Capcom Has No Plans To Release Monster Hunter On PlayStation Vita

monster_hunter

Yuri, the Associate Online and Community Specialist at Capcom US, has told members of the Capcom Unity forums that the company has no plans to bring the Monster Hunter franchise to the PlayStation Vita. It sounds as though the Monster Hunter series is staying with the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U for the time being. Monster Hunter 4 releases exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS this summer.

“Sorry, we’ve got no plans for a PSVita Monster Hunter at the moment.
As mrk1976 said, however, MH Freedom Unite is up on the PS store.”

      1. If fanboys had some common sense they would actually do what you said, but they wont because those are simply nintendo consoles.

      2. Absolutely right. Avoiding a series you like because it is on a certain company’s systems is just dumb.

      3. I love Halo, I think is the FPS that fit me the best, but not for that I will going out of my way and buy a X Box 360.

        You need more that a single game to get another console.

      4. Well consoles do have other games that you can, get this- that you can try! There are even things called demos that help you see if a game is for you. Don’t be afraid to try something new haha

      5. Oh shit, you are right, apparently every console have more that one single game how the fuck i did not know that before putting my comment? I must look like and idiot right now, isn’t it?

        I don’t care for other X box games, I care for Halo, just like there are PS Vita owners that care for MH3 but don’t give a fuck about any other 3DS game.

        Againg, you need more that a single game to get another console, free demos or not.

      6. I have never agreed with Simply G so much my entire time on this site. Honestly the only thing I disagree with him lately is his icon. Peter Parker>Miles Morales. Yeah I’m that guy.

      7. not everyone has the money to through away just to play one game, plus Monster Hunter should come to a plastation system since it was originally on the playstation, its stupid that Capcom haven’t released a new plastation Monster hunter since Monster hunter Portable 3rd hd ver… that never went over seas all cause the us capcom refused to release it without trophies… it’s ridiculous…. the US Capcom hasn’t made any good calls for a long time..

    1. Why? Monster hunter is good but not that good….

      Plus you have dragons dogma on ps3….

      1. yeah but when MH comes to PS , you say its better than DD, fanboy logic. If it will not come to my system, its bad.

  1. This is good if your a Nintendo fan because that means people have to pick up a Wii U or 3DS to play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

  2. High Command and the Capconians made a deal that this series will be exclusively released in our Empire atleast to the year 2015 if memory serves me right…

    We are trying to secure it for an extended time after that…

  3. >Immensely popular franchise in Japan
    >Exclusive to Nintendo systems
    Cry me a river, Sony fans.

    1. It WAS sony exclusive until recently. And while I love my 3ds (seriously, I’m pouring my money into that thing <3) I wouldn't mind some MH action for my Vita as well given the countless hours I put into Unite and Portable 3rd for the PSP. I personally think Capcom is too damn lazy to make an HD monster hunter to be honest. Portable 3rd "HD" and 3U are just ports in higher resolution =x And MH4's textures look worse than the PSP games… which is concerning.

      1. Mh4 textures dont look worst thats just the video they show of a earlier build because i played mh on psp and 3ds and in 3ds it looks a bit better. I say a bit cause capcom has been using the same texture since mh 1.

      2. NO THEY DO NOT. What are you smoking ? The PSP in General looks awful compared to the 3DS , nuff said. It’s not a matter of opinon or anyone being right or wrong the 3DS has much nicer graphics than the PSP in every way . FACT.

        Monster Hunter Ultimate on 3DS runs at 60FPS (or very close to) is 3D and looks significantly better graphically than the PSP Monster Hunters.

        Now , you would Presume MH4 on 3DS will look Better than Monster Hunter ultimate on 3DS , no ? .

        Tip – don’t watch blown up youtube footage of 3DS games and then judge them , they look a million times better on 3DS.

        I have a PSP (don’t play it all anymore) and it looks like crap compared to 3DS. Metal Gear Peace walker looks not even Half as good as Resi Rev or MGS 3D.

      3. “I have a PSP (don’t play it all anymore) and it looks like crap compared to 3DS.”

        You’re exaggerating. I’m currently playing God of War Ghost of Sparta and Final Fantasy Type-0 on the PSP and both games look visually better than alot of the games on the 3DS.

