A few months ago, it was confirmed that a new Tales of mothership game was in the works and that it would be heading to the Wii. The first trailer was expected to be released soon, but it looks as though it has been leaked. Take a look at it below!

Earlier this week, a rumor popped up that Monster Hunter 3 would release on other systems. A few days afterward, the official game website was update and dismissed the rumor. Now a Capcom statement has basically put the final dagger into any rumors that the game could release on other systems.

“Ok, seriously, a Chinese magazine scan? Believe what ever you would like guys.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

That pretty much speaks for itself right there! We can’t say for sure what will happen in the future, but for now, it looks as though Capcom has no intentions to release Monster Hunter 3 on any other system other than the Wii.
