Capcom set August 25 as the release date for Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Ver., but don’t sell your copy of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd just yet. You can import save data from the PSP game into the PlayStation 3 version. Capcom made a significant tweak too. Since the PS3 controller has two analog sticks players can manually move the camera with the right stick. The game supports AdhocParty for multiplayer, but does not have an online mode of its own.


Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Ver. will retail for 4,800 yen ($60). While that may appear high, it’s actually less than Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. When the PSP game launched in December 2010, stores sold it for 5,800 yen ($71). Watch this video to see the PS3 version in action.
