There it is - in print, no less!

Capcom has confirmed that its long-awaited Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) will be launched in Japan on the 1st of August. A limited edition bundle will be available for collectors to wet themselves over.

Capcom has confirmed that a Western release is happening, but given the late arrival of the Japanese version it's probably not going to come out here until at least 2010.
