New Monster Hunter for PSP

Little expansion-type affair.

Capcom Japan has soothed the Sony mob by unveiling a new Monster Hunter game for PSP.

Dubbed Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, it is expected to be available in the eastern reaches of the world in March, complete with its own themed PSP Slim & Lite bundle.

From a broken translation it looks as though this new game follows on from Monster Hunter Freedom 2, offering more monsters to tussle with against and more levels to work through.

The announcement comes just weeks after Capcom revealed that Monster Hunter 3 would be Wii exclusive, despite having been originally announced as a PS3 title.

Monster Hunter is an action role-playing game where you have to fight big nasties that want to eat you, improving your skills, equipment and death-dealing capabilities as you go. Its star attraction, though, is the ability to join up with your friends in multiplayer so that you can catch even bigger fish.

It has sold like our bakery's ghost-themed short-bread biscuits over in Japan, and currently sits on the throne as the most successful game on the handheld for the region.
