As a lot of you know, Capcom’s message boards have recently become one of the most active developer/publisher fan communities. Not only is it a great place to hang out and shoot the you-know-what, it’s also very informative and a great source of news at times.
Unfortunately, this time the news is of the bad variety. Capcom’s (here we go) Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development, Christian Svensson clearly ruled out any possibility of a Monster Hunter G release in the U.S. or the awesome themed Classic Controller that comes with it. Says Svensson, “You’ll have to get it from an import shop. Neither MHG or that controller is coming to the US. Sorry. :(“. Sympathy appreciated Sven.
No news is available yet as to whether the controller will also be sold separately in Japan for us import-crazy types to buy at high prices. We’ll keep you updated, so prepare your best Merchant imitation and cross your fingers.
