PS Vita owners have been waiting and hoping for a Monster Hunter release on the PS Vita seeing as how the PSP saw considerable success with the series. The PS Vita is enjoying some level of success however strong AAA titles are still lacking and Monster Hunter would be a fantastic addition. At the moment, Ragnarok Odyssey is probably the closest thing to MH on the Vita.
Unfortunate news then coming from Associate Online and Community Specialist based at Capcom US, Yuri, that Capcom has no immediate plans to release a Monster Hunter game on Sony’s handheld. The news came via the Capcom Unity forums yesterday. For now, it looks like the series is staying with the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U, and seeing as how the upcoming Monster Hunter 4 is a 3DS exclusive, it doesn’t look like the 3DS will be slowing down anytime soon.
