all hitting monsters with big sticks has got to be more fun than maths, right?
Well two people who don't doubt the accessibility of Monster Hunter Tri are the game's producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and director Kaname Fujioka who said that anyone can enjoy Monster Hunter Tri.
