If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

There is no...i repeat ...no way this ist coming to the west. Even if Nintendo had to do everything themselves. Obviously they wont talk about a western version before MHG is out though.

I can see it hitting NX(HD)/3DS for the western release next year.
I regret making the comparison, so I've edited it out of my original post. It was just a product of having seen both trailers close together. Hopefully the comparison doesn't upset anyone. AFAIK, Mighty No. 9 hasn't been shown on 3DS yet. I'm excited for both games.
Yeah sorry i didnt wanna come off as upset...tthe comparison just surprised me xD

I wouldn't be surprised if this does come to the NX, depending of course on when the NX releases. But I'm also not prepared to underestimate Capcom's engine on the 3DS.

This is the same company which put out Resident Evil Revelations in 2012.

The game's already been seen in action on a N3DS, so it actually exists on 3DS, guys :p
But the trailers, so far, have showed the game at a much higher resolution than. Which is not so unusual from Capcom: Ace Attorney 6 is similar in this.
 
Wouldn't Pac-man, sonic, ryu, cloud, and bayonetta count as 3rd party Amiibos as well?
They're amiibo of third party characters, but the figures themselves are 1st party, developed and produced by Nintendo. The Shovel Knight amiibo was produced by Yatch Club and is a 3rd party product through and through.

Those pics are really good. Considering all 3DS games tend to look better on screen, this could be one of the better looking titles. As I said, I will first need to jump into the MH world as I have never played one. As it's not a traditional MH game dunno if it will be worth for me.

It feels like Capcom knows the hardware better than Nintendo. It never ceases to amaze me just how far ahead their output is from everything else on the system. Even relatively simple stuff like the recent Ace Attorney titles impress tremendously because of how damn great the models look and move.

Imagine what they can do with the NX Handheld.

So it'll very likely come out next year. Summer at the latest.
It's in a bit of a weird spot, due to the impending NX release and the game itself being a sharp departure from other Monster Hunter titles with the younger audience focus and having a turn-based combat system. The west has yet to receive any spinoffs in the series outside of mobile, but this is a much bigger deal than the Felyne games, so we'll see.

MH GAF help me understand some shit

I thought Stories was what is releasing in the West in a month or so, and I thought it was just Monster Hunter Generations with a new name for the West? Gen already being released in Japan a while ago?

Monster Hunter X (Cross) was released in Japan last November and is being released in the West this July as Monster Hunter Generations.

Monster Hunter Stories is up next in Japan.