      4. That depends of the games you´re using to compare, for example… Final Fantasy Type-0 will sure look better than Cooking Mama, but does it look better than RE Revelations ? I´m sure it doesn´t

      5. Capcom isn’t too lazy to make an HD MH game because they are making it for Wii U…which is an HD console… 💋

      6. Either Cap com is too lazy or they wanted to release Monster Hunter ASAP because Wii U needed it real bad. After all remember it is taking for ever for Wii U to get new software.

    2. It’s not exclusive to Nintendo systems. In fact a new Monster Hunter MMO was just announced a week or two ago for PC. Prior to that, it was mainly on Sony systems. It has been on Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation, and Nintendo systems.

      1. Elementary my dear james, mh1 was on ps2 italians logical that capcom though the fan base of the original will fallow also the ds could not run mh.

    1. Nintendrones trying to defend the Failure of a console with no games and current gen hardware, the Wii U in 3…

      1. It shouldn’t even be considered a console. More like a toy little kids use to play Mario and party games when they’re bored.

      2. The Wii U is nothing more than a toy for little children and nostalgic drones like you.

        What you say has no validity. You blindly follow whatever Nintendo do/say. They could come out tomorrow and announce that they are dropping the Wii U and bringing back N64 as their main console and you would agree with the decision.

      3. so what you say has more validity simply because your saying bad things about nintendo? your full of bull shit. you have no right to say that anyone has no validity when you come here and just spew the same bull shit about the wii u. your like a duck who quacks out of his ass. if what he says isnt valid than EVERYTHING you say is invalid. how are you insulting a console you dont own and have probably only played the demo of at a gamestop? (and dont lie like you own it or used to own it cuz you wouldnt own a console you think is shitty right?) you have nothing to build your opinions on accept things other people say or what you assume from news. dont assume cuz it makes an ass out of you and only you.

      4. Shut up bitch lol. You dont know shit. WIIU and its power has been misunderstood by some douches that went on the web and shit and now you know something about its power? LOL That Zelda Demo shit all over Killzone on ps4 LOL.

      5. they cut the power down of the Wii U just for a stupid fisher price tablet LOL

      6. Ness & Neutron……two douchebags making lame jokes. I mean, Fisher Price tablet? Haven’t heard that one before.

        And Ness….nobody needs to defend the Wii U. The system is an investment. It takes time, but eventually we’ll get the games. Starting with Pikmin 3 in August.

      7. HEY LOOK ! ITS THIS RETARD AGAIN !! DANCE FOR US CLOWN ! MAKE US LAUGH :)

      1. “Nintendo isn’t kiddy! Just look at Yoshi’s Island!”

        – Nintendrone

      2. I don’t have Runner 2, idiot. I just said the game was superior on PC.

      3. Then why are you claiming that the pc version is better? You has proved that your mouth is bigger than your brain.

      4. Because you don’t need to own the game to know that it will be better on the PC.

        Anyone with common sense will tell you that.

      5. if you dont have runner 2 then how do you know its superior on pc and suck on wii u? you dont. youve just proved yourself an idiot with nothing to back your statements.

      6. why dont you just leave this site? if you think nintendos kiddy why are you spending so much of your free time on a website about the kiddy company you hate so much? because you live in your basement and fap to ps4 graphics while trolling a nintendo site with your left hand? just shut up. all you say is “OH NINTENDOS SO KIDDY THE WIIK U WILL DIE BLAH BLAH BLAH RIP NINTENDO HAS NO GAMES.” when your just a biast asshole who is proving nothing but how big of one he is. if we “nintendrones” are so god damn annoyin to you, then just leave. no one will miss you. just go and do something else like actualy play games instead of trolling people who like what you dont. its so stupid what you do every day.

      7. Yeah and Xbox is holding on to Banjo-kazooie. I wonder Why? Ignoring that Nintendo has Watch Dogs’ Black ops, Resident Evil(I think RE4 will always be the best), SSB(SSB is hardcore) Call of Duty, AC3, and if GTA 5 came to Wii U, what would you say then?

      8. “We have Lego City Undercover, which is better than GTA V” – Nintendrone

      9. “We have Soul Sacrifice, which is better than Monster Hunter” –
        Sonydrone

      10. I don’t think Lego City is better than GTA. But I think Call of Duty and The God Father on former Nintendo consoles are better than GTA. As a result if GTA doesn’t come to Wii U, in the future some violent game with that same concept will.

