Nintendo released the first batch of images for Monster Hunter 3G, a 3DS remake of Monster Hunter Tri. Announced during Nintendo’s TGS 2011 press conference, 3G will be the first Monster Hunter game in 3D, but Capcom confirmed that you may not get much hands-on time with the game because it's being planned as a Japan-only release for the time being. This is understandable as the Monster Hunter franchise - while huge in Japan - has never managed to catch on in western markets.

The more exciting news may be that Monster Hunter 4 is also coming to the 3DS. There's no word on if it will be a Nintendo exclusive, but there is a concept trailer featuring the titular hunter, clad in full armor, dodging fireballs, scaling collapsible cliffs, and eventually turning to face his pursuer just as the video cuts to the title.

Aside from a strong concept, double the dragons, and of double the Monster Hunter, both Nintendo and Capcom have remained relatively silent in regards to what MH4 actually is and what changes it will bring to the series. There's still no release date. It will, however, support Nintendo's new circlepad, so that's one more reason to strap a new device to your 3DS.

    Omg CAPCOM pull your head out of your ass and stop being so damn cheap. REBUILD THE DAMN GAME, UPDATE THE GRAPHICS ENGINE, UPDATE THE CONTROLS AND RELEASE THE DAMN THING ON CONSOLES!!!! God this is why I dont respect capcom anymore. They think they're smart. Hey lets keep releasing the same game over and over while adding A FEW new things but while were at it, lets keep the same crap from the first one on ps2 and just update it on weak machines like the wii or crappy handhelds that way we wont have to change much and we'll have a lot less work to do. PEOPLE WILL BUY IT!!!! douches.

    U say they are adding a few new things, have u seen how much they took out from the originals. I bet half of the monster hunter fan base can tell me what a velocidrome is. I mean from mhfu to mh3, they left so much out. I have been a fan of mh since it was on the ps2.
  • lewis-barclay - September 17, 2011 11:43 a.m.

    So why are you still a fan. I had mhfu but got tired of wishing it WASNT on the psp only. I also got tired of the fact that i only had 2 other friends who actually had the game (let alone psps). I just want it on a system. Is that too hard to ask?
  • lewis-barclay - September 17, 2011 11:48 a.m.

    Btw I had the first one on the ps2 and maybe the first or second one on psp. I never bothered with the wii version because they took the cheap way out on that one and I had mhfu. I got rid of my psp because i found myself only using it as an mp3 player. Yea. That means its time to get rid of it.

    Dear Capcom. Stop it. Stop just releasing MH games in Japan. It's the most depressing thing in gaming at the moment. Please, bring this to Europe and the US, please bring portable 3rd to the Vita for Europe and the US and give us Portable 3rd HD on the PS3 (or a new MH game on the consoles) in Europe and the US. It will sell!! I've loved all the games, i know lots of people who want the same as me, surely there's enough demand to at least give us a chance? Come on Capcom, why cut off some of your market, we want this franchise, we want to play it!!!

    I am pretty sure its called monster HUNTER, not monster run away for most of the video like a wuss You have a giant sword, use it!!!! That said I really want to play this
  • Shatgan - September 14, 2011 8:04 p.m.

    The graphics look horrible.

    I don't know about any of you, but I'd play the damned games with they came out stateside. My 3DS needs company, and other than Mario and Tales of the Abyss, it won't get any for some time.
  • Linktoreality - September 14, 2011 5:24 p.m.

    I can't wait for MH:IV- hopefully it makes it states-side!
  • Wryce - September 14, 2011 5:05 p.m.

    Well. More Monster Hunter games that I can't play because they only release them in Japan. They havn't said 4 will be Japan only, but I'm going to assume it will be.
  • oz103 - September 14, 2011 4:58 p.m.

    Im not convinced, mh3 was a dissapointment on the wii compared to mhfu. I like how the areas are more spacious but this climbing business is rubbish, first it was the sea (which was quite cool) and now we are fighting on mountains.
  • bigwill1221 - September 14, 2011 4:46 p.m.

    Why can't they make monster hunters for console.../vita lol And 4 has good concept video... let's hope it turns out like that.
  • GR HollanderCooper - September 14, 2011 4:42 p.m.

    That Monster Hunter 4 video looks so good, and I have no faith whatsoever that the final game will play anything like that.
