Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (previously known as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 4) is a video game published by Ubisoft and due for release in 2011. Excluding expansions, it is the fifth installment in the Ghost Recon series, and was announced to be in development by Ubisoft on January 22, 2009. The game will be a futuristic take on the Ghost Recon series.


The story will take place in Norway, the Middle East, and Asia. The Ghosts will be fighting an ultra-nationalist force that took control of Russia and are invading neighboring countries. The player will take control of a 4-man Ghost squad consisting of a commando (Kozak), a sniper (Pepper), a reconnaissance expert (30k), and an engineer (Bones).
The Wii and PSP versions have different storylines.

The game is a third-person shooter for most of the game, but when entering in cover, the game switches to a first-person camera in order to have a more precise aiming. Also, the cover can be partially destroyed, forcing the players to constantly seek for other hiding spots. A new feature in the series is the "optical camouflage",which allows the Ghosts to become instantly invisible. According to the game designer Rafael Morado, the optical camo technology, however, is still a prototype and there are as many disadvantages as there are advantages and its use will initially be extremely limited. According to writer Gabrielle Shrager, it's also possible to control drones.


Initially, the title of a Ghost Recon release was revealed to be Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Predator by an OFLC release. However in December 2009, "Ghost Recon: Future Soldier" was trademarked by Ubisoft, raising speculation that this could be the name for the upcoming Ghost Recon 4. This was subsequently confirmed by an official announcement. On August 16, 2010, it was announced that a separate PlayStation Portable release would be titled Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Predator.

The release of Future Soldier was initially targeted for the 2009-2010 fiscal year,however Ubisoft later announced that the release date would be pushed back until the 2010-2011 fiscal year to "strengthen" its video game line-up. In May 2010, Ubisoft announced that the release of Future Soldier would be delayed until the "March quarter of 2011". On November 15, 2010, Ubisoft announced that Future Soldier would be delayed once again for a April 2011 – March 2012 release.


Gamespot awarded the Wii version of the game 6.0 out of 10 and said "Ghost Recon's shooting gallery action is shallow and repetitive, but it still manages to provide some entertainment.

The 3rd Birthday (Za Sādo Bāsudei?) is an upcoming video game from Square Enix. The game is being developed for the PlayStation Portable and will mark the third entry in the Parasite Eve series after Parasite Eve 2, which was released in 2000. Very little information about the plot has been released. In April 2010, Yoichi Wada CEO of Square Enix mentioned in an interview that the game would be released in 2010.

The 3rd Birthday is a spin-off of the Parasite Eve series, which is why "Parasite Eve" has been excluded from its title. The title references the third appearance of Aya Brea and the significant changes for the design of the game compared to its predecessors. However, as it has the number "3" in the name and is the third game in the "Parasite Eve" series, fans have been referring to the game as "Parasite Eve 3".


Director Hajime Tabata has described the game as a "true third person shooter," but that it will be different than other games of the genre such as Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII. He noted that the gameplay and plot are intertwined due to an ability called "overdrive" which Aya will use to both examine and fight the game's enemies, the "Twisted." Shown at a trailer at Tokyo Game Show, camera will be over the shoulder, such as in games like Resident Evil 5 and Dead Space.


Late night on Christmas Eve, Aya and the other members of CTI: New York are called into headquarters in response to an outbreak of attacks in Manhattan by creatures called Twisted. These creatures emerged from a mysterious time distortion.

Aya is the main focus of this game. Due to her special powers, she still has the body of a woman in her 20s, although in terms of age she should actually be 35 years old. Motomu Toriyama, the scenario director, feels that it is rare to be able to focus on a woman in her mid 30s in a game and is taking the opportunity to properly depict the thinking and lifestyle of a cool woman.[5] Square Enix announced the title at their 2007 party in Japan for the gaming press. A promotional teaser has also been released which shows Aya in wedding garb.


The game was originally announced as a mobile phone title. However, at the private fan event DKΣ3713 in August 2008, it was announced that The 3rd Birthday was also being developed for the PSP[8] with no mention of the previously-announced mobile phone version. In the Tokyo Game Show presskits, it was confirmed that the game would be exclusive to the PSP.

A teaser trailer was shown at the Tokyo Game Show. The trailer recaps the events of Parasite Eve and Parasite Eve 2 before switching to the events of The 3rd Birthday. Aya is in a street with snow falling. She looks up, concerned, as a vortex opens. The trailer continues with a man offering Aya his hand. She flings it away and the camera focuses on Aya as she shoots him. Whilst this is happening, a remix of the original theme can be heard. The trailer concludes with a creature emerging from the vortex into the street. Aya does battle with the creature and just as it attacks her, the camera pans into her eyes hinting at the possible return of parasite energy. The trailer ends with the logo of The 3rd Birthday and confirms that the game will be exclusive to the PSP.