      1. Team Fortress 2, Portal, Half-Life 2, Left for Dead 2, Counter-Strike: Global offensive.
        None of those games are pushing the graphics.

        You’ve never even played a game from Valve have you? You should! They’re a better developer than Nintendo EAD.

      2. Oh, wow… you’re finally right about something. Well, guess there’s a first time for everything.

        It is true that Valve doesn’t push the limits of graphical prowess (except for in the case of Portal 2, which, by the way, is a truly beautiful game) so I have no idea where the hell this guy is getting his “facts” from, that Valve is a bunch of graphic loving bitches. I mean… it’s not like they’re Microsoft and Sony fanboys. If you want graphic loving bitches, try talking to most owners of a PS3 or 360. Or PC. Those so called “gamers” are quite pathetic.

      3. Better developer than Nintendo? Doubtful. If that’s the case then Valve is a better developed than Sony and Microsoft too!

    1. Sales of 3DS > Sales of Vita
      # of Games on 3DS > # of Games on Vita
      Cost of Vita > Cost of 3DS
      ….Need I go on, I didn’t think so…

      1. Sales are for scrubs and complaining about price makes you look poor.
        In terms of games all the 3DS has is Mario and a bunch of uninspired JRPGS.

        PSV >>>>>>> N3DS

      2. You better make a tv ad has people seems to not care for the vita not even sony.

      3. HAHAHA SALES ARE FOR SCRUBS? OF COURSE YOU SAY THAT WHEN YOUR PREFERED CONSOLE IS LOSING! yet you brag super hard because the wii u is not doing well in sales. go flip flop somewhere else homeboy.

      4. And let me guess…you’re into the COD-FPS kinda games? And if sales are for scrubs then why are all you trolls so concerned with the Wii U sales? BIASED BITCH!

      5. LMAO So sales for the Vita are irrelevant yet you go OUT OF YOUR WAY to shove crap down people’s throats about the Wii U being a failure? Destructoid’s right, Sony fanboys are the worst and the most hypocritical of the big three.

        And i’m sure that those watered down PS3 ports on your precious little Vita must be saving you quite a lot of money from buying much more quality third party titles on another hanhdled (3DS) that isn’t selling worse than the Dreamcast. THE DREAMCAST.

        Overall though, thanks for revealing were your agenda is in place, i look forward to seeing what else you’d have to say if the Vita were to be discontinued lol.

      6. CAN’T WE JUST FUCKING AGREE THAT BOTH ARE GOOD SYSTEMS?
        Vita has games like Gravity Rush and Soul Sacrifice, but the 3DS has Fire Emblem Awakening and Kid Icarus Uprising
        Most of you fucking Nintendrones probably don’t even have a Vita

      7. Vita has…PS3 ports…and that’s about it. Tales Of Hearts R is the only good game the Vita has IMO.

      8. Yet Neutron brings up Wii U sales everyday. But sales are for scrubs according to him. This just proves he is biased. Sales doesn’t matter when it comes to Sony but not Nintendo according to him.

    2. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA im guessing because sales dont matter untill its the wii u? the wii outsells its competition “sales dont matter” psv is getting fucked “sales dont matter” wii u is selling bad “SALES MATTER NINTENDOS DOOMED!” flip floppin like a damn magikarp

  4. This is a shame. I love both consoles, but I can only dream how vast and incredible it would look on the Vita and tied to PSN services.
    I won’t get the 3DS version as I don’t want the second analogue stick add-on. I suffered with one stick on the PSP. Never again!

    I’ll carry on playing Unite on my Vita.

    1. Your loss. You can controll the camera with a touch screen D-pad (works fine) and centre the camera by tapping L.

      Get the Wiiu version , it’s the definitive Monster Hunter Experience.

      1. No , it’s his loss. He and anyone else with that lame attitude is missing out on the best Monster Hunter Game yet.

        3DS has Touch screen camera controll , L to centre and CPP support.
        Wiiu version is the definitive MH experience.

