Every man and his dog is predicting a Monster Hunter reveal for 3DS soon: Mizuho Security pegged it for TGS 2011, and now another rumour has reared its monstrous head, claiming we'll see the game shown off next week.
The source of the rumour is an anonymous Internet poster claiming to work for the Computer Entertainment Suppliers Association — organisers of the Tokyo Games Show — who alleges we'll see a 3DS instalment titled Monster Hunter Tri G next week. The title will allegedly link to a home console game, either Monster Hunter 3 (~Tri) or an as-yet unannounced entry in the series.
Of course this isn't the first time we've heard a Monster Hunter 3DS rumour: back in April Ryuji Tsujimoto hinted at an announcement before Captivate 2011 came and went without a mention of MH3DS. It seems the game is tipped for a reveal at every media event, and next week is no exception.
The insider also claims we'll see a third outing in the Baten Kaitos series and a long overdue 3DS follow-up to Mach Rider.
Nintendo's "3DS new product announcement conference" will be live-streamed next week, so we'll finally know the truth then.
I read that post.
Seems to me to be a rumour but hey, would be amazing if everything he said was true.
OMG, please come out for 3DS so I can just go ahead and throw my Wii into the trash!!!!
Mach Rider if it were made by Monster id be over it
rumors are boring
I'll wait for announcements :3
I really dont wanna do this to myself again .....BUT ITS MONSTER HUNTER!!!!.....<pant>...<pant>
Though I do wonder how long it would take to come to the U.S. should it be true. Im still waiting on freedom 3 =(
Come on Capcom. Make my 3DS worth 250 green smackers.
Oh for crying out loud! Only reason I hate the internet! T.T
I am thinking this is big 3DS title that Nintendo is holding the pre-TGS event for.
Hum Baten Kaitos! Definitely interested in that one.
It better be a new moster hunter. I played the crap out of tri and i wont go back to it if its just new content.
An new Mach Rider! That is awesome
Baten Kaitos has to be true! Monolith! Please let it be true! It's the only thing I can think of in terms of the game being developed is the third in the series.
Hell... I'm more excited for Baten Kaitos 3 than another MH game :3
4chan is not a reliable source for rumors. Neither is NeoGAF.
We'll see. I won't buy it either way, but let's hope it's true. The more games the merrier!
I've never played the one currently out ... maybe I should.
Mach Rider has definitely piqued my interest.
the videos of the original NES game are intense
This may be a game-changer for me in terms of getting a 3DS or Vita.
You should, there's a reason why it's insanely popular. MH3 was my first try with the series and I have yet to put it down.
I hope this is true I hope this is true I hope this is true I hope this is true!
My hopes are gonna get crushed, aren't they?
If they do make a new Monster Hunter game will Capcom release it outside of Japan?
@Berzerker: If you'd actually throw a console in the trash...
Not something I can really understand.
Trash belongs in the trash.
Rumour: Capcom Might Announce Something at Announcement Event
@23: OMG that is so not true!
why am I less excited for this rumour, knowing it came from 4chan
may capcom fulfill our every wish and desire...
Hmm... All of those options sound good! Mach Rider especially sounds interesting.
Meh, neither of these choices interest me.
If it happens it might be the first Monster Hunter game I buy, also I just followed the link to Mach Rider, what the hell that game looks awesome. Why wasn't it included with the 10 free 3DS games?
it would be great to get MH on 3DS, but i am thinking that there are too many MH coming out for Sony devices.. in fact they have pretty much raised the sales of PSP single-handedly! So i would think that Capcom would prefer to give it to Vita than 3DS.
It be a great move on Nintendo's behalf to release MH on 3DS as it would boost their sales. However they would have to release it in the West as well. I'm dying for a new MH game ever since Tri came out but I won't hold my breath on it just yet; MHP3rd got release last December on the PSP and there is still no confirmation from Capcom that it will arrive to our shores.
At this point considering how badly organised the 3DS launch was it be best for Nintendo to work with Capcom and release MH, anywhere.
Any other game is always a plus.
Those are some awesome news, I really enjoyed Tri, being able to play it on the go would make it even better, and being able to transfer our characters from Tri would be just perfect. I must say, however, that the title Tri G feels a missed opportunity, they should totally go for Tri D.
Tri D? wtf? G means like 'expansion' or something in japan.
They might rename it as they did with MHF2G (renamed to MHFU for west) since there haven't been any Gs released here yet.
I really want a Monster Hunter game for the 3DS!!!! Make it happen Capcom please!!!!
This would be my first 3DS game for sure. RIght now I'm living off the NES classics, waiting for something big like this.
The only reason I would want a 3DS. And before anyone freaks out it's nothing against Nintendo I don't like any hand held gaming systems.
I would really like a Tri g to be released for 3DS. If the same game were to be released for vita and 3ds, then I would just get the vita version, but with different games, then I would gladly get both for the different experiences.
also, here's hoping for cross game play between wii and 3ds versions(should they actually come out )
i really hope this rumour becomes a reality i would love to play MH on the go
Yeah its pretty much confirmed.
"It's that time again"
What time is that? Silly season?
"and a long overdue 3DS follow-up to Mach Rider"
Nah! Maybe the original Mach Rider as a 3D classic. But not a real sequel!
they confirmed MH3G, they have their own web site, they also said they might release this game this year so cant wait
without online playing mode -.-"
