Monster Hunter Portable 3rd Slated For December 1st

By Ishaan . August 31, 2010 . 5:56pm


And thus, we learn the battle for the soul of Japan’s monster-hunting community shall pan out as such:


On October 14th, Square Enix will fire the opening salvo with Lord of Arcana, led by none other than General Bahamut. Shortly thereafter, Namco Bandai will retaliate with a volley of their own in the form of God Eater Burst, on October 28th.


Once both companies are done destroying the other’s forces, Capcom will swoop in with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd on December 1st and claim the land and its people as their own (We doubt the people will mind). A fleet of Rathians will then be swiftly dispatched to burn every leftover retail copy of Lord of Arcana and God Eater to the ground.


But wait! Hidden in the shadows, lurking, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike, are SEGA with Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity. Intelligence tell us SEGA are the most unpredictable of all forces and must not be taken lightly.

  • What?! Once their destroying each others forces? lol, nice.

    Hm seems the Japanese will have plenty of choice games to choose, I cant wait to see visuals and photos of them all

  • Code

    Awesome, a date finally! Seems like I’m just starting to warm up to MH again after a break from MH3, so excellent news~! Although seriously there better be crabs, something I so sorely missed from MH3 T_T’

  • excellent, now that’s what make this year :D MHP3 is for challenger, LoA and GoE are for those who simply like flash slicing monster.

  • Scallion

    I’m just glad they brought back bows.
    Now let me get out of here before you guys start arguing over which weapon is better.

    • Draparde

      Bow’s for the win!

  • goronyan

    There’s no way for other games to compete with mhp3 side by side

    Anyways, i really want a bundle of this title

  • Draparde

    I’m wondering if there’s going to be a 3DS version of Monster Hunter. I myself am not all that invested in the series, but I’m sure Nintendo would be more than eager to have a title on their handheld.

    • The DS just isnt cut enough for a monster hunter… i just cant see them together, i dont know why, but something just tells me that is not meant to be, even in the 3DS… but maybe they will do one of those cats monster hunter for the 3DS

      • gatotsu911

        Okay, so we now know that Monster Hunter won’t be on the 3DS, not because it wouldn’t be viable or profitable, but because it’s “not meant to be”. Please, tell us what else your shamanic sixth sense has to say about the future of video games. Take your time, I understand if you need to read the ram’s liver again.

      • Code

        Hmm I think a lot of people share the same sentiments, but I think a lot of that is simply because the series has for the most part been home on the PSP. It’s had outings on PS2, PC, Wii, and 360, but the PSP games I think have been the most prominent of the series. But yeah I really wouldn’t count 3DS out, it has all the necessary buttons and is powerful enough to outright handle the PSP games, so I really wouldn’t be surprised if we see an announcement closer to the 3DS’s launch that a new Monster Hunter installment will appear on the system.

  • karasuKumo

    Yes! I am getting this over LoA and God Eater. Might still get God Eater :D
