Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Announced for the West

Today Capcom have confirmed that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be making its way to Western shores in early 2015. This reveal was made following the announcement of Monster Hunter 4G at Monster Hunter Festa 13, which will be available in Japan later this year.

Both Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and 4G are an enhanced edition of the Japanese exclusive Monster Hunter 4. So far the games have only been announced for 3DS, and it has also been confirmed that they will support both online and local play. Those who already have Monster Hunter 4 will also be able to transfer their data to the new title.
