Monster Hunter Demo for PSP Live on PSN Today!

100°
268w ago - Capcom's Shawn Baxter has announced that today the Monster Hunter Demo for PSP is now live on Sony's PlayStation Network.

To quote: the official demo will be live today (once the PlayStation Store is updated - keep an eye on the PlayStation.Blog) and loaded with brand new monsters. There's three quests to choose from: Hypnocatrice, Plum Hermitaur, and an Epic Hunting Quest with three monsters to slay.

Aside from new monsters, there's also pre-made characters for each weapon type to choose from. Great Sword, Long Sword, Sword, Dual Blades, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Lance, Gun Lance, Light Bowgun, Heavy Bowgun, and Bow... They're all there. We've crammed as much into the demo as we could. You'll be hunting in the forest, the desert, and in the swamp.

Monster Hunter just wouldn't be the same without co-op, so the demo is fully capable of four player ad-hoc co-op! The demo isn't going to just leave you to fend for yourself if you aren't playing ad-hoc. If you play single player, you'll have your choice to bring one of three Felyne Fighters with you. There's Kota a Melee Fighter, and then there's Ginger a Bomber, and finally Melody a Support type.

Now that you have a chance to finally hop into MHFU, we have a brand new set of videos coming to teach you some...

275w ago - Capcom Product Marketing Manager Colin Ferris shared some details on the upcoming Monster Hunter PSP title as follows:

The upcoming release of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is exciting to everyone involved in the title. For those who don't know, Monster Hunter puts you on the hunt for a variety of majestic beasts that you have to defeat in order to become the ultimate hunter.

With thousands of different types of weapons and armor, as well as over 500 hours of gameplay, this is the most engrossing action/RPG title for the PSP ever created.

What really makes the game shine, however, is the excellent multiplayer that makes use of the PSP's built-in Ad-hoc multiplayer.





Join with three of your friends to hunt monsters that you simply couldn't defeat on your own. Playing the game with friends is truly the best way to play it, and with the PSP's network abilities, everyone has their own screen to play on.

Though we've had an awesome group of core fans in the US, our goal is to let everyone experience the adventure with Monster Hunter this time around. To introduce you all to the world of Monster Hunter, we've put together this "newscast" with our intrepid reporter covering the imminent onslaught of monsters...
 

Capcom: Monster Hunter G to Include Monster Hunter 3 Demo

286w ago - Capcom has revealed that Monster Hunter G will be available on April 23, 2009. It has also been revealed that the game will also come with a demo for the upcoming Monster Hunter 3.

To quote: Capcom announced today final release and pricing details for Monster Hunter G. The Wii version of the 2005 PlayStation 2 Monster Hunter update will arrive on April 23 carrying a price point of 3,990 yen.

Online play for the game will not be free, Capcom also confirmed today. While not sharing specifics, the company said that players will use WiiPoints for online play transactions.

Perhaps bigger than the release date and pricing news, however, is news on what's included with the game. All copies of Monster Hunter G will come with two items: a promotional card for the Monster Hunter Hunting Card card game, and a demo for the upcoming Monster Hunter 3.

289w ago - Monster Hunter 3 is still in development and has yet to be released, but that isn't stopping the announcement of another Monster Hunter title that will end up on the Nintendo Wii.

According to the latest edition of Famitsu, Monster Hunter G will be heading to the Wii.

The game originally was released on the PS2 and then moved to the PSP for a European and North American release.

Monster Hunter G marks the second time a game in the series will launch on a Nintendo platform.

We'll have more news as it becomes available.
 

Rumor: Monster Hunter 3 Coming to PlayStation Portable

291w ago - As a follow-up to our previous article, according to a rough translation of Chinese site CNGBA (linked above) citing a Japanese magazine scan, a Capcom Official said in a recent interview that they have not yet decided if Monster Hunter 3 will be a Wii exclusive.

The site speculates that a portable version of Monster Hunter 3 for the PSP is likely to exist.

While there is still no concrete evidence to back up these claims, the idea of Monster Hunter 3 heading to PlayStation Portable is quite feasible if history repeats itself... based on Capcom's success with portable gaming consoles.

Needless to say, until official confirmation is available this is being dubbed a rumor.
