Monster Hunter Frontier G is getting a western release according to Capcom reports

Image A spinoff game from the original series Monster Hunter Frontier G is a game to only launch in Japan. It was the second Monster Hunter title to be released in Japan for Wii U(previously MH3 Ultimate). Monster Hunter Frontier G is a MMORPG with a monthly subscription fee. No confirmations have officialy been given by the company, but an interview with Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono talked about this in particular for Frontier G:

 

The letter ‘G’ in the title implies it’s compatible with a wide range of platforms, including PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, and PC. We’re also planning to extend this support to PlayStation Vita.

The reason why we have increased our support for so many hardware platforms is because we have our sights set on distributing services for this game in the future outside Japan. We simply can’t release a game as it is, but need to adapt all the necessary services to the unique characteristics of each region. In preparation for that, we’ve broadened our scope and started launching individual titles across multiple hardware platforms

 

Sound like Capcom is hinting a western release for the game. Hopefully, more news will come about the title’s chances of being localized. For now, western MH fans will have to wait until 2015 until Monster Hunter 4 release on the 3DS.
