Capcom has announced Monster Hunter Frontier G for PlayStation Vita.
The series' long-awaited debut on Sony's handheld device comes as a port of the PC online game, and will be released next year alongside the PlayStation 3 and Wii U versions. Like the PC version, the Vita version requires a subscription.
Monster Hunter Frontier launched on PC in Japan in 2007, then on Xbox 360 in 2010. According to Siliconera, while there is cross-play between the PS3 and Vita versions, Vita players can't play in every world in the game. Rather, several PS3 worlds are open to Vita players. There is data transfer between the two PlayStation consoles.
Monster Hunter Frontier G launches in Japan in 2014. A western release is yet to be announced. Debut trailer is below.
