I can't understand why this game has not been released in countries other than Japan.
I think the content of this game series is sure to have the potential that can be enjoyed borderless.

I think it is the only fault of this game to demand the experience to the beginner.
However, many kind of monsters and endless hunting-life waits for you if you don't give-up.
And, I'm waiting the day when it could be enjoy hunting with a Monster-Hunters all over the world in the near future.

The sales for this game are incredible, It's week 1 sales are almost higher than Dissidia's total sales so far.

I'm wondering if this game will ever be released in the US/EU though. It's been out a while, almost a whole year and there isn't even a release date or anything mentioned. Looks like this is a Japan only title. It's a shame because this actually looks good. They could easily get another 500k out of this if they released it to the west as well.

ok so is it just me or does it look like this ip might even dethron final fantasy? probably not in america or europe but in japan final fantasy is 2nd. DQ is numero uno, and monster hunter is 3rd.

i think monster hunter 3 tri wil be the determining factor. if it goes to the psp it will be bigger then final fantasy but if not... well the franchise just might burn....

To answer your question, Wii fit will easily exceed the total sales of Wii Sports and Play in Japan, so I'd hand it to Wii Fit.

Montana, if you're talking to me, then yes it sounds hypocritical and I wont go away.

I dont hate the game, since I dont even know what it's like, also the 3rd is coming to Wii so I hope this one does well and popularity goes up.

Epic battle meant for the sales both are having as they are almost tied right now but I see Wii Fit winning by a large difference in the end.

MontanaHatchet posted 01/06/2008, 03:26
Again, this might be hypocritical of me to say, but stay out of the game pages of games you hate or don't understand.

As for the battle, I wouldn't bet just yet. We'll have to see how this game's sales pan out over time.

Onimusha12 : first of all the DS cant handle a MHP game ... thats that . Second of all , even if the DS2 would get this game , sales would probably be lower , because the DS already has a killer RPG : Pokemon . Like it or not , IMO the series is staying on Sonys handheld , and mark my words , because soon after Tri , we will see a new PSP MHP game :D
