Tom Whitehead argues the case for the divisive, demanding series

I'll put it out there right from the off — I'm no Monster Hunter veteran. Not by a long way, and in fact my first experience with the series was Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii. I played the campaign to completion and enjoyed it a lot, but it wasn't until Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate...

Epic

This is a big year for the Monster Hunter franchise, and Capcom has every reason to be happy with its current status. Monster Hunter 4 cruised past the company's sales targets for Japan, and in the process won't have done any harm to Nintendo's chances in retaining exclusivity of the franchise.

Now all we need is a western release, and we are good to go! Well, beside MH4, but if we get that we will be extremely lucky. (Has anyone heard of MH2 Dos? Yeah, neither did the localizers.)

Can you import characters from Monster Hunter 3 on the wii??? And it's annoying that the game doesn't have online. That might be a deal breaker right there.

Sad to say, but this game NEEDS Online Co-Op if it comes State-side or it'll flop. Heck, even in the UK. The Japanese are fine without net play, but further west people are much more spread out and don't always have people to play with. Hope they make our dreams come true!
