Monster Hunter heading to Vita in 2012?

Here’s something that should give those PS Vita sales a bit of a kick; rumors are spreading that a new Monster Hunter game will be coming to the system in 2012.

This is all according to Japanese outlet Nikkei Trendy (via), which cites an ‘industry insider’ in saying that a new game in the series is heading to the platform, though it’s not yet known just which edition will make it over.

Of course, Nintendo announced Monster Hunter 4 was heading to 3DS last year, but never once said it would be exclusive. Perhaps its about time Sony revealed the game would be coming to its handheld too.
