VOLCANO WATCH: We've got a casualty! Capcom has regretfully informed fans that Japanese star developers Ryozo Tsujimoto and Kaname Fujioka cannot attend the London Monster Hunter Tri launch event at GAME on Oxford Street this Friday.

The great cloud of ash spewed by Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano means they can't fly here. And it's a bit too far to walk.

Nevertheless, the show must go on, and Capcom will have Tsujimoto-san and Fujioka-san sign Monster Hunter Tri sleeves and post them out to the first 100 people through the doors at the London's Oxford Street GAME store.

The event runs all day from 9am to 9pm, so you'll need to queue early to claim a signed sleeve.

Monster Hunter Tri is the series' first instalment not on PlayStation (PS2 or PSP). It's brilliant, and just what Wii owners needed. Head over to Eurogamer's Monster Hunter Tri review for the full analysis.
