After Seth Killian’s departure for SCE Santa Monica Studio earlier this month, Capcom has recruited Yuri Araujo as its new community speciaist. And he’s teasing more Monster Hunter for western audiences.

“I actually joined as a user specifically to inquire (read: complain) about the situation regarding Monster Hunter 2 (dos) Western release back in 2005/06,” said Araujo in his introduction post, “so I know exactly how it feels to be lacking a new MH game for a while… patience is a virtue, right? Eventually it pays off somehow… we’ll have something veeeeery soon ;)”

Japan’s recently seen Monster Hunter Tri G for 3DS, and is currently expecting Monster Hunter 4 in 2013.

    im actually surprised Tri manage to outsell Dragon’s Dogma in it’s first week :P

    guess people really do want a MH game huh capcom??

      Dragons Dogma is soo good though :

      • PrinceHeir

        hell yeah :P

        though im just surprised that even though Dragon’s Dogma is awesome, it still didn’t manage to edge out MH Tri.

        probably new IP though but the numbers were close though

          Yeah DD better get a sequal,it deserves it!!

    It’s probably MonHun 3G though I don’t think we got MonHun Portable 3rd for PSP yet (and probably won’t). I’m still hopeful though. :(

      Why did I get downvoted for wanting more Monster Hunter? T_T

        The PSP is dead, that’s why. We obviously won’t be getting it on that, but the Vita is a possibility. The problem with that, though, is that the Vita is damn expensive; it’d make more sense to buy a home console for the same price (or less).

    Hope it’s Monster Hunter 3rd HD for PS3.

      I think that ship has long sailed. =(

      Most likely scenarios are MH3G, MH4, or both. Though, if it could only be one, I’d hope MH4.

        I was afraid of that. Seems too early for 4 though. 3G is just an expansion of the Wii game isn’t it?

    • whiteferrero

      ahaha. i’m hoping for same. besides, if we’re thinking west market, i’d say console has a better chance. which is why i think this is still pretty valid.

    Didn’t they say that about a new Mega Man “upcoming announcement” months ago?
