Capcom has teased gamers and has provided hints that Monster Hunter 3 would be brought outside of Japan, but has never said anything concrete…Until now. The company confirmed in their recent financial results that the game will be localized for overseas territories. Monster Hunter 3 is expected to release in FY 2009, which means that the game could be scheduled anytime between April 2009 to April 2010.

In other Capcom news, there are plans to “introduce versions of major game series for the extremely popular Wii” and that nine titles will launch within this fiscal year. Thus far, we know about Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, Spyborgs, Monster Hunter 3, Resident Evil Archives, Resident Evil Zero Archives, and Monster Hunter G…So that leaves some room for speculation as to what other secrets Capcom has in store.
