Monster Hunter Frontier Online October Update Adds Ankylosaurus Like Monster

By Spencer . September 28, 2012 . 3:53pm

Capcom is working on Monster Hunter Frontier Online Forward 5. This update scheduled for release on October 17 has a desert area and a new monster called Odibatras. This shelled creature splits the earth open and emerges from the sand to terrorize hunters.


Monster Hunter Frontier Online will also have more powerful weapons and Wind Series armor designed to hunt G class monsters scheduled to appear next year. Unlike other Monster Hunter games this one is online only and originally designed for PCs. Capcom brought Monster Hunter Frontier Online to Xbox 360, but only released it in Japan.
