Monster Hunter Frontier G has been released on PC, Xbox 360, Wii U and is scheduled for release on PlayStation Vita for 2014 in Japan. No release date has been given for a western release. However, a quote from Capcom icon Yoshinori Ono gives reason to suggest that the massively popular online multiplayer game may be broaching the west.
In a inter-company interview Yoshinori Ono talked about why Monster Hunter Frontier G was being ported to so many different platforms:
"The reason why we have increased our support for so many hardware platforms is because we have our sights set on distributing services for this game in the future outside Japan. We simply can’t release a game as it is, but need to adapt all the necessary services to the unique characteristics of each region. In preparation for that, we’ve broadened our scope and started launching individual titles across multiple hardware platforms."
Fantastic news all around for Hunters, seeing as we have Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on the horizon, also. You could say we are being spoilt with all of this good news coming from the Monster Hunter series... Wait, who am I kidding?
So, Capcom, come on. Give us one more game full of monster slaying quests.
