My Nintendo News

monster_hunter_4_cover_artCapcom has explained why Monster Hunter migrated to Nintendo 3DS. The company’s popular action role-playing game series debuted on PlayStation 2. The series then branched out into PlayStation Portable with titles like Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, after which Capcom decided to reach more potential customers by expanding to Nintendo’s 3DS.

“There’s a limit to how long something can be continuously developed on the same hardware,” Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto said in an interview. “The Monster Hunter series started out on the PlayStation 2, then on the PlayStation Portable. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd [which was a huge hit] had reached the end of the line, and in order to meet new expectations, it was required for us to switch platforms.

“Games have ideal release periods, which also determine when their development begins. This resulted in our judgment of seeing the 3DS as the most desirable [platform for Monster Hunter 4].
