Next month, Capcom will be releasing the Nintendo 3DS exclusive Monster Hunter 4 in Japan. The game will be the second game in the Monster Hunter series to be released for a Nintendo platform, after the Wii’s Monster Hunter Tri (and its 3DS and Wii U remake Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate).
Recently, a Monster Hunter 4 event was held in Japan, which saw the surprise appearance of Nintendo Global President Satoru Iwata, who announced that the two companies have put a “symbol of their collaboration” into the game, which will be revealed before the game’s 14th September release date.
Satoru Iwata also commented on the position of the Nintendo 3DS handheld as a whole; stating that the console has sold over 12 million units in Japan and despite the predictions of others, the system is selling well.
Currently, an international release of Monster Hunter 4 has yet to be announced.
