Unfortunately, North American fans will have to wait a little longer to find out when (and if) we are going to get our hands on Sony and Capcom’s HD-remake of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, but we at least have a bit of a window. Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD
will launch in Japan on August 25, 2011.
The game is currently available for preorder through Capcom of Japan’s e-Stor
e. According to Capcom’s listing, the game will be available in both standard and “Extended” editions. The extended edition includes a limited edition Blu-tooth Monster Hunter headset, which will also be available for purchase separately in limited quantities. I, for one, am really hoping that this remake makes its way stateside as I absolutely loved Monster Hunter Tri.
