Capcom: “No plans for Monster Hunter 4 on Vita”

It’s been announced solely as a 3DS game for some time, but Capcom recently confirmed that Monster Hunter 4 will not be hitting the PlayStation Vita any time soon. In an interview translated by Siliconera, Capcom exec Haruhiro Tsujimoto clarified the situation:

“There’s a limit to how long something can be continuously developed on the same hardware,” Tsujimoto says. “The Monster Hunter series started out on the PlayStation 2, then on the PlayStation Portable. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd ,which was a huge hit, had reached the end of the line, and in order to meet new expectations, it was required for us to switch platforms.

“Games have ideal release periods, which also determine when their development begins. This resulted in our judgment of seeing the 3DS as the most desirable platform for Monster Hunter 4.”

It’s not writing out the potential for a Vita version somewhere down the line, but it definitely means we won’t be seeing one soon. It’s a true shame, as Monster Hunter has thrived on the PSP and would be even better on Vita. Perhaps, one day…
