Due out in Japan in November and December, respectively.

Monster Hunter Frontier G is coming to PlayStation 3 and Wii U in Japan on November 20 and December 11, respectively, the latest Weekly Famitsu reveals.

The game will be available as a free download on PlayStation Network and the Nintendo eShop. A retail “Beginner’s Package” will be available for 6,090 yen.

On PlayStation 3 and Wii U, the game will play the same as the already-released Xbox 360 and PC versions, but hosted on different servers. The monthly fee is 1,600 yen per month. One week before the game launches, Capcom will host a free test play period.

Trophy support is under consideration for the PlayStation 3 version. The PlayStation 3 Beginner’s Pack will include the following weapons and armor: Stauros Sword, Rondu Sword, Klaus Hammer, Lund Hammer, Crossbow, Yuenbow, and Metri Series.

GamePad play is supported for the Wii U version. The game is compatible with the Wii U Pro Controller, but not with the Wii Nunchuk. Whether you’re able to do anything with 3DS is still under investigation. The Wii U Beginner’s Pack will include the following weapons and armor: Adonis Lapis, Melgai Desolph, Noctabult, Berona Massa, Genea Regilng, Genea Dore, and Amiro Series.

(Those weapon and armor spellings are likely all wrong. Sorry.)

Thanks, Sinobi.

          Aw shit. You just made my morning. Thanks for that :3

  • MasterSensei

    They only just announced the game and it’s already coming out? How did they manage to hide it for so long?

    Also, is this free to play?

    • Martian Wong

      Did you even read the article?

    • TetsuyaHikari

      It will have a subscription service of 1,600 yen a month much like the 360 version (this comes out to $16.33 according to the yen to dollar converter).

      • veruses

        How is the billing process? Assuming it’s difficult for those living outside of Japan.

        • TetsuyaHikari

          Well, to be fair… I’ve only been on ONE JP billing cycle before and that was for PSO2. To my knowledge though, the Japanese companies have a different format than North America does. For example… Any subscription I had in NA took the money out exactly the day it was scheduled to be taken out on.

          However, on a JP billing cycle… They would take the money out during your first payment, hold onto it for a few days, then put it back into your account. After your first month is over, THEN they would collect the money. It’s really strange! I thought I got a free month or something the first time it happened, haha.

          Then I noticed they took the money out anyway a month or so later. So yeah, it became confusing to keep track of since I had already taken the money out as being spent for say, August, but it was still in my account and wouldn’t be removed until September, lol. So, as far as I know of, the way their credit/debit system works is that it goes through a month long billing cycle and doesn’t actually charge your account until a month later or so (could be 29 days or up to 33 days as well sometimes; I’ve had it fluctuate before).
