Capcom has announced a later than expected Monster Hunter 4 release date of September 14 in Japan, the game having previously been delayed from a March 2013 launch to this summer "based on the decision that further quality enhancements are needed in order to meet the expectations and wishes of users".
Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto confirmed the new release date for the 3DS exclusive during a Nintendo Direct broadcast today, during which footage of the title was shown and two Monster Hunter 4 hardware bundles were revealed. Capcom has yet to confirm plans to release the game in the west, although perhaps we’ll get some news on that front at E3 next month.