Another trailer was released, this time the same trailer that was presented in the DKΣ3713 event. After also recapping the events of Parasite Eve and Parasite Eve II, Aya Brea is seen walking down the aisle in an empty church. As she reaches the altar a shadowy figure is seen in the doorway behind her. As she starts to turn, the mystery person opens fire with a rifle. Aya takes out her handgun, and just as she is about to shoot the figure turns and appears to be carrying someone. A wedding ring falls to the floor on the steps nearby. Blood on the floor begins to swallow the ring and once it has, the camera zooms into the ring with the same effect as zooming into Aya's eye in the previous trailer. The lights turn yellow and change into "The 3rd Birthday" logo, again confirming that the 3rd Birthday will be exclusive to the PSP.

Issue 6/5 of Famitsu has an interview of Tetsuya Nomura where he says that the first few stages of the game are already playable.

Konami are pulling out all the stops for the release of MGS: Peace Walker in North America. When the game launches on June 8th there will be not one, but two limited edition bundles featuring special hardware, a UMD copy of the game and other goodies. The first one will be widely available, and features a special edition green PSP.

But for REAL fans of the series, nothing will compare to the 'Big Boss' limited edition bundle, available in fewer numbers at select GameStop locations around Canada and the USA. The real attraction of this offer is the special camouflage colored PSP system, which nicely complements the Central American theme of the game. And hey, if you actually decide to play the game in a forest, you'll be less visible to potential predators. The 4GB memory stick and carrying case don't hurt, either. The whole thing is on sale for $199 USD, but they are expected to be in short supply, so you need to preorder at GameStop if your fanboy heart desires one.

The limited-edition "Big Boss" Pack will include the following:

• Camouflage PSP-3000 system
• MGS: Peace Walker game on UMD
• Voucher for in-game content unlockable early on in the game
• PlayStation Network downloadable movie voucher -- title to be announced
• 4GB Memory Stick PRO Duo
• Premium carrying case

METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER is amongst the first of several premiere PSP titles from both first and third-party publishers coming in 2010. Don't forget -- make sure you mark your calendars for June 8, when the stand alone METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER game on UMD, METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER PSP Entertainment Pack and "Big Boss" Pack will each be available.


Shepherd's Crossing PSP

Developer: Success
Release Date: April 20, 2010
MSRP: $29.99
Also on: PS2

The success of Natsume's Harvest Moon series is, at first glance, maybe a little confounding. You have to actually play the games to get the appeal, because "creating your own little farm from scratch" tends to conjure up images of virtual chores. In truth, the games are appealing because they're actually quite a bit of fun and, like most strategy games, have you juggling multiple things at once. Japanese developer Success is apparently trying to ride the wave of Harvest Moon by crafting its own take on farming, but in our first few hours with the game it seems like it might not be channeling the right parts of the games to make this an enjoyable little time sink.

Read Article here:

About the game:

You've traveled the world and seen all there is to see, but a charming mountain town and a girl named Claire have finally convinced you to settle down. An abandoned farmhouse becomes your new home, and the fields your new responsibility. Plant crops in the spring and reap the rewards before winter comes and covers the land in snow. Trade crops for animals, raise and breed them, and use their unique abilities to hunt wild animals and defend your farm.

In Shepherd's Crossing for the PSP, it's up to you to run your own farm and make it thrive. The game is all about the sheep. In fact, the main source of income is based on high-quality wool products. Turn your small, empty farm into a successful sheep colony in order to complete the game's main story, but the game doesn't end there. After the story you can continue to build, customize and grow your farm!

Gameplay Video:

Snake and friends will be able to go Monster Hunting in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker when the PSP game hits.

Kotaku Japan was on hand at last night's official press conference for the game and shot this video showing a team of snakes taking on all sorts of Capcom monsters.

These hunting sections, which appear to be separate from the narrative of the main sneak and kill game, can be played solo or cooperatively. The video shows Monster Hunter mainstay Felyne prancing about at some point in the game and it appears you can do other Monster Hunter-esque things like cook your kills and even use some of the weapons from the Capcom game.

Hideo Kojima has said that it makes sense for Snake to be hunting dinosaurs because the game takes place in Costa Rica. And everyone knows that Costa Rica is jam-packed with ancient monsters, just go watch Jurassic Park.

