In their recent financial strategies report, Capcom stated that they plan to use the success of Monster Hunter Frontier Online in Japan to expand the franchise’s user base. In order to facilitate this effort, they’re giving away a free 12-month Xbox Live Gold membership in collaboration with Microsoft to people that buy the game.

 

Since Monster Hunter Frontier requires an online fee to play, Capcom are also including a Hunter’s Life code with the game that will avail you 30 days of free-play. Afterward, a subscription to Monster Hunter Frontier costs 1,400 yen ($15) every 30 days. A subscription to Monster Hunter Tri is less, but the fee is on par with the PC version.

 

Monster Hunter Frontier on the Xbox 360 is scheduled for a June 24th release.

    I still don’t understand if you need BOTH the Gold subscription and the monthly fees to play the game. If so, it doesn’t sound like a very good proposition anyway.

    PS: yeah, Daimyo Hermitaur! Makes me want to go and play MHFU again.

      You need both Xbox Live Gold + Hunter’s Life license to play online.

        Don’t they market Monster Hunter for online play, though. If so, very expensive. $15 is what I’d expect from an MMORPG, not a MORPG. Even with an MMO $15 is too expensive for me.

        That’s weird. Why not just do like FF11, where Silver users could play too. Maybe they are have a deal with MS to try and increase the number of paying users in Japan.
