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.
