Looking for a Felyne life simulation? MonHun Nikki: Poka Poka Airu Mura (Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Felyne Village) is the game for you and it’ll be in stores on August 26.
Capcom set 3,990 yen ($44) as the price, which is way lower than the average PSP game in Japan. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, for example, sold for 6,090 yen ($68) on day one. Perhaps, Capcom is looking at MonHun Nikki as a low price gateway into the Monster Hunter universe? Like the Monster Hunter Freedom series, Monster Hunter Diary supports ad-hoc cooperative play.
Another tactic that’s sure to drum up sales and attention is their partnership with Sanrio. Hello Kitty crossover items are in the game plus Sanrio is making limited edition Hello Kitty plushies for the real world. Every launch copy comes with a product code. Punch it in and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win one of 50 Hello Feylne or Felyne Kitty plushies. 1,000 other entrants receive an original Felyne phone strap.
