Monster Hunter 2 for Europe

PSP antics in September.

Capcom will be bringing the second game in the outrageously successful Monster Hunter Freedom series to European PSPs in September.

Monster Hunter Freedom 2 will be bigger than the original by up to 50 percent, offering stacks of new content and options, plus new PlayStation Network functionality means you'll also be able to download and add even more life to the game.

The game pits you up against progressively more fierce creatures in wild and varied environments, while letting you customise and advance your characters' skills and abilities as you journey through the game. You can face scores of quests alone, or you can use the handheld's wireless multiplayer to team up with three friends and battle grizzly-nasties together.

The first game sold more than 2.4 million copies in Japan, making it the most successful PSP game ever there, boiling down to about one game for every five handhelds sold. The sequel has since smashed records that the original set, by shifting more than 700,000 games in its opening week.

Monster Hunter Freedom launched last year in Europe to above average reviews, being perhaps slightly difficult, whilst also having camera and control frustrations. You can find our review elsewhere on the site.
