'Monster Hunter 4' delayed, Capcom lowers financials

By
Monster Hunter 4 has been delayed until next summer, Capcom has announced.

Originally scheduled for a spring launch in Japan, the development team will use the extra time to ensure that the 3DS exclusive meets the "expectations and wishes of users", reports CVG.



Apologising to fans and shareholders, Capcom has since lowered its annual sales projections to account for the delay and weaker-than-expected Resident Evil 6 sales.

Monster Hunter 4 is the follow-up to Monster Hunter Tri G, which was one of the first titles to confirm the use of the 3DS Circle Pad Pro.

Out now in Japan, Monster Hunter Tri G will launch as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate when it releases in Europe next year.

The game is an enhanced port of Monster Hunter Tri on Wii, with a multitude of new monsters, quests and items.

It will be available on both the Wii U and 3DS, and will feature online play for up to four players on Wii U, as well as local cross-platform play between the Wii U and 3DS.

Players will also be able to transfer saved data between the two versions.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will release in North America and Europe from March 2013 on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
