    I was checking out Kotaku.com today, and I found this article:

    "And so the natural progression begins anew. We see blurry shots of a Japanese game from scans of a Japanese mag, then a few days later, they get around to releasing those same screenshots for the rest of us. Looking pretty sharp there, Capcom. Thanks for taking the time to actually push the limits of the hardware. Plenty more at the link below."

    D: Feels bad, man?

    Well, either way, we get a screenshot. And seeing as it was mentioned in Kotaku, I'm guessing the project is progressing?

    As far as I can remember. it was supposedly a PS3 game originally, but Capcom changed their minds and put it on the wii instead when they realised they would make a ton more money.

    From all accounts, a possible playable version well be at the Tokyo Game Show. So, is it progressing?...Yea. The problem, they haven't really announced whether or not the game will hit any other regions.

    It probably will. We've had quite a few Monster Hunter games localised.

    Translated Famitsu interview with the developers: http://handheldwii.wordpress.com/2008/09/2...6128/#more-4284

    According to it, the game is 33% done! [​IMG]

    Now.. here's a good thing:
    Good to see someone putting some effort on the Wii! They could have just used the PS2 engine but decided to make a new one! Why couldn't the others developers do something like this? :/

    Because they're lazy and want money. It's what it all comes down to in the end.

    Just give us Wifi Connection (that I'd hope will work better than the PS2's pretty bad lobby system...) and I'm buying this on Day 1. I loved going online with the original Monster Hunter. It's a damn shame that they took the Online out of the English versions for the PSP (WTF is up with that!)
