DevelopmentEdit

Monster Hunter: Frontier G was initially announced in September 2012 as a major update to Monster Hunter Frontier Online for the PC and Xbox 360.[6] It was also later announced that it would be released as a standalone game for the PlayStation 3 and Wii U around the end of 2013. Capcom initially stated that it had no plans to bring the Monster Hunter franchise to the PlayStation Vita,[7] but during Tokyo Game Show 2013, they officially announced that Monster Hunter: Frontier G would be released for the PlayStation Vita.[2]

Monster Hunter: Frontier G has a number of promotional outfits available as part of collaborations with other companies. These include characters from Fire Emblem, Sengoku Basara,[8][9] Street Fighter,[10][11][12] Fate/stay night,[13] as well as Hatsune Miku[14][15] and many more.[16]

The theme song for the game is performed by Maaya Sakamoto.[15]

GameplayEdit

The game features online play, with quests playable by up to four players simultaneously. PlayStation Vita players are able to use the same data as the PlayStation 3 version, and are able to connect with other players via WiFi "on the go".[2]

Players are able to switch between worlds; World A and B are accessible by both PS3 and Vita players, however World C is exclusive to PS3 players.[2]
