    The series may soon be branching out in the handheld space even further, as Capcom Europe COO David Reeves implied Monster Hunter would make its way to the PS Vita and 3DS in an interview with the Middle East-focused MEGamers.

    "I think down the road, you could probably see a Monster Hunter iteration somewhere. Probably on both of them," [/p]

    I'd love a MH game for the 3DS [​IMG]

    misleading title >.>
    he didn't really imply anything either. just said he 'thinks' there 'could' 'eventually' be a title on the next-gen handhelds. but why would he say otherwise?

    The big issue with a MH 3DS is that it has been mainly focused on ad-hoc multiplayer. Unless Capcom changes that with the iteration of the game (and they've had plenty of opportunities to do it for the PSP versions) or Nintendo changes the way it handles it's handheld/console connection, it's doomed on the 3DS outside of Japan. Sony has at the very least set up a backbone with Ad-hoc Party.

    Really don't care, played only one Monster Hunter title on the PSP, even though I enjoyed it for a day, it's not that kinda game on which I'd go "WOW!!" if it were to be announced on the latest handheld 3DS.

    Hence I said 'hints'! What's so misleading, did I say confirm or anything?

    And that's bad? Monster Hunter is a portable game.

    Two of 'em? Madness!

    And so it starts... the battle for the best handheld version of MH this generation. Knowing the impact MH had on PSP in Japan, it might be vital to the success of either handheld.

    I'm not pissing on your thread heartgold but the Monster Hunter I bought for my PSP was terrible. So boring.

    It's bad at least in the U.S and various other countries. Seriously, how many people are getting spotpasses in the U.S. on a regular basis. It works in Japan because of the huge population density.

    They should call it "UrbanPass". Because only works at urban zones.

    If that doesn't spell "Monster Hunter", I don't know what does.

    You're mixing the terms here. You're talking about Street pass and I don't see how that can make a MH game any damage.

    Getting street pass hits doesn't by any means affect the online experience on the 3DS, given that Steet Pass and Spot Pass are two ways of connection separated of each other

    SHUT UP, CAPCOM. JUST TAKE MY FUCKING MONEY ALREADY.

    Please, have a 3DS release. I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    On Vita, It's expected (for me at least) as MH has always been a majority PS Portables enterprise.

    For 3DS, that's a liitle surprising!

    Can't wait to hear on news for both versions.

    Yeah... Wasn't this expected? Monster Hunter is basically the one game that would make the Vita an instant hit. Same goes with the 3DS, I guess.

    I always hated the MH series, but it seems like everyone loves them. Oh well.

    Screw that, give us Frontier!
    ...Actually, give us this too... but Frontier needs to be overseas.

    Frankly speaking, I really gave up my hopes on this...

    Now, maybe it's real after all?? Hopefully.
