Next month a port of Monster Hunter G is coming to Wii. Capcom hinted the online mode would have an online fee and it does. Users can pay 800 Wii Points ($8) for a 30 day subscription, 1,500 Wii Points ($15) for a 60 days, or 2,000 Wii Points ($20) for 90 days. While the fee is cheaper than your standard MMO it’s feels unnecessary since all other Wii games have free online play. If you’re uncertain about Capcom’s service you can use the 14 day free trial that comes with the game.
I would probably wait a good fifteen days after Monster Hunter G comes out to start my trial. That way I can see how many people stick to the online mode after it costs money to use. The bundled Monster Hunter Tri demo may be the reason people rush to pick up Monster Hunter G in the first place.
Capcom won’t release Monster Hunter G over here so these fees are only for Japan and daring importers.
