That's a long time

Edited by Lausebub

@gesi1223: Which is great, because I have yet to put in MH 3 Ultimate despite owning both versions of the game.

Glad to see this, but i suppose it was too much to hope for another WiiU release.

So is Monster Hunter a Nintendo exclusive affair?

I'm not really interested in picking up a 3DS but if there would be a Monster Hunter on PS4 I would definitely check it out.

Edited by EthanML

Wow, they really pushed the boat out on this announcement production-wise didn't they?

Seriously though, I've been considering picking up MH3 for the 3DS for a while so maybe this is a sign.

Posted by soulcake

Great i bought MH3 a few days back and really enjoying it.

Posted by Humanity

Big announcement, we're graciously allowing you westerners to purchase and play our cool monster game, you're welcome.

Well thanks Capcom, that's really nice of you.

It may be at least another year out, but the prospect of finally being able to try the multiplayer in MH (I have MH3U for the 3ds, for reference) is getting me all excited. That and the freaking cat companion. Okay, I'm probably more jazzed about the cat. The wait won't be too bad considering that I haven't actually beaten MH3U yet.

No reason to count it out yet. The WiiU version of MH3U was also announced way later and since that version did pretty good for Capcom, I think we'll hear something on that over the course of the year...

i haven't payed attention to Monster Hunter since i played the demo for the original that came with DMC3. it got pretty mental in those 9 years huh. might check it out if i actually finally pick up a 3ds

Posted by jayc4life

I have MH3U in my sights as I got a 3DS just before Christmas, but this being able to play online without needing the Wii U as a stepping stone is phenomenal news. Definitely buying this, might even go day 1 on it.

Posted by onarum

2015? goddamn...

well at least it's coming! me and my MH3U machine 3DS can't wait.

Edited by NegativeCero

Just in time for the Japanese announcement of 4G. I might just wait for that one to come here.

Edit: so apparently that is the one coming. I'm a happy camper now.

Posted by LustRazor

I never realized how odd the first letter 'C' in Capcom looks until now.

Posted by Reisz

yaaaay. . . Another Monster Hunter game that should have been on Vita get's to be on the handheld that has the least appropriate button layout for Monster Hunter games. Wii U would have been a great move for 4 Ultimate in the west. The 3DS is big over here but not like it is in Japan.

Well, we've had the 2DS I can still dream about a 3DSXL revision with two sticks and better button placement.

God damn this would have been good on Vita.

Posted by MormonWarrior

Hoo boy I didn't expect it to be that long a wait. Well whatever...I only just barely got MH3U for my Wii U so I've got plenty to play.

Posted by SpoogeMcduck

Is this that pokemans I hear everyone talking about?

Posted by TheRealMoot

Now just come with a matching 3DS and I'am good to go!

Posted by nantukoprime

@shevar: not exclusive given its history, but recently the ones coming over here (ie the Ultimate or G versions) have been exclusive to Nintendo.

There is hope that the redo of Monster Hunter Frontier (their MMO-like game) will be ported to things other than PC. Whether it comes over here...

Basically these games come out on whatever Capcom gets incentivized to put them out on.

Don't you toy with my emotions like that! Don't you do it!

When this game comes out, my live as I know it is over.

Posted by WeaponBoy

If they ever do make a Wii U version please make it a better port than 3U was, because man that was rough. Worse FPS than the 3DS version in a lot of places despite just being an up-ressed port.

And keep Frontier the fuck away from everything. That game is evil. Not in a 'so much fun it ruins your life' way, but in a 'holy fuck, what kind of sociopath designed this game' way.

Posted by djou

What? They didn't even show any damn gameplay. :(

Posted by CaptainJudaism

It's gonna be a long year waiting for this game but hey, at least we're going to get the Ultimate edition which is usually the last rendition of the set when it comes to Monster Hunter so that's good. I can't wait to play it online since no one around me plays the Monster Hunter games so the lack of online play, at least for the 3ds, was a killer for me.

Posted by MrOldboy

Sad they never bothered to do at least a text translation for NA/EU of MH4, the people who would buy MH4 would have probably bought MH4U as well.

Posted by SkankinPacman

@djou: What? They showed a ton.

Also, I am not sure how I feel about the jumping and being able to jump on monsters. That just doesn't feel monster hunty to me. Guess we will see when it comes out though.

Posted by AngeTheDude

Man, I like the idea of Monster Hunter, but I had absolutely no fun playing MH3 Ultimate at all. It felt like a busted-ass PS2 game.

Edited by Kaigan

I love Monster Hunter games, but fuck playing them on a handheld. The Vita I could see as an exception, but that's never going to happen.

Here's to hoping for a Wii U version.

Posted by Flappybat

@insane_shadowblade85: Monster Hunter Frontier is said to be the worst parts of the grind despite having a subscription fee.

Edited by Pierre42

Such an amazing bit of news today =D Literally the best case scenario in my head for this game.

It's still on 3DS (I was worried they'd flip flop to another console necessitating a purchase of a Vita)

It's the final "Ultimate/G" version (I was worried we'd get the equivalent of MH3P on PSP)

It's coming!

Posted by MonkeyKing1969

I've just never been able to get into the structure of the game play. The look has always been intriguing, but the feel of the world and mechanism of hunt/combat have always just tuned me off.

I look at it, I say "Cool hunting monsters and then harvesting supplies from the monsters I capture...i" t will working like THIS, right? Wrong! It works some other bizarre way that is a total turn-off that makes the the monster un-fun to hunt, the crafting un-fun to do, the play area unpleasantly closed in...yuck.

Posted by Orange_Pork

Really unfortunate that it's still only on a handheld. Maybe something will change between now and this time next year.

He seems to be saying a heck of a lot more than what's subtitled.

Edited by Shortbreadtom

Get hyped.

Before any newcomers buy this game on the 3DS though, you should get the Circlepad Pro. Makes it infinitely more playable, if infinitely less portable.

Posted by MeatSim

I don't even know if the world will last until 2015.

Posted by Karkarov

Too bad it isn't coming to WiiU... sigh...

Something tells me the online multiplayer will be a nightmare, like Animal Crossing.

@reisz: You may require a 3DS Circle Pad Pro.

Posted by TheTerribleFamiliar

As long as they have online play in the 3ds version, I'll forgive them for not releasing it on the Wii U as well. I do enjoy longer play sessions on the big TV though. I'll miss that when 4 releases.

While I prefer using the CPP myself, I know of a number of players that prefer using the target lock and left trigger. I played 3U for a good 40 or so hours before getting the CPP and while it's nice to have, I definitely don't think it's required or anything.

MH4 also removes swimming, which was really the biggest problem in terms of controls.

The success of the 3DS in Japan and the general preference for handhelds seems to indicate that it's where they're staying for a little while. If PS4's Japan launch is a blowout success and completely revives the console market there, maybe we'll see that change.
