It was announced on Capcom Unity that Monster Hunter 4 will finally be coming to the west. Much like Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate, the western version will be based on the Japanese Monster Hunter 4 G, meaning that it will have extra content compared to the original game, such as new monsters and weapons.

Monster Hunter 4 contains new mechanics and features compared to older games in the series. One such new addition is the ability to use more vertical ranges of movement, such as climbing, jumping and pole vaulting, allowing for more fluid and dynamic hunting experience. Internet co-op, which was absent in the previous 3DS title, will also be available once again.

Monster Hunter 4 was originally released in Japan on September 14th of last year. The enhanced version of the game is currently in development and will be released sometime in early 2015 for both Japan and the US and Europe exclusively for the 3DS.

What do you all think of this? Are you excited that we’re getting a western release? Let us know in the comments!

    The title is likely to cause people to sush to the comments to rage out and doom capcom for “waiting 2 years” instead of reading the article and seeing the western port is based on a game that’s not out yet

      MH is released in generations. The title is accurate. MH4 is a generation as well as a game. MH4U is part of the MH4 generation.

      You must be new to Monster Hunter. 😛 Fan since the first on the PS2. My reaction was, “Only 2015?!”

      • Mario

        I’m aware of the franchise. I’m just shocked by how long it will take for this game to come out here to America.

        • Schultz38

          Every game in the series takes forever to be localized. It almost feel like it takes longer and longer…

          • Mario

            That makes sense I guess.

      Agreed! If Capcom does what they did for MH3U WIIU and 3DS, I’ll be a very happy hunter. 🙂

  • I actually read an official announcement for it on Miiverse last Sunday (used my 3DS miiverse) and employee of Capcom Europe made the official announcement, I’m super excited, almost at G-rank in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and spent close to 300 hours on it, one more year wait,with X and Bayonetta coming this year for WiiU and tons of other great games for 3DS and likely WiiU the year wait is nothing.

    No problem for me at all, super excited for it *jumps on hype train*

    btw, for Europe and NA it’ll be called Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and releases early 2015 as mentioned in the article, so it’s a 3-5 month wait really with Japanese version releasing September this year 😀

    What happened to the Wii U news portion of Wiiudaily?!

  • Arthur Jarret

    Article made a mistake:
    In Japan it will be released in Q3, 2014 (Fall), not 2015.
    Shame on you Colin!

    Quick translation for a monster hunter game (as it’s planned for Q1 2015 in EU and US).

    Now give me my Frontier localization for Wii U!

    • Oh shoot. I’m sorry. I must not have been paying proper attention.

      Thank you for pointing out my mistake!

      • Arthur Jarret

        No problem – I point out mistakes all the time (it’s very entertaining)

  • The Clockwork Being

    Better put it on Wii U in full HD!

  • Akatosh

    So psyched for this! Been hunting a monster a night now out of the hype. Almost at G*3!
