Capcom has announced Monster Hunter 4, a second Monster Hunter game for 3DS.
This is major news... right? I hear this franchise is big in Japan, isn't a Monster Hunter game best selling on the PSP?
One could make the argument Monster Hunter in Japan is what Call of Duty is in America.
Wow, really? And who was that weird Japanese Dora the Explorer? I hear that chick is big in Japan too? Seems like the 3DS is going to do pretty damn well in Japan even past the usual suspects. I was pretty uninterested in anything I did not immediately know though. But new Fire Emblem game!
That's really a great way to describe it, kudos to ya sir.
MH is COD huge. I only wished Capcom would finally make a real next gen MH game. Glad MH3 is coming to PS3 and all, but still.
this game is prob one of the only and biggest reasons the psp sold in asia
Its the reason it kept selling.
big news cant wait for sony conference. also the article doesnt mention whether mh4 is exclusive to 3ds so it may be mulitplat, which is pretty weird in the portable space at least in japan. Still big coup for nintendo
In what way my good Naruto fan? Megaton implies that this news shakes the foundation of gaming, and I don't see that happening what with Capcom basically admitting that they don't care enough about Monster Hunter to even try to make it big outside of Japan.
Holy Crap damn you nintendo you just made my 3ds or vita choice a little bit harder >:|
Not really that hard of a choice lol
i enjoy the games that are coming to both, lol so kinda for me
Well Monster Hunter 4 is also coming to Vita so.... but based on your username we already know you're getting a 3DS.
my body is ready! now i must save up for a 3ds xD
Big game in Japan. Monster Hunter 3G looked liked a rehash of PSP's Monster Hunter Tri, so it was nice seeing something new in the Monster Hunter series.
monster hunter 3G is actually a port with new monsters and quests of monster hunter 3 (the one on wii)
You mean the Wiis Monster Hunter Tri?
......why can't we have a monster hunter on the systems for once in a long time
For 3DS? Come on, make one for PS3!
ps3 owners r to busy with fps games so they wont make a new 1 for it until the sales role in for the portable hd mh tro g come in
Capcom just doesn't learn. They refuse to make Monster Hunter as big as it can be. First they cancelled Monster Hunter 3 for the PS3, which would have no doubt gained it global recognition thanks to the fact that the PS3 has a better online gaming platform than current Nintendo offerings (console or handheld), now they put the game on the failing 3DS. It's like Capcom wants to piss people off and have their games fail (or in this case only do well in a small region). Ah well. Guess some need to learn the hard way.
"They refuse to make Monster Hunter as big as it can be." You are aware that HD game worlds have been criticized for being too linear right? The Wii was the leading home console at the time, it was the cheapest cost for development AND Nintendo helped promote it in the West. Why should MH4 on 3DS be unexpected at all?
I will play Monster Hunter on the PS Vita, there it will be in all it's glory and Beautiful graphics. @above I think the folks over at Capcom are losing their minds. It's started happening right after Street Fighter 4...or was it Resident Evil 4?
its gonna come out for Vita too come guys lmao, and with better graphics and controls lol and online and trophies...and party system ...and other stuff. cmon
sure just like monster hunter 3 did it, and DQIX, and DQX... how about you actually wait until they announce something before making that kind of assumptions
and online? im sure they both will since it technicly took the psps next gen system to add online play
... In Japan.
Nintendo needed something like this.
SO glad they didn't announce a redesign. Looks like I'll be getting a 3DS next month.
Really liked the fact that Mario Tennis is returning. I was disappointed when both that and Mario Golf no showed on the Wii.
Of all the other systems they could put MH4 on they chose the 3ds. >:(
It will be on Vista too. Nintendo probably paid time exclusive.
nah. i think they gonna skip vista and release it for windows 7 instead........
This conference was kind of a disappointment. MH4 is a great announcement but after the build-up to this event, I expected better from Nintendo.
W00T! Monster Hunter Dragon Quest Nintendo has all the popular Japan IPs.
W00T! DragonQuest with always on internet connection DRM!
so 1st you troll that the PS3 has better online and thats why Monster Hunter should be there, but then you complain that you need to be online to play DQX??? also, why would anyone complain that a game that looks to be closer to an MMORPG than anything, complain that they have to be connected to the internet to play?? Even more, WHO THE F*** IS NOT CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET 24/7 ON THEIR CONSOLES THESE DAYS... i suggest you take some lessons on trolling cause you are not very good at it
Don't screw us PS3 owners capcom or prepare to get ripped a new one!
And boom goes the dynamite..huge!
Nintendo went in hard on the game announcements. But what I don't understand is why Capcom is providing the 3DS with two Monster Hunter games and so far, haven't announced any for Vita. Surely if they wanted to push the franchise, the better hardware would be the logical choice. That's my number one complaint of the Monster Hunter series. It has so much potential and Capcom does nothing with it. Good news though. A lot of 3DS games announced. The haters can now simmer down.
Why no Resident Evil for Vita too? Its a good question, but maybe its got to do with the fact that Nintendo sold more consoles last gen.
i thought capcom said they were shifting development away from the 3ds... capcom really is becoming the japanese activision...
I'm bummed by this news to be honest. Was finally looking forward to playing with 2 analog nubs on a PS Vita. Getting smashed back to a 1 nub system like the PSP and 3DS....
