To quote: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is just around the corner. It's hitting the shelves on this Tuesday, June 23rd. I've talked a bit about the game previously when we released the demo a few weeks back, and now you get the chance to dive into one of the most immersive PSP games available.

Taking pieces of the monsters you've carved off, and items you've gathered in the world give you the means to create thousands of unique pieces of armor and weapons. With so much to customize, you'll probably never run into anyone with the same setup as you.

Being that the game is so large, you'll never run out of things to do. There's literally over 500 quests to go on, and you can even take...
