Sony TV spot hints at new Vita hunting game

Sony Japan is teasing a new Vita title in the popular genre of “hard as nails multiplayer RPG”, conveniently shortened to “hunting”. Hunting. Possibly for monsters?

In a TV spot translated by Gematsu, Sony lists Phantasy Star Online 2, Soul Sacrifice, Toukiden, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace and God Eater 2 along with a mysterious sixth entry as hunting games hitting the portable in 2013.

Although this has sparked delighted speculation that Monster Hunter might finally be making its way to the portable as promised so long ago, I have a feeling we might be looking at Panopticon; the game’s first trailer looked a heck of a lot like a multiplayer hunter affair, and Capcom’s been a bit “ha ha, no” on the whole subject.
