A Capcom forum member posed the question to Capcom about whether or not there would be a localized Monster Hunter title released this year. Here is what Capcom’s Yuri L. Araujo had to say in response:
…your request is simple enough: Yes, it’s been confirmed that we are getting a game. “What it is” and “when we’ll know more” are the parts I can’t share.
It sure looks like the West will be getting a Monster Hunter title this year, but we just don’t know which one. Could this be Monster Hunter Tri G, Monster Hunter 4, or a Monster Hunter Wii U title? I guess we have to wait for an announcement.
