The limited edition console

Monster Hunter 3 G is just two months away from launching in Japan, with a lot resting on its broad warrior's shoulders. For maximum impact, Nintendo and Capcom have teamed up to provide two limited edition bundles that should hopefully turn excitement into sales.

First off is the limited edition Monster Hunter 3 G 3DS console. Containing a copy of the game, charger, AR cards and 2GB SD card, it's a white machine bearing an illustration of Blachydios and the game's logo, and will retail for 20,800 Yen.

For those who've already picked up the console, there'll also be a bundle containing the game and Nintendo's new Circle Pad Expansion, which is expected to sell for around 6,990 Yen. The game will also sell on its own for 5,800 Yen, as the Circle Pad Expansion isn't required to play.

Still no word on a Western release, so hold tight.
