Capcom Considering Monster Hunter 3 G Western Release

Posted by James Newton

Never say never

Despite rumours to the contrary, Monster Hunter 3 G is still not confirmed for release outside of Japan. Does that mean it will never leave the Land of the Rising Sun though? Capcom fielded that exact question during a recent investor Q&A call, and although the answer isn't the life-changing announcement some might hope for it's at least confirmation Capcom is mulling over a Western release:

Q What are your overseas plans for “Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) G”?
A Our stance for the overseas distribution of this title is the same as for the entire “Monster Hunter” series. We are selling the preceding title “Monster Hunter Tri” overseas so we will consider launching this title overseas, too. But no decision has been reached yet.

Good to see Capcom sticking to the tried-and-true "we have nothing to announce at this time" line.

I may not pick this up. If it doesn't have wifi, I have no want for it as the online multiplayer was the best part of the series.

Oh my gosh! I was so excited about the Limited Edition Zelda 3DS that I totally forgot about this one! I think buying this 3DS bundle would be a better use of my money, because then I'd be buying a game I don't have.
Although the Zelda one is so much sexier
Hopefully Capcom will let us have this. :o

I think it'd be a mistake for them not to release it, even a bigger mistake than not releasing Xenoblade in NA

good to hear that capcom are still mulling over releasing it in the west. looks cool and will probably make up for the cancelled megaman legends.

nice 3DS monster hunter design as well.

I'll only get it if it has a Slide Pad in the box. Otherwise, I'm saving my money for the like 8 games coming out this Christmas I'm no doubt going to miss due to living in a town devoid of games, and will promptly need to order and break the bank... again.

Yeah they BETTER consider it. xD
They wanted to send Portable 3rd over but couldn't, they can just send this over since it has most of 3rd's stuff. xD

The lack of online multiplayer has kind of dampened my enthusiasm for this game but I actually still want it. I really hope that this game does get localized. If the Circle Pad Pro is going to be coming out here then they should release Monster Hunter 3 G. After all, isn't this the game that birthed the existence of the Circle Pad Pro? Seems logical to release them both.

I doubt this will happen, I'm sure Crapcom will just give us Super Street Fighter 5: Ultimate Super Arcade Maximum Master Smackdown Vs. Raw Edition instead...

Considering that I only played with my gf online, I'll definitely consider getting this...
The online was amazing, but having to "keep up" with all the other players (what with the new challenges that everyone kept beating left and right) always made me not want to play after taking a break from the game for a week... I'd actually be fine with this not being online-mostly gameplay... makes me less worried about keeping up.

Stop stalling Capcom!!! You should know there are plenty of American fans now! How would it make them feel to wait another entire year!? Or not publishing overseas at all??? The Monster Hunter Hype would be all for nothing!!

Holy crap, that 3DS is... :O

I'd love to get it, but if it doesn't get out by Christmas, I'll be forced to get the regular Ice White/Super Mario 3D Land Bundle. ...Sigh.

it just has to be releases in America. I need more MH! As a Veteran from the origional MH, i would just die if it wasn't! On a side note, that 3DS is amazing! Bracchidios symbol looks epic, and the actual monster looks like a heck of a fight.

I can't believe the guys that don't want to buy this game cuz there's no online multiplayer. I'd rather play with people I know. I'd also like to be able to play multiplayer missions later on so my copy isn't worthless because the servers got shut down. Isn't that a good thing? All this hatred for games without online is stereotyping us western gamers. That's why they have so much trouble localizing these games. Because we're apparently more interested in FPS's and casual party games!

Sure, but include the ability for 1 analog and touch screen controls please. I am NOT buying that... thing... to play this. If that "thing" is required to play this, count me a pass on this game.
