Still no official word on a western release for Monster Hunter 3G, but European retailers are betting it’s on the way,

RevoGamers spotted the action RPG in a Media Mark in Asturias, with pre-orders available for a July launch.

The site also heard from a second, unnamed retailer that Capcom’s phenomenally successful 3DS title would launch in northern summer, with another anonymous source citing a September launch.

A summer release would tie in with Capcom’s localisation pattern of the series so far, but doesn’t mesh with other rumours, which put it down for a third quarter launch. Capcom has not confirmed a localisation.

Monster Hunter 3G is a revised version of the third core entry in the series. Monster Hunter Tri began life on the Wii but has been released on PlayStation 3 and PSP more than once, and has sold multi-millions on every format in Japan.

Monster Hunter 4 is expected to be a timed exclusive for the 3DS thanks to a Nintendo reveal, but a Vita entry is expected at some point.
