Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Coming West in Early 2015


Things were looking bleak for Western fans of Capcom’s creature bashing series Monster Hunter, as the Japanese publisher has kept its lips sealed tight about a Monster Hunter 4 release outside of Japan. Fans can finally put their mind to rest, however, as Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (4G in Japan), an enhanced version of 4, will be hitting Western shores in early 2015 on the 3DS. A long ways off to be sure, but it’s better than no game at all.


The game will have an emphasis on multiplayer, featuring online play and a list of other unannounced new additions. My fingers are still crossed for a Wii U version, but a 3DS exclusive would still be excellent. Capcom released a promotional video along with the announcement, which you can see below.
