Capcom UK has poured cold water on reports that the Wii's Monster Hunter Tri will get a PSP version, saying, "This is a rumour."

Hong Kong's Gamewave magazine started the story. Its latest issue carries what looks like a mocked-up Monster Hunter Tri Portable logo on its cover and says the game will be out by the end of the year, according to Siliconera.

Capcom UK spokesman Leo Tan was sceptical, telling Eurogamer: "If Capcom was to announce a new Monster Hunter Portable game, the chances of its first appearance in any magazine other than Famitsu are pretty slim.

"We are not even remotely close to announcing a new Freedom/Portable game in the West, and I've certainly not heard of an imminent announcement in Japan. This is a rumour," said Tan.

"LULLLZZZ!" he added.

A new Monster Hunter on PSP has to be a safe bet, given the stellar sales of the series on the platform to date. But it seems we'll be waiting for a bespoke third game in the handheld series, rather than a port of the third home console game.

Monster Hunter Tri is due for release on Wii in April - watch out for more coverage on Eurogamer soon.