In the past Solid Snake has appeared in Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Sony's Ape Escape characters appeared in Metal Gear Solid 3, and Capcom and Konami have collaborated before with Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django, which can be linked up with a Mega Man Battle Network 5 on the Game Boy Advance. It's cross-over fever!


Good News to all Monster Hunter Addicts "like me" Horray!!!

MHP3 is due to release this year, along with the Felyne Diary spin off (August).
Just by watching the video:
- Felyne fighters have remained along with new features currently available to the ChaCha (MH3), boomerang weapon and dancing. Also you can bring 2 fighters during a quest.
- New attack for Gunlance (flip + reload + slash) which can be linked with a shelling attack.
- Two new maps along with some MH3 ones added.
- Naruga Kuruga and Tigrex are the only classic monsters shown, possibility of others not returning including MH3 ones.

- A better communication system is added (probably making use of a keyboard/PS3/microphone on PSP).

- No underwater combat, it is to remain exclusive to MH3.
- The game is situated in Yukumo, an oriental village.
- This is a start from scratch, much like MH3 no savefile continuation from MHP2G many new features will be added.
- Felyne fighter armor/weapon can be customised/upgraded adding more depth and attention for them.
- There will be less content (quest wise, which should reflect upon the amount of armors/weapons created) than MHP2G (currently holding the content title, if you exclude Frontier).

- Info on 3 new monster species

---Gavua: Ostrich type?
---Aoashira: Armadillo type?

-12 different kinds of weapons
---Great Sword
---Long Sword
---Hunting Horn/Flute

Final Fantasy Agito XIII for PSP

Posted by angelvhin On 10:01 AM 0 comments

Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Square Enix
Designer: Hajime Tabata (director)
Kousei Itou (producer)
Artist: Tetsuya Nomura (character design)
Yusuke Naora (art director)
Composer: Takeharu Ishimoto
Series Final Fantasy series
Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII
Platform: PlayStation Portable
Release date: TBA
Genre: Console role-playing game
Mode: Single-player, multiplayer
Media: UMD, Download

Final Fantasy Agito XIII is a video game for the PlayStation Portable which, alongside Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII, makes up the compilation Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy XIII so far. The game is not a sidestory to Final Fantasy XIII; it is part of one story which will have shared themes and myths around which all the Final Fantasy XIII games will be centered.Agito is Latin for "to put in motion" (more accurately, "I put in motion"). While a release outside of Japan has not been announced, Hajime Tabata is trying to appeal to the North American players in his direction of the game.


The battle system will be similar to that of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, but will make use of the ATB system and allow control of multiple characters.

A compass has also been revealed in recent screenshots. Characters have been shown traversing dungeons of mechanical foes and soldiers. Playable characters alongside the nameless lead (nicknamed "Card-Kun") are shown in the screenshots with rather high HP and low MP costs to their magic spells in their command list. Like in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, names of foes are stated under "Target" on the upper-left-hand side of the screen. A recent article by Weekly Famitsu[5] stated that each of the twelve students will have their own summon that can be swapped out and controlled by the player. The summons can also level up; so far, the only confirmed summon is Odin, used by the de facto main character.


The game's plot is thought to be "massive" and is still being finalized as of June 2009.The game is set in a magic school named Peristerium School of Magic, and will gradually expand to the larger world outside of the school. It is described as an online RPG, but not "massively multiplayer".It's been recently revealed that Orience is the name of the world, and the antagonizing military country is called Milites. A peace treaty is supposed to be in effect with the four countries, but Cid of Milites has sent his l'Cie soldiers to war with the neighboring countries. Other areas have been revealed recently called Rubrum, Anaze, and Kogai.

From the IGN Impressions of the trailer that was debuted at Square Enix's closed door party, DKΣ3713, it was revealed that there is a militaristic nation that, due to the machination and rallies of their leader, began conquering all of its neighboring nations. The nation went unimpeded until they came across a lone island kingdom isolated from the rest of the continent that was apparently being protected by a giant crystal and is also said to worship a god named Suzaku. However, for reasons unknown, the crystal shatters, seemingly leaving the nation vulnerable to be attacked. The kingdom's fear is realized when a cloaked woman, wielding a "whip sword" along with other blades, appears with a massive army in formation behind her. The trailer continues with random bits of fighting in CG along with gameplay, and ends with the main character sticking a flag in the ground, which is most likely that of the kingdom nation, rallying his allies. It is also confirmed that the nation's military has been destroyed.

