September 14 is the day Monster Hunter 4 will be released on the 3DS... in Japan. The game hasn't even been announced for any other market, despite the success of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Err, well, if any game on the Wii U can be a success at this stage. Never mind that, because we wants it, we must have it, and hopefully Capcom getting this business done now means we'll hear more about our version at E3.
What will be will be. For now we'll just have to admire what's been provided to Japan. We've got the latest trailer for Monster Hunter 4, dropped in a Japan-exclusive Nintendo Direct event today. Also, we can stare wantonly at the newly announced limited edition Monster Hunter 4 3DS XLs. Yup, there's two of them! We'll be lucky if even one of the suckers comes overseas, though.
Ah, Monster Hunter 4. I wonder if we'll see you within a year's time. Will you be released as a 3DS/Wii U port or will you come overseas as a straight 3DS port? Will we only get you after you've been improved into some sort of half-sequel? Will we see you at all? The mysteries of Capcom are deep and complex. Soon, hopefully we'll have our answers. Soon.
