Monster Hunter Portable 3G Announced
Capcom’s big franchise hits yet another platform, but it’s bringing something extra for its 3Ds debut….
It may not have exactly caught on in North America or Europe, but in Japan, the Monster Hunter series is huge. Huge.
If anything is going to increase hardware sales in Japan, it’s a new Monster Hunter game. To that end, Nintendo must be very thankful for Capcom releasing a new portable iteration for their system during its tough times.
Titled Monster Hunter Portable 3G (which, incidentally, does not feature 3G connectivity), this portable version of Monster Hunter Tri features the usual additions and features in previous titles, although one advantage the 3DS version has over the PSP edition is the ability to swim underwater and hunt some of the deadliest aquatic enemies known to fans.
But the bigger addition is the included right circle pad attachment, of which you can see for yourself here. As expected, the new attachment will allow for a free roaming camera, which is integral for keeping players up to date on monsters that tend to attack from all sides.
No word yet if either the game or the attachment will make its way stateside.
