dont you guys think that now nintendo has to postpone the release of pokemons?
No, they want to release Pokemon WW in October and I can't see MH4 affecting that. Both big games but they'll probably be a month apart.

Should be a massive two months for 3DS in Japan. This holiday will be crazy for it.

MH4 next year in US...? Or maybe they wait until they port MH4 to Wii U, then another year.
Did they mention porting it to the Wii U? It's not like the Wii U game would cannibalize sales from the 3DS version, so it's annoying if it's going to be a next year release.

Hopefully Teostra returns too.
They would have to majorly retool teo, though. I can't imagine them leaving teo's flame aura intact, but teo is not particularly challenging without it.

MH and Pokemon a month apart haha

Really wish I could get that 3DS XL, but I know not to hope for anything. We don't even know how long it'll take for MH4 to get outside Japan.

That black one looks so good I want to hug it. If it comes out in EU (ha ha ha not likely) then I may have to give in and finally get a 3DS. Yes that's crazy to get one because of the design but I don't care.