    2. Why do people always say it is a shame when Nintendo consoles get 3rd party exclusives. Then it is the same people who say Nintendo has no 3rd party exclusives so they suck!… Seriously, people it is a GOOD thing tht MH4 is strictly coming to Nintendo, they need the exclusives! Kisses! 💋

    1. and you have horrible taste too.This layout? and ORANGE as the main color for the header? Really? It is the 70’s all of a sudden and your planning turn the site into a family game show? Well at least it’s not a pic of a half nude anime girl.

      1. Its a templete, he stated that he’s just testing it out. Plus at least the site looks like its from this generation. The previous layout was awful. This was a step in the right direction but theirs still a whole staircase of issues around this site.

  5. I don’t own a vita but because of the amount of titles that aren’t coming the wii U’s way I think us and vita owners can be a little sympathetic. Hard luck to any vita fans who wanted this game.

    1. Of course it will double they sold 2 buildings and a chemical industry lol. Be carefull of the smoke and mirrors.

      1. A personal attack the moment someone doesn’t like what Sony’s done in a conference.
        Typical Sony drone. Fuck off.

    2. First time I’ve watched Sony’s presentation of the PS4.( I have watched a couple vids though on youtube) I was saving the full presentationit until the xbox reveal, but whatever Im bored.

      I laugh everytime I see that controller, it’s just so crappy lol.

      Anyways…

      I don’t get it, What’s the point of this console?
      The interesting stuff was targeted towards the casuals and the kids. Im referring of course to the spectator mode and come play my game for me…etc. Looked cool but useless to a core gamer.
      Facebook and upload a video of me playing a video game..again targeted towards kids and tweens. This entire system screams casual, completely opposite of what I expected that’s for sure.

      Blah, blah, blah specs…

      Knack looked like lego city…
      Killzone looked promising until they started playing it … another shades of grey generic fps that isn’t as impressive graphically as crysis 3 or ME3.
      Drive Club looked great, but not impressive. Watch dogs looked great..
      The other games, well there wasn’t enough to make an informed comment.
      Nintendo has been pissin me off recently but damn “core” Sony fans must be ready to start a riot…

      If MS delivers in may, they will certainly claim the Sony “Core”.

  6. So what if the 3DS has Monster Hunter, Soul Hackers, Fire Emblem, Kid Icarus, Luigi’s Mansion, Super Mario 3D Land, Zelda 3DS, Smash Bros, a new RPG from Monolith Soft, or a new Yoshi’s Island.
    I’ll continue playing my port of Persona.

    1. l”ol , yeh. Fuck the 3DS , i’m replaying Gravity Rush and that watered down Uncharted game for the 6th time” – Sony drone.

  7. when monster hunter was last released in 2009 on the psp which had a larger install base than the vita it didn’t sell alot of units. the psvita is a dead/flop/fail of a system any game made for the vita will not sell.that’s why dev’s are going to 3ds cause that’s where the money is at. r.i.p psvita you saw the same fate as the pspgo and will soon be scraped.

    1. The PSP MH game didn’t sell well because Crapcom can only sell you the same game so many times, you’ll understand what I mean when crapcom repackages MH4 and re-releases it on the 3DS in the future.

      I did not buy MH3 ultimate, and don’t plan to buy MH4, MH Quad, or MH 4 Ultimate.

      1. lol trying to change the subject. thats pretty funny dood. you trolls on this site just continue to say stuff about the wii u when the vita is in the same situation and its 2 years old compaired to the wii us 6 months.

      2. LOL Are your jimmies ruffled because your precious little Vita haz no gamez except for being a downgraded PS3 port machine Sony will discontinue once the PS4 releases? :))

  8. Well, the Vita and the Wii U are in the same boat and have currently not many big game releases to look forward to. But, unlike Sony, Nintendo doesn’t abandon their system. (Sorry I just had to say that :P) (And those fanboy wars and miserable trolling attempts are becoming increasingly annoying, I mean a little ‘diss’ is fine, but come on, there have been at least 40 replies full of this shit and nothing constuctive….)

    1. lol ikr nintendo will fix the wii u situation cuz its only been out for 6 months and vitas been out for 2 and is abandoned. and i like replying to the trolls just to fuck with them and see what they say. i respect trolls who can reply with an intellegent response when face with trolling coming their direction.

