Free Online Play, Release Date, Wii-Speak Support, Playable Demo, and Exclusive Pre-order Incentives Give Consumers Even More Reason to Join the Monster Hunter Phenomenon

SAN FRANCISCO, CA— February 24, 2010 — Capcom® Entertainment, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced big plans for its upcoming game Monster Hunter™ Tri at the Nintendo Media Summit in San Francisco. Capcom revealed that the Wii™ exclusive would be shipping to retail stores on April 20, 2010 along with the launch of the new Classic Controller Pro™. Limited quantities of Monster Hunter Tri will be bundled in with the new controller for a suggested retail price of $59.99. The standalone game will be released with a suggested retail price of $49.99. Along with the exciting news of the ship date, Capcom and Nintendo revealed its online plans for the North American fans by offering online play at no cost. Gamers also now have options for how they want to communicate as they develop tactics and strategies for hunting majestic monsters, either by text based chat or Wii Speak™, Nintendo’s hands free microphone.

Additionally, a playable demo and new pre-order incentive will be available exclusively via a partnership with GameStop locations across North America. Nintendo fans can get a taste of the action on March 8th when the demo becomes available at GameStop stores nationwide. For a limited time only, those consumers who place a pre-order for the game will receive an exclusive collectible Monster Hunter™ Tri Points Card valued at 500 Points ($5.00) and available at time of pick-up, good towards the purchase of any content in the Wii Shop or Nintendo DSi™ Shop Channels.

Even though Super Mario Galaxy’s gameplay is fantastic, one of the title’s main highlights is the use of orchestrated music. When Galaxy 2 was revealed, the trailer featured a MIDI composition and led many to believe that the actual game would have similar tunes. Nintendo has confirmed otherwise, though. One final nugget confirmed by Nintendo at their media summit today is that the final, shipped version of Galaxy 2 will indeed contain orchestrated music.
