One of the reasons that the PSP is still doing so well in the Japanese market is due to Capcom’s Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G. It’s an immensely popular game, selling a whopping 2.4 million units in Japan since it’s release back in March 2008. That particular game never made it to the North American market, but the few that did weren’t very well received (Monster Hunter for PS2 and Monster Hunter Freedom 2 for PSP, for example).
One of the new elements that gamers can expect with Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is the existence of a customizable companion, named Al Felyne. The other newly announced feature comes in the form of a media install, allowing you to save your game directly to your memory stick, giving you faster load times.
Monster Hunter Freemdom Unite should be hitting store shelves in North America and Europe sometime in Spring 2009.
