Capcom’s told MCV it’s to “get serious” about Monster Hunter in Europe.
“What has been lacking in Europe in the past with the Monster Hunter series is definitely the promotion,” said producer Ryozo Tsujimoto.
“The PR and marketing for the last two titles in the series have been very limited, but this time we’re taking things far more seriously in terms of the promotion.”
The series, a huge hit in Japan, hits European PSPs this spring.
Full thing through there.

OXM (via CVG) has a few new details on Capcom’s slightly thawed shooter sequel, and — at least to us — it sounds a bit like Sony’s Shadow of the Colossus with some Monster Hunter thrown in for good measure.
“Lost Planet 2 will put a huge emphasis on your responsibility to your team,” said OXM. “Besides having you mind your own T-ENG reserves when the fighting gets rough, Capcom also plans to incorporate something called a ‘Team Military Power Bar.’ If you happen to die during a mission, you’ll be able to immediately respawn at a data post – but your team’s overall Military Power Bar will take a hit.”
Taking on the game’s “skyscraper-sized” bosses, then, requires players to stand on each others’ shoulders, metaphorically (and, we hope, sometimes literally) speaking.
“My three comrades have scattered to the winds,” said OXM of it first battle with a “three-story high” boss monster. ”
“A buddy has somehow grapple-hooked onto the back of the monster and is now riding it like a giant, living surfboard,” the Xbox-centric magazine added.
And then they pour cold steel into the unfortunate beast’s various glowing “hotspots” until it keels over. Sound familiar?
We’re pretty excited about this one — at least, so long as it lives up to OXM’s description.
