PlayStation CEO confirms Monster Hunter for Vita in 2012

PlayStation France CEO Philippe Cardon has let slip that a Vita Monster Hunter title is on track for 2012.

Speaking about the recent launch in Japan to French outlet Le Point (via) Cardon said: “The games available at launch in Japan do not correspond to the typology of the Japanese public. It lacks a particular game, Monster Hunter, scheduled for the coming months.

“Had it been there from the start in Japan, the story would have been different.”

Which Monster Hunter will show up on the device we don’t know. The hope for many is that it’s Monster Hunter 4, which was announced for 3DS last year, though not¬†necessarily¬†as an exclusive.