  9. Another random argument against gamers and fan boys again…didn’t see that one coming.

  10. What the hell? You can’t even mention another console without starting a flame war. Has the gaming community always been like this?

  11. No surprise when Capcom knows it wont sell too well on the Vita due to the low install base.

  12. holy fucking shit guys, the vita is a fucking pile of shit, you guys are worse than people sticking up for the wii u, i mean at least there is actually some good games coming for it, and the 3ds is the best gaming platform right now period, look at all the mother fucking software, while the wiita best games are wii ports of some of its so called hidden gems, have fun with what is it like 300$ for a shitty wii handheld, seriously the wii u is more worth the price right now even if it is a pile of shit right now. it will still have more games than the vita by this year. seriously i thought some nintendo fanboys were bad on here, but here you are sticking up for your possibly the shittiest pile of wasting your money shit system that kicked you in your balls and stole your money. the vita will probably be a shittier system than the wii have fun with the newest edition of shit and the funny thing is you guys are acting worse than the people who were sticking up for the wii

  13. Well the PSP got Monster Hunter and the DS didn’t so I guess it is only fair that the 3DS gets Monster Hunter this time around and not the PSVita.

  14. why wud peeps not support wiiu its the future of gaming VITA IS OBSOLETE TRASH

    FACTS DESTOY OPINIONS

    3DS WAS NEXT GEN VITA WASNT IF I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THAT YOURS A DOWS SYNDROME…

    1. @king dong

      You’re not very smart are you? It’s obvious you are on the low end of the IQ spectrum. Only a person who has poop for brains will type the garbage you typed. Almost everything you typed is a bunch of fictional nonsense, not facts — but you’re too dumb to realize that. And typing a comment in all capital letters is something only an imbecile will do. Also, your grammar and spelling is atrocious. You need to go back to school kid.

  15. ps4 and ouya have the same controller BOTH ARE FLOPS TOUCH THE MAGIC PANEL KIDDYS

    NO THANKS I HAVE A GAMEPAD AND A WII REMOTE PLUS

    WHAT USE IS A COUGH OUYA CONTROLLER ON PS4 SONY FANS ARE CLOWN

  16. Nintendo and Capcom has a contract. Nintendo gets MH as an exclusive till 2015. After that who knows.

  17. sony fans are ULTRA CASUALS

    fifa/ EA/ games /auto aim fps twin stick controls/brogamer BULLSHIT

  18. Good lord, this site has an extremely shitty community. Seriously, what the hell’s with these moronic SonyDrones and XBots constantly coming here just to bash Nintendo? lol, I love this… they call us little children, yet we’re the ones who are keeping to ourselves and not starting senseless flamewars. Pathetic… just simply pathetic. Don’t you morons have anything better to do with your time?

  19. I feel bad for people who own a Vita.
    The people who jumped into the series early on Sony consoles are being neglected.
    However, Nintendo consoles need system sellers, and Monster Hunter is definitely in that department… I dunno. It sucks either way.

  20. at least sega wont make a console, because they would flat out fail they suck, and cant even make a good game anymore. if anybody is mad on here about it, fucking shut up and deal with it im sick of seeing sega fanboys being babies about everything and is stuck in the genises days. its like shut the fuck up pussies, i didnt even know who sega were untill the gamecube, so stop bitching about it to me about sega, and they fucking suck to cant even make a good sonic game or publish anything good, there a joke and are probably going to join thq and i hope they do because of how pathetic you guys are, shit i thought nintendo was bad now days, but at least they no how to make a good game

  21. *yawn* you fanboys are so repetitive with your comments full of s**t (HURR VITA HAZ NO GAMEZ HAZ ONLY PORTYNGZ FROM PS3!1!!ELEVEEN!!!1!DURRDURR WII U IS A LITTUL TOY FOR KIDDZ VITH PORTINGZ AND MARRIO!1! HURR DURR).

    Give it some time and PSVita will ”recover”, as will ”recover” Wii U (I do not think that Sony and Nintendo are so stupid to put to death these fantastic consoles.). With or without best-selling games.

    – A Sonydrone who also adores Nintendo. (You should broaden your horizons to other consoles nintendo fanboys, open up, do not close yourselves into your Koopa shell.And do not try to do all with the same brush,not all Sonydrones are so) ;)
