News leaking out of this week’s Famitsu reveals that Monster Hunter Frontier G is in development for the Wii U and PlayStation 3. The PS3 version will release first on November 20, followed by Wii U on December 11.
Monster Hunter Frontier G may ring a bell for some. The game originally hit Japanese Xbox 360 and PC systems earlier this year.
The new versions’ content is identical to the previous release. PS3 and Wii U will both be receiving a “Beginner’s Pack” (packaged with armor and weapons), priced at 6,090 yen with a monthly fee of 1,400 yen. There will also be a free downloadable version. A free trial period will also be made available to players one week prior to the game’s official launch.
On Wii U, Frontier G will allow for display switching to the GamePad. It won’t be compatible with the nunchuck, but the Pro Controller will be supported. Capcom has yet to confirm if there will be any 3DS functionality. Likewise, it isn’t clear if the PS3 version will support trophies.
