Capcom “continuing to evaluate” bringing Monster Hunter 4 west

Thursday, 26th September 2013 13:27 GMT By Dave Owen

Monster Hunter 4 has been tremendously successful in Japan, shifting over 2 million copies since it launched there on September 14. Despite this there is no confirmed western release. Capcom has now acknowledged a fan campaign to being Monster Hunter 4 to western territories, but is still making no promises.

Fans have taken to Facebook and Twitter with the #BRINGMH4TOTHEWEST campaign. Capcom has responded with a message on its Monster Hunter Facebook page.

“Hey hunters! We’ve seen many of you ask for us to #BRINGMH4TOTHEWEST. We’re excited to see the fan base growing and you all showing your passion, keep it coming! We are continuing to evaluate new Monster Hunter titles for the west, and will share any new information with you here on Facebook as soon as we have it.”

It’s a non-committal answer that may upset fans of the series. However, it also suggests that they’re open to the possibility of bringing Monster Hunter 4 west. Perhaps if fans can shout loud enough, they’ll make it happen.

Thanks, ONM.

    Boy I wonder if their continued lack of support for the western release has anything to do with the lack of sales.

    I don’t see it happening, unless Nintendo step in as distributor again like MH3 Ultimate.

    “Nintendo will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the games throughout European territories and Australia, with Capcom remaining as publisher.” Just in case no one knew what i was talking about.

    With all the problems Capcom are having, I doubt they will release it west. They seem to think that increasing the amount of DLC’s in current releases is a more important strategy than releasing games that everyone wants.
