Monster Hunter Frontier G could be headed outside of Japan

Monster Hunter Frontier G, a massively multiplayer online version of Capcom's action game series, could be headed to regions outside of Japan, according to a Q&A with executive producer Yoshinori Ono on Capcom's official Japanese site.

According to Ono, that's one of the reasons that Capcom brought the game, which was first released for Windows PC in 2007, to multiple platforms, including PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Capcom also announced last year that Monster Hunter Frontier G is in development for PlayStation Vita in Japan.

"The reason why we have increased our support for so many hardware platforms is because we have our sights set on distributing services for this game in the future outside Japan," Ono said. "We simply can't release a game as it is, but need to adapt all the necessary services to the unique characteristics of each region. In preparation for that, we've broadened our scope and started launching individual titles across multiple hardware platforms."

Ono did not elaborate on what regions the game could head to or when that might happen.

Last year, Capcom teamed up with publisher Tencent to develop Monster Hunter Online, and a beta launched last year in Taiwan. The companies plan to bring it to the "international market."
