Capcom’s Monster Hunter is hugely successful in Japan but found huge success when the series came to the PSP in North America. Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto that in order for Monster Hunter to meet new expectations, it requires new platforms and believes that the Nintendo 3DS is the best choice.
“There’s a limit to how long something can be continuously developed on the same hardware,” Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto said in an interview. “The Monster Hunter series started out on the PlayStation 2, then on the PlayStation Portable. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd had reached the end of the line, and in order to meet new expectations, it was required for us to switch platforms.
“Games have ideal release periods, which also determine when their development begins. This resulted in our judgment of seeing the 3DS as the most desirable [platform for Monster Hunter 4].
“We want to have as many people as possible play it on the 3DS, and we are only thinking about making it succeed.”
