The MMO offspring of the Monster Hunter franchise, Monster Hunter Frontier G, has been available for a while in Japan, with no hint of a Western release. However, in a recent internal interview, Yoshinori Ono stated that they have ported the game to various platforms to prepare for international release.

The letter “G” in the title implies it’s compatible with a wide range of platforms, including PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, and PC. We’re also planning to extend this support to PlayStation Vita. The reason why we have increased our support for so many hardware platforms is because we have our sights set on distributing services for this game in the future outside Japan. We simply can’t release a game as it is, but need to adapt all the necessary services to the unique characteristics of each region. In preparation for that, we’ve broadened our scope and started launching individual titles across multiple hardware platforms. 

No further explanation is given, but it seems as though Capcom is planning to release Monster Hunter Frontier G internationally. Whether anyone actually wants it or not remains to be seen. However, this trailer looks promising.

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.




  • Vita version here and I forgive you for MH4U Capcom

    Man, I HOPE this happens! 😀

    I would love for it to happen, but I’m sick of getting the shaft constantly. If it happens, I’ll get it, but I’m done hoping and holding my breath for Monster Hunter games outside of Nintendo platforms.

  • James Best

    That would be really nice.

    Would it be G or GG (the one with a slight graphics improvement)? Also I’m wondering if they’re keeping the subscription fee outside of Japan.

    getting the wii u version when it comes 😀
