Nintendo has just announced via its Japanese Twitter account that there will be a Monster Hunter Nintendo Direct this week.

The broadcast will take place on Thursday, October 27th, at 8PM Japanese standard time. There's no indication of what this Direct will cover at present, but it's worth noting that Nintendo has used the original Monster Hunter logo in the tweet.

Could that mean a remaster of the PS2 game that started the entire series, or is this going to be an entirely new game? Could this be for the recently-revealed Nintendo Switch? Perhaps we're getting ahead of ourselves and this will simply be more DLC content for Monster Hunter Generations or Monster Hunter Stories?

EDIT: A Google translation of the official site claims that the broadcast won't contain anything about Switch or smartphones, which would suggest this is 3DS or Wii U-related.

Let us know what you think by posting a comment.
