Monster Hunter 3G heading to 3DS

Alongside the announcement of the 3DS’ second analog nub peripheral in Famitsu came confirmation of a new(ish) Monster Hunter game for the system, Monster Hunter 3G.

No, not that sort of 3G. Instead, this will be an enhanced port of Wii’s Monster Hunter Tri, similar to how the original Monster Hunter received a G version. Andriasang reports that the game will include changes to the world, refined controls (hence to second nub), local multiplayer, a new monster and touch controls. It will be playable at TGS next week.

As the first game to support the 3DS nub, 3G could usher in a new era for games on the system.
