It’s been a long time coming, but the PS Vita is finally getting a Monster Hunter title next year -a genuine system seller in Japan. Admittedly, it’s only a port of the PC MMORPG, Monster Hunter Frontier G from 2007. The game will also be making its way to the PS3 and Wii U later this year complete with extra monsters and worlds. The PS3/Vita versions will also share some unique content.
We’re presuming the Vita game will be taking the same release structure as the console and PC versions by being a free download, but with monthly subscriptions required. The chances of the game seeing a western release are very slim, but if the game takes off in Japan it may encourage Capcom to stop fawning over Nintendo platforms and get behind the Vita for once with regular Monster Hunter releases which would boost sales of the flagging console significantly.
We’ve got a trailer for you after the break.
