Monster Hunter Frontier G coming to Vita

Thursday, 19th September 2013 04:58 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Online action RPG Monster Hunter Frontier G is making the jump to Vita, Capcom announced at the Tokyo Game Show.

It will be the first entry in the phenomenally popular series to make the jump to Vita, and is due next year. It will share some connectivity with the PS3 version – cross-save and cross-play.

Capcom hasn’t had much else to say on the topic, but has opened a teaser site. According to IGN‘s translation, the Vita and PS3 version will share servers, although a PS3 exclusive server will be available.

The subscription MMO was first released on PC in 2007, and came to Xbox 360 in 2010. In late July, announced for PS3 and Wii U later this year. the various ports do not share servers.

No version of Monster Hunter Frontier has ever been released outside Japan. It’s known variously as Monster Hunter Frontier Online and Monster Hunter Frontier G; the G was added after a major upgrade issues in April 2013.

    Finally, i cannot believe! Even an online-only game, Vita needs Monster Hunter.

    Not surprising. MH would have come to Vita sooner rather than later.
    Although why do I get this feeling that Capcom is doing this to assuage Sony’s ruffled feathers, after releasing MH4 on 3ds? :D

    Again, online MH is an unknown quantity sales wise, lets see if it has as much impact as offline ones. My guess is that it wont, since its already available (or will be available) on 4 other platforms.
    Vita needs an exclusive MH.
