Both of those are DS games (I'm pretty sure).

EDIT: Oh, just misread you. Sorry!

Monster Hunter G is the enhanced version of the 1st MH game I believe
Interesting. If it releases in USA I'll be very interested since I've never played a MH game and I'm thinking about buying MH 3 if when it comes out here.

Yes Monster Hunter G ported to Wii, OMG Capcom!!!:lol Another test. They are trying to make Wii a RE and MH machine:lol


Btw this is MH G, an enhanced version of MH where they introduced alternate colours for dragon and amour mixing system. One of the HARDEST MH title to date.

They can release MHG with new controls for players to warm up to MH3.
MHG - Feb
MH3 - June
Just a guess. Most likely there will be a port of MH2 Dos.

I need MH3 news now!!!!!!!!!:D

Creamsugar has a scan that he calls MHG Wii.

But shows the goofy Famitsu Cat mascot, it doesn't show screenshots.

MH3 is coming out in March? I thought it was just a 2009 release with no specific date so far.

There was apparently some scan saying it was for March..but it was for the same exact date and price as RE5, so most likely a mistake.

It's to find out whether or not to do a PSP port sooner or later.

I'm thinking this will release early next year and MH3 will be towards the end of the year.

ok people,time to teach you the history of MH.

Timeline is like this.
PS2:
MH
MHG
MH2
---------
PSP:
MHF(this is MHG port)
MHF2(this is MH2 port with some features excluded from MH2)
MHP2G(this is a Expansion MH2 port with new features that not included in MH2)

------
Wii:
MHG(Port from the PS2 MHG but maybe capcom will add new stuff to it.)
MH3



Black-Wind said:
Is it a upscaled "MH3" like port in some way or is it just a "Wii controls slapped on" port?

Interesting none the less.
They change the monster animations,new monsters,new weapon attacks and new ways of hunting,it's basically brand new.But yeah,it's has wii controls slap on to it,they're not gonna change their winning gameplay formula to fit with Wii controls.

Anw this port got nothing to do with the PSP. Its to create hype for MH3 and I bet the game will have new controls similar to MH3 to warm up the players. Dont be surprise that they squeeze in a MH2 too.

Yeah thinking that there will be MH3 news makes me happy!:D Hope its not the same as the Jump ones.

Developers love putting their last gen port on the Wii to steal some money before putting a proper sequel on it. It can work as a promotion of the upcoming big products and let the new gamers familiarize with the IP, and of course make money. Examples like House of the Dead, Zelda, Pikmin etc... expect Dragon Quest VIII port, new Resident Evil & Dead Rising games coming to the Wii soon.

Or you can see it as the case like Bionic Commando Rearmed to Bionc Commando next gen, or Super Street Fighters HD Remix to Street Fighter IV. Of course in here they put more 'effort'.

I feel like all these Japanese magazines cover is Monster Hunter, DS Games and Final Fantasy...

Would like to hear about more Quantum Theory!

I can't find it, how do the screenshots look if there are any?

So does the game really have the new additions that Defuser posted or did I misread the post?

Not sure, I think he is refering to MH3. I wonder how the online will be like? If Capcom intro pay-to-play for MHG, they are an asshole.
