Rumor: Wii’s Monster Hunter offerings require purchase of Hunting Tickets

Capcom’s upcoming Monster Hunter G and Monster Hunter 3 will charge Wii users a fee for online multiplayer in the way of Hunting Tickets, if this post over on NeoGAF is to be believed.

Capcom has apparently released a pricing schedule that goes into effect after players’ 14-day online trial expires. If you want to continue playing, will have to purchase Hunting Tickets.

Three different offerings will be made available lasting 30, 60 and 90 days. Each will run you 800, 1500, and 2000 Wii Points, respectively.

No word yet on when to expect either game, but at least with a real hunting ticket/license you get to keep shooting stuff for an entire year.

We’ll check this with Capcom.
