Monster Hunter Frontier G, originally available on Xbox 360 and PC, is making its way to PlayStation 3 and Wii U, as well. The PS3 is getting the game on November 20 and the Wii U is getting it on December 11. The game will be free to download, though players will need to pay ¥1400 (roughly $14.28) per month. Capcom is giving a free trial period, however. The game will also come in a Beginner’s Package for ¥6090 ($62.10), which will include different pieces of equipment on each platform. The PS3 will get Stauros Sword, Rondo Sword, Klaus Hammer, Rune Hammer, Crossbow, Ewen Bow, and the Metry Series. The Wii U will get the Adonis Lapis, Melgai Desolf, Noctabult, Verona Massa, Genea Regilung, Genea Doule, and the Amiro Series. The Wii U will also get GamePad-only play, Pro controller support, and possibly some kind of 3DS functionality, though this is not yet confirmed. The PS3 version could have trophies, though this has also not been confirmed. There’s also talk of exporting Xbox 360 progress to the other platforms.

All in all, it looks like fans of Monster Hunter Frontier G are in for a treat this Holiday. There’s still no indication of a Western release, but we’ll keep you posted if and when a localization announcement is made.


About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.

    Monster Hunter Frontier G coming to Wii U and PS3! Yay! Only in Japan. Aww…

    • Lightthrower

      Yeah don’t hold your breath for a western release, won’t happen.

    I still won’t play any game with a monthly fee. I’d rather play offline anyway for a game like Monster Hunter, though it would be cool if there were full game local co-op.

    That’s it! We need a western release! Like, right now!

    i was especting it to be sold like a regular game at a retail price but as a monthly fee game… its gonna be a bit hard to keep me coming back after the free trial. still i will keep my eye on it

    • An Tran

      It’s an pay-to-play MMORPG, not a normal Monster Hunter game. And while pay-to-play is hopefully starting to die out, it still seems to be normal for Japanese gamers.

    I’m hoping Ultimate gets a port to the ps4 or 3. I’m also hoping 4 will get, not a port, but a release on the vita. I know Nintendo has an iron hold on the series, but one can hope.

    PS3? Hell…. I’ll make a Japanese PSN account and play… I’ll figure out the names and words… I’ve been wanting to learn Japanese anyways.
