An upcoming Nintendo Direct will take place on September 8th, with the focus being Monster Hunter 4. This Nintendo Direct is taking place ahead of the game’s September 14th release date in Japan. Currently no release date has been revealed for the game in the West, but this is something we expect to be addressed next week.

The Nintendo Direct will air at 7am EST, noon UK time. Currently no Wii U version for the game has been announced, but it’s possible we might see this during this Nintendo Direct.

    I don’t see anything yet on the Nintendo homepage, so I’ll ask a stupid question: is this intended for North American audiences as well or will any announcements only affect other markets?

    • We honestly don’t know at this point. The content of the direct is never revealed until it airs, so we only have a basic subject at this point.

      Well considering that Monster hunter 4 hasn’t been confirmed for NA probably not.

      it’s just for Japan. they didn’t announce anything for Europe/USA, but it’s been huge News for the japanese audience..

        Thanks for the update! I was just looking all over for news on this and didn’t see much on the main news sites.

  • Sdudyoy

    That’s good, I was kinda thinking Nintendo was ignoring Monster hunter 4.

  • Madmagican

    Hmm, the fact that Nintendo’s taking the time to make a Direct for MH4 makes me think that we’rea get it outside of Japan 🙂

  • Mseevers95

    I think MH4U will be on wiiu in like 2-3 years

      When the Wii U version will come to Japan, we would have the 3DS version in west, I guess.

    AHA! I heard Nintendo and Capcom were preparing some sort of announcement and it was suspected that it would have something to do with Monster Hunter. I bet they’ll announce MH4 for NA and Europe – they’d be mad not to given the success of 3 Ultimate. Speaking of which it’s possible that they’ll do a Wii U version too but porting a 3DS game to the west AND porting it to console. Maybe the U version will come further down the line.
    And is this confirmed to be a special MH4 direct (like the special W101 & Pokemon X & Y directs) or is this going to be a normal direct featuring MH? I was really hoping they’d have another Wii U direct soon and announce some good shit. Don’t disappoint me N, time is running out to announce those “unannounced games for 2013” you mentioned *frowny face*

      dude it’s a japanese direct…

  • Ony

    I don’t doubt that it will come to west, the real question is WHEN.

  • Mochlum

    Mario, Luigi, and Link confirmed to be in the game.

    • Fred

      the link stuff looks awesome but I can’t take the mario stuff seriously

    • Mochlum

      I don’t think you are supposed to, lol.
