Monster Hunter gets a trading card game



Capcom has a trading card game that is based on the popular PS2 and even more popular PSP Monster Hunter games. There are four kinds of starter decks that retail for 1890 yen ($16) and eight card booster packs cost 252 yen ($2). There are a total of 171 cards to collect in the first edition of the game. Given the popularity of Monster Hunter in Japan more than a few fans are going to jump on this. While Monster Hunter hasn’t blown up in North America it’s such a large cash cow in Japan that almost makes Monster Hunter worth way more than Captain Commando, maybe as much as their blockbuster franchises like Devil May Cry.
