Great News for the Vita

So the Playstation Vita has not been performing very well to be honest. Which is sad because it has the power and features to be a killer platform. The problem is that there is no software supporting the platform. Vita has been on a climb since it has become the Indie platform of choice lately with major releases such as Hotline Miami.

This is all about to change though, in TGS, Capcom announced that Monster Hunter Frontier G will be heading to the Vita. This is major news, with the return of the series back to Sony platforms, you will see the Vita sales sky rocket in Japan. Monster Hunter has to be one of the most popular series to hit Japan! I am more than excited about this news as Monster Hunter, for the PS2, was my all time favorite game.

Now the sad news, there is no plan for Western Release yet, I assume they are awaiting for the reception of the game. I am hoping that they do decide to bring thegame over here. Apparently, Monster Hunter G Frontier is an MMO of sorts set in the Monster Hunter universe, which definitely sounds appealing to me. Now, with the dual analog sticks of the Vita, Monster Hunter will finally feel like it is intended to on a handheld system!

Here is to hoping for a western release of this hallmark series.

What are your thoughts about the news of Monster Hunter coming to the Vita?
