Monster Hunter Online Confirmed for Western Release

We earlier covered a lot of information about Monster Hunter Online, and the game looked really promising.

While it was originally confirmed for Asian regions considering the game is being developed by Capcom and Tencent, it has now been revealed via the official press release that western release for the game is planned as well.

So what is the game about? It runs on the CryEngine 3 and looks absolutely gorgeous, as you can see from our detailed impressions of the same including the trailer.

The press release states that: “CryEngine 3 is the perfect fit for the series, and will ensure Tencent Games and Capcom are well equipped to make Monster Hunter Online the groundbreaking MMORPG experience fans worldwide are eagerly anticipating.”

And, “Monster Hunter Online will be developed for the international market by Tencent Games and Capcom.”

It would be nice if they reveal the release date for the same because western fans usually don’t get their hands on Monster Hunter easily.

    If anybody finds anything out, please get the word out.
