Interesting, sounds like a good way to get at least some of the MH fanbase over to the Wii for MH3. Look's like Capcom is putting some effort into this, which is surprising to me for some reason :lol.

Edit: Also that is a cool bundle, any word on if it's coming to NA?

The shocking lack of media 4 months before the game is released kinda scares me.

edit:
this is MHG, not MH3

Yeah, i was going to say "Look's like Capcom is putting a lot of effort into this" but I'm not sure how the hype/advertise side of things is going so I downgraded it to "some effort". Still a surprising level of effort for a 3rd party Wii game.

I'm not sure if this is already known or not, but the fact they're releasing an updated classic controller is music to my ears. Not just because the thing looks amazing, but because I doubt they'd release one unless the game used it. And I doubt the game would use it unless they are omitting waggle.....

There is some chance. If we start pestering Capcom NOW maybe we too can get it.
Okay. Commence pestering. I want full-on nuclear war level pestering is what I'm saying. I want this shit. Especially the controller and demo.

EDIT: Where do I go to pester these people anyway?? :lol

oh god i hope this means mh3 will have classic controller support..... :D
Maybe someone will correct me, but I recall hearing in an interview (on GameTrailers maybe?) that MH3 would support both the classic controller and the wiimote-nunchuck configuration.

I'm just wondering if by admitting that the game uses the classic controller they are also saying there are no motion controls.

Probably wont be any unnecessary overly used motion. IR more than likely and very small usage of motion, but honestly do we need more than that? Its about time that devs realize that just because its there doesn't mean you need to completely freaking over do it. Gives me LOTS of confidence in this game.
