    It's not a confirmation, but the wording seems to indicate that there is some forward movement on localization. This seems a bit more assured than the recent comments coming from Capcom.

    I swear if 3G only made it to Europe (like One Piece did) I'm really going to f**k the hell out of capcom.

    Monster Hunter isn't really a japanese exclusive series so I'm sure that 3g will come to other regions, especially with all the fuss everyone is making about it.
    Not releasing it in all regions is just shooting themselves in the foot.

    Well...

    Monster Hunter 3 got localized, Monster Hunter G did not.

    Monster Hunter Portable 1 got localized, Portable 3rd did not.

    It's not really easy to tell if Capcom will localize it or not.

    I...didn't know "Europe" was now "Western" releases. I'd love to see this come Stateside, though. It'd give me a chance to actually play a Monster Hunter game.

    Pretty much everything that isn't Japan is considered "Western" when it comes to game releases.

    Now, watch this be one giant mistake, all around based on one magazine's mistake. Wouldn't that be HILAAARRRRRIOUSS?

    Technically Europe is also west of Japan. Although it's also east of Japan... DAMN YOU SPHERICAL WORLD.

    But Europe is considered a "western" audience since its demographics and America's demographics are much more the same than Japan's. The market in Japan is a lot different than the market in Europe or America.

    It's obvious that NA and EU are going to get it. Capcom would be insane not to bring it here.

    It's just a matter of when. And looking at this, means it's sooner than I thought.

    Monster Hunter is nowhere near as popular in America/Europe than it is in Japan. It certainly wouldn't kill them to keep a game in Japan. Look at Portable 3rd.

    Ah, alright. I've never heard of EU considered part of the western audience, my bad.

    Back to school then, because during economics and geography it should have been brought up countless of times that Europe and America are considered as the Western world. If you're not convinced, then there's also wikipedia who says this on the subject of the Western world:
