Monster Hunter: PS Vita To Release This Year


It was the catalyst for exponential 3DS sales in Japan. Matter of fact Monster Hunter has been the game Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo turn to when they want to move consoles in Japan. PS Vita hasn’t been faring too well in said rejoin, who you gonna call? Definitely not Ghost Busters.

No. In a situation like this, you call on Capcom to forge you a PS Vita Monster Hunter title, and according to PlayStation France CEO Philippe Cardon, there’s one in the works as we speak.

“The games available at launch in Japan do not correspond to the typology of the Japanese public. It lacks a particular game, Monster Hunter, scheduled for the coming months,” Cardon said while speaking to Le Point.

“Had it been there from the start in Japan, the story would have been different,” he added.

As for Sony execs being nervous about the console’s longevity, and fans debating whether they should buy a Vita upon launch, or wait a bit longer, Carbon said: “We must put things into perspective and stay calm.”

Thanks, VG247.

    i really don’t understand why people are making a big deal about the vita sales of japan when the system hasn’t even came out everywhere else. lets face it japan is no longer a majority of the gaming market anymore and hasn’t been for this whole gen. the games at launch are to appeal to western audiences middle western such as north america and europe. now granted is that a bad thing not necessarily, but then again that’s up for you to decide.

    True, Ghost. I mean look at 360, the console sell’s nothing in Japan but sells tens of millions elsewhere.

    there worried because JP has more ps3s per head then EU or the states, $ony devices have always been much more popular in japan.
    hell when a previous 7 year old system is outselling a brand new system you know your in trouble!
    its a shame monster hunter was not ready for release, never really understood why its so dam popular, i mean its ok but its not THAT good!
    would of changed allot of things if it was, but compacting the issue theres really no good RPGs out for the vita yet.
    not even in the foreseeable future.

    I have high hopes for Vita, really. I do. But things are not looking good. Again, let’s wait to see how the West turns out before calling the funeral home.

    no ones calling the funeral home.
    its going to have the same life as the ps3 did.
    dead on arrival, then miraculously revived 3 years later.

    i just hope by then $ony has removed all the stupid pain in the a$$ restrictions!
    if not, then ill be calling the funeral home.
