Sega pushed Shining Hearts back from December 2nd to December 16. The two week delay keeps Shining Hearts away from Monster Hunter Portable 3rd’s maw. Capcom’s game is slated to rack up monster size sales numbers on December 1 in Japan.
The reason for the delay, according to Sega, wasn’t to avoid competing with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. Sega plans to use the extra fourteen days to further improve the quality of Shining Hearts.
