Monster Hunter 3 G is coming to 3DS, and it's bringing new features, monsters and more along with it.
Aside from the opinion-splitting analogue stick add-on the game will offer a form of lock-on camera control using the touch screen. When a large monster enters the area, tapping the target icon will activate the feature: press L and your view will automatically centre on the beast, or you can turn this feature on to fight with traditional camera controls. Interestingly the touch screen also has a virtual D-Pad on there, which we'd assume would be used for camera controls like the PSP versions, hopefully eliminating the need for hand cramps to see where you're going.
The game will also feature new and returning monsters. The main focus is on Blachydios, the new cover monster, a flightless wyvern whose forearms and nose are covered in an explosive slime. The water-based monster Plesioth returns, along with dragon variants Pink Rathian and Azure Rathalos.
Best of all, Monster Hunter 3 G is down for a Japanese release before the year is out. Capcom's Western wings are yet to make any announcement about releases outside of Japan, but as soon as we hear something, we'll let you know.
Monster Hunter coming to the 3DS?
I did not see that coming.
sady, no one likes MH3 on the Wii
This looks amazing!
dont know if its getting released here.how well did the wii one sell anyone know?hopefully we will get it im not mad about getting it.but it would be welcome
if these are 3ds screenies i am sooo getting this! looks amazing!
and MH3 for wii is still rocking my socks! over 800 hours playtime for me lol
Good to hear. That new monster looks interesting.
I reckon Plesioth was one of the harder monsters I fought on Freedom Unite. Wonder how it will fare underwater.
sadly i read this this morning http://nintendoeverything.com/73292/ hopefully they do localize it though
I'd wager my mint condition Metal Sonic figurine that "no plans for now" means "we have plans but can't talk about them".
Lately, Capcom has been on my S#!+ list. Monster Hunter would take it off.
Localizing this would be taking steps in the right direction after their MML3 fiasco. Not saying that Capcom are gonna be forgiven for that, but at least they'll be helping the 3DS out in hardware sales, especially in Japan
wow graphics look amazing
Looking pretty good.
Hopefully there'll be quite a lot of extra content that wasn't in Tri because I don't want to pay to get pretty much the same game I already have (possibly without online multiplayer)... but if it gets released here I know I'll end up buying it either way... Will give me something good to do on the way to Uni.
If this is more or less a remake of the Wii game there shouldn't be that much to localize imo. Or at least they could just copy and paste a lot of the existing localization.
Graphics look saweet! (Now localise please).
Oh my god looks amazing!!!!!!!!
just been looking at sum of screen shots at link below
market place looks alot more colorful.
i hope we see it over here soon love monster hunter on wii so fingers crossed they do right thing!!!!
YEAH! LOVE IT! DAY ONE BUY FOR ME!
I will buy this if it comes to the US for sure, but why does it have to be tied to that accessory monstrosity? Oh Nintendo, you've really gone off the deep end this time.
this looks awesome. but why forcing us to put that horrible and hugeanalog crap ??? will it even fit eith a nyko powerpak on ?
no way im leaving my nyko powerpak+ for that.
erm... this is tri with some extra monsters but no online play right?
I'd be interested if it was a new world with new monsters and online play. It would make me consider buying a 3ds.
Did you just say delicious? Reminds me of something:
Beats the monster without the add-on, ridiculously positive music starts playing*
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to this, even if the analog add-on is the unholiest abomination on Earth.
I think the Vita just took a hit in Japan
@1 There are a lot of people who enjoy the Wii version.
This looks better than the Wii version. Come on LOCALIZE IT CAPCOM!
Wow how did capcom keep this under wraps for so long. I mean really out in Japan before the years out wow! It better have online features or ill be ticked!!
After the success with Tri in North America, they'd be crazy not to bring it over. That and I really want to get in on this craze.
@24 Well considering many of Capcom's decisions in the last 2 years, I wouldn't put too much faith in their "sanity."
Me? I've made the decision not to get excited by anything announced by or for Nintendo until a US release is confirmed.
Plesioth, I hate you. Seriously, that's the mission I'm stuck at in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite right now.
Maybe I should play the Wii version?
Wii version is fantastic... easily logged over 400 hours... great game.... I hope there's some new areas... or new secrets in old areas... just something to keep it fresh!
wonder if the Jhen Moran is in this one!!!>..
Hm...with this game confirmed I wonder how many of those other 3DS rumours are correct.
Yay !!!!! and great, more waiting =(
Looks like I'll be flying to Japan to get it there =)
I SEE A BOW ON SCREEN 4 !! (FIRST TO NOTICE IT!)
NL, INCLUDE MY NAME WHEN BRINGING THIS STORY UP
@zionich The system is region locked. Unless you're buying the 3DS there as well.
Yep, gonna have to =) ITS MH !!!
I thought MHTri was beautiful. Same for P3rd on PSP.
But this.. Damn, impressive. Real impressive and a game that should demonstrate the raw power of the 3DS.
But anyways, I might get the slide pad attachment for at home use and use the virtual d-pad (Thank you Capcom. My request has been granted) when I'm on the go. Yet, I'd probably stay at home and play this for hours and hours
Capcom says there are no plans to release MHTriG outside of Japan...
that said: do you really think capcom would launch a MH game that doesn't ever get localized? preposterous!!!
Might wanna upgrade those earplugs to HGE with all these fanboys running around.
This game looks simply amazing. I will totally buy it when it comes out.
I honestly don't get why all these Japanese companies are doing that bullcrap. There's a huge fanbase for these games over here. They should ignore all the stupid "Come on bro! COD pwnz all, n00bs!" "gamers" and remember that some of us silly westerners actually like the stuff they make.
@goldgin Bow was already confirmed as one of the 12 available weapons
is this game coming to america?
@james yay bow
@james Wot? where (link)? Tri G was a rumor like, 10 NL posts ago... anyway, good to have confirmation
MH3G!!!! For Japan!
For some reason I believe this game will be released western next year:
Looks pretty cool.
