A Capcom Employee (GregaMan) has posted on the Capcom Unity forums saying that we should not hold our breath for a Monster Hunter announcement in the west at E3. With many losing hope for another Monster Hunter release outside of Japan anytime soon, this does not give much hope.
Hang in there, guys. Unfortunately nothing’s been announced for the West and I can’t tell you to hold your breath for E3 either. But Monster Hunter’s not done in the West. It’s just going to take a little longer for something to hit our shores.
I know it’s been awhile since we’ve had a new MH game, but for what it’s worth, it ain’t cheap to keep those Tri servers running. Take that as a symbol of our ongoing stake in the franchise until we can get an actual game over here.
*UPDATE* Nintendo World Report has posted an article saying that Capcom will not have any playable releases of Monster Hunter at E3 this year, but does not rule out the announcement of a Monster Hunter game for the West. Lets hope Nintendo World Report is right and Gregman is just miss informed…
