  • It would help if you referred to the Japan version as 3G. Missleading title was very missleading.

    • Pokahontas McGuigan

      sloppiness is for fansites and siliconera is not one (i think :P)

    • Last I checked, Siliconera consistently uses English titles where possible after one is confirmed, so I’d be against randomly breaking it.

      Should have specified “in Japan”, though… Unless people thought the title through. A re-release can only happen after the game’s been released once.

      Yeah I sometimes get mislead with the title thinking it’s the western version and the same with previous articles regarding the game. Not much of a problem though as long as they put emphasis that it’s 3G in Japan on the title. That would be much better.

  • Shaddap and take… Less of my money? 

    This is new ^^;

    I was kinda hoping this was saying MH3U would launch physically and digitally at the same time, but this I didn’t read the title all the way. Well, it could still happen, that just wasn’t what this particular article was about.

    I wonder if the best price version will climb up the sales charts like the original? Not to the top of course, but I wonder if it’ll make it to the top 20.

  • Wait, why did you post an image of MH3G if this article is about MH3U?

    • kuroneko0509

      MH3G = MH3U

      •  Oh it is the same game then? My bad. I wasn’t aware.

  • Ferofax

    Confusing title is confusing. MH3G is Japan, MH3U is west. If this is for Japan, then it’s only “appropriate” to use MH3G so that people instantly know it’s for Japan.

    Other than that, I hope for the west that the retail and digital release would be simultaneous. Also, I really really hope we get a demo soon. Like, Christmas. And I hope it’s unlimited, like Theatrhythm was.
