Monster Hunter 3 comes out in Japan on August 1 in three flavors. Pick the limited edition and you get the highly anticipated game in a treasure box.
Other special goodies include a “Making of Monster Hunter 3 Documentary” and “Monster Hunter 5th Year Anniversary Concert” features on a DVD. Capcom is also preparing a special, unannounced item to go with the package.
Pre-order any version of Monster Hunter 3 and you also get a Monster Hunter head figurine until supplies run out.
The limited edition of Monster Hunter 3 will be sold online in the e-Capcom store. Other versions – a vanilla game and a Classic Controller Pro package will be in stores.
Here’s a list of them:
Standalone Monster Hunter 3 game – 7,340 yen ($73)
Monster Hunter 3 Classic Controller Pro Pack – 8,490 yen ($85)
Monster Hunter 3 Limited Edition – 9,440 yen ($94)
And these are the bonus items with the limited edition.
A domestic release of Monster Hunter 3 is slated for this fiscal year. That means the North American will fall between August 1st (the Japanese release date) and March 31, 2010.
