In about the span of a few days, we learned that the 3DS will be getting not one, but two Monster Hunter games. That’s a pretty big deal, especially considering how the titles could boost system sales.
Some people were expecting a possible announcement of Monster Hunter 4 for Vita as well this week. That never happened, though.
When asked about why Monster Hunter 4 is heading to 3DS and not Vita, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Hiroshi Kawano said, “I don’t know. You will have to ask Capcom.”
The one thing we should remember is that Capcom has never officially said that Monster Hunter 4 is exclusive to 3DS. It’s also possible that the company is preparing an original Monster Hunter title for Vita.
