Is Monster Hunter Frontier G Coming to Western Markets?
Nothing has been said about Monster Hunter Frontier G traveling to the western markets until now, but Yoshinori Ono has something in his mind. In an internal interview that took place at Capcom, he has revealed his plans.
When Ono was asked to discuss the game further he stated “The letter “G” in the title implies it’s compatible with a wide range of platforms, including PlayStation3, Wii U, Xbox 360, and PC. We’re also planning to extend this support to PlayStation Vita.”
Moving on he said that they were increasing the support for Monster Hunter Frontier G to so many different platforms because they plan to distribute the game outside Japan in the future.
Just so that you know that this is not just a farfetched plan of Ono, the company has been launching the game separately on multiple platforms for the same reason:
“We simply can’t release a game as it is, but need to adapt all the necessary services to the unique characteristics of each region. In preparation for that, we’ve broadened our scope and started launching individual titles across multiple hardware platforms.”
One might think that he could be referring to other Asian countries when he mentions “outside Japan,” but we don’t think that is the case here. This is because at one point in the same interview he said that they didn’t need to focus on game consoles in other Asian countries since only hardcore gamers used them instead of a larger public.
Monster Hunter Frontier G was released PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U in 2013 while the PS Vita version is expected sometime in 2014.
