So, despite everyone's biggest hopes and best intuition, Capcom's Captivate 2011 event came and went without even so much of a sniff of Monster Hunter 3DS.

Capcom Europe confirmed via Twitter that there was no Monster Hunter content shown off at the event last week, nor were there any Ace Attorney-related revelations either.

In fact, there were no new games for Nintendo formats revealed, with the only update of interest for Nintendo fans being new screens, artwork and trailers for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.

We always hate to be the bearers of bad news, but look on the bright side: at least there's E3 in June, right?
