Monster Hunter 4 Delayed

Posted on December 19, 2012 AT 07:51am

Capcom has delayed the release of Monster Hunter 4 on 3DS in Japan.

The 3DS exclusive was originally supposed to launch March 2013, but has been put back to a more vague summer 2013 release window. The move was made “based on the decision that further quality enhancements are needed in order to meet the expectations and wishes of users.”

“Capcom apologizes to all stakeholders and Monster Hunter fans who are anxiously awaiting this new game for this delay and asks for their understanding as development on this exciting title continues,” the publisher added.
