Capcom: No Monster Hunter on Nintendo Wii till 2009

Capcom have revealed that any hopes for Monster Hunter this year on Wii are out the window.

The once Playstation 3 title won't be hitting retail according to a report on Live Wii. Capcom's Christian Svensson was recently asked for a release date, but responded "I'm not saying when...but 2008 it isn't" as a game "of this magnitude requires years of development."

Certainly good to see much care and attention for a potential winner on Wii.

Smilie (sorry no comment besides this)



Well at least we know they're not shitting on this game and just shoving waggle in.

From my prospective this is good news! I know we will have to wait a year longer but im sure the game will be better... and not just a MH with wii-mote action!!!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

This game will sell so much when it comes out in Japan. I have yet to play a Monster Hunter game myself.

That\'s my thinking also. The more time in development the better. I am very happy that it wont come this year, the Wii needs a all out adventure game that oozes quality and Capcom will be able to to that well with time on their hands.

Hopefully the Wii will be a bit more established online by then.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

I think thought this game would've been the start of pay 'n' play. guess not then. Anyway, great news, the more time that goes into this the better it'll be.

An online RPG needs voice chat...keyboard support works too...but fixed comments like in smash brothers sucks a bit.

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++
