Capcom just never seizes to amaze their fans. A couple of days ago Capcom has announced that they will release a HD-version of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd this summer in Japan. Apart from looking frickin’ epic in high definition, the game will also support 3D (with glasses and the whole stuff you’d usually need to play one of them fancy 3D stuff) and allow you to not just share your savegame-data between PSP and PS3 but also to join forces with other huters (PSP or PS3) with Ad-Hoc Party!
It’s still unkonwn whether MHP3rd HD will be available on PSN (assuming it’s up again until then) or as a hard-copy – even though I’d kind of prefer the second option. So far there are no plans to release either MHP3rd (PSP) or MHP3rd HD (PS3) outside of Japan. But as most of you probably already know it was the same for Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G and the western hunters still got to hunt down their Nargacugas in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. Be that as it may, it would be exhilarating to get another MH-part on the big screen. While Monster Hunter Tri was (and still is) a great game, it still lacks some stuff to really shine – like HD-graphics, a decent voice-chat-feature (I always use skype) and a bigger amount of gear and monsters to hunt. All of this was however featured in Capcoms Monster Hunter Frontier which unfortunately is only available in Japan.
Anyway, MHP3rd HD is definately something you should look forward to. Capcom will release more information on the title on May 28th. Until then: Check out the announcement-trailer (make sure to watch it in HD) below or visit the official website!
