Capcom hints at Monster Hunter 3D

Capcom Europe’s main man David Reeves has been speaking to journalists about the future of Capcom, and while doing so hinted at the prospect of a new Monster Hunter game heading to the Nintendo 3DS as well as the PlayStation Vita.

“There are going to be games coming out for both the platforms [3DS & Vita]. And they are both Japanese companies, Nintendo and Sony, and so is Capcom. So the ties are very, very strong. So I think down the road, you could probably see a Monster Hunter iteration somewhere. Probably on both of them.”

The Monster Hunter franchise is one of Capcom’s leading series in Japan, and while not as popular across Europe, has a dedicated fan base who have been craving the announcement of Monster Hunter 3D. Monster Hunter Tri was released on the Wii console last year, although it did not sell as well as anticipated, the game received good reviews and is well worth a try if you find it in your local GAME.

Reeves was also asked about Capcom’s involvement with the Wii U, and while he remarks that there has been no official announcement, that Capcom will be looking to work with the forthcoming console.

“Capcom haven’t announced anything officially on Wii U. I think they have done prototypes. There are only so many things you can get ready for E3 [laughs]. But they might show something at the Tokyo Games Show which is where Wii U is more focused on. I haven’t seen anything personally myself but since the companies are quite close, I am sure they must be looking at something.”