Leaf Valley is in trouble. The heartless Funland corporation is going to bulldoze the town and replace it with an amusement park unless its citizens can find a way to stop them. Players will need to grow crops, raise animals, and mine ores and gems to help save Leaf Valley and their family farm. Along the way, they'll earn money and develop their skills in interactive part-time jobs, and build their relationships with the villagers in order to gain their trust and help. With an open-ended story with multiple endings, how players choose to save the town is up to them.


Jack travels to Sugar Village to pick up his grandfather's stuff after hearing that he has passed away. He learns that the village will be turned into a leisure park. Jack decides to take over his grandfather’s farm and work hard to turn the village around.

Upon arriving at the farm, Jack will nominate to pick up his grandfather's belongings. Jack encounters three "Harvest sprites" and the Harvest Goddess, who ask him to stay on the farm and help them.

The protagonist must once again save the homeland by finding a way to save the village from being torn down to build into an amusement park called "Leisure Land". By choosing different paths, you can find up to 16 ways to save the homeland.


Unlike Save the Homeland, Hero of Leaf Valley allows you to marry any girl although it follows the same line as Save the Homeland. This is the list of girls you can marry.

Gwen - A young woman with a big heart who loves the village very much. She is very distant with outsiders and can even have a harsh tongue at times. She loves animals -- especially horses. She is named Sarah in PAL regions.

Laila - Lyla is the owner of a flower shop, she's always happy and smiling. She might be a bit older and more mature than she seems. Lyla loves to dream her days away in her shop and is a very romantic young woman. She dreams of falling in love. A screenshot can be viewed below.

Alice - She a confirmed character that is new to Harvest Moon. Alice is the manager of the company that plans to convert Sugar Village into "Leisure Land", she will occasionally visit the village to cause trouble and hamper progress.

Dia - The spoiled girl who lives at the villa with Gina and Martha. She was left in Martha's care when her parents divorced, and this seems to have left a bit of an emotional scar on her. It will take some patience getting her to open up and realize the mistakes she made, but it will definitely be worth it.

Gina - Gina works in the village alongside Martha. She is a sweet, subservient young woman who had grown up beside Dia as her chambermaid. She always has others on her mind and never seems to stop giving it her all. Gina harbors a secret passion and a wonderful skill for tailor work.

Katie - This young lady loves sweets. She is a precocious 16 year old who wants to grow up before her time. She works with her grandfather in his cafe in the daytime, but is forbidden from entering the building at night when it is transformed into a bar. Sometimes she may be a little too sensitive about her less than wonderful cooking.

Aurelia - Aurelia is a Sister who came to Sugar Valley with Chester. She is always supporting him and follows him wherever he goes. She is a strong-willed young woman with a bit of a straightforward nature, but she displays grace when playing the Ocarina.

Harvest Goddess - The great protector of the land. She has magical powers and gives blessing to the land with nature and beauty.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (Kingudamu Hātsu Bāsu bai Surīpu) is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation Portable. The game was released in Japan on January 9, 2010, planned for a Summer 2010 release in the US. Square has planned releases in other territories. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep was also released with a limited edition PSP-3000 as a bundle in Japan featuring designs from the Kingdom Hearts series on its back. Nomura has referred to the game as "Episode 0" saying that the game is on the same scale and plays as big an importance as the console titles in the series, Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II.

The game is a prequel to the first Kingdom Hearts game for the PlayStation 2, taking place ten years before the original, and features many previously unseen characters and unexplained plot elements from the original Kingdom Hearts series. The game centers on the journeys of Terra, Aqua, and Ventus, characters briefly featured in Kingdom Hearts II, in their quest to locate the missing Master Xehanort. The game also utilizes an overhauled battle system different from previous games in the series with new elements such as the Command Board, Command System and Dimensional-Links added in.


Birth by Sleep is a prequel to the first Kingdom Hearts game, taking place ten years prior. Like the other games in the series, the player progresses through a collection of various worlds, based on various locales from the Disney animated features canon: Dwarf Woodlands from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; Enchanted Dominion from Sleeping Beauty; Castle of Dreams from Cinderella; Olympus Coliseum from Hercules; Deep Space from Lilo & Stitch; Neverland from Peter Pan (featuring for the first time most of the main island setting new to the series rather than Captain Hook's pirate ship and Big Ben from the first game and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days); and Mysterious Tower from Fantasia. The game also features various new worlds specially created for the series by Square Enix such as the Land of Departure and Radiant Garden. Disney Town, which is the town that surrounds the castle grounds of Disney Castle, serves as the game's minigame world. Worlds such as Destiny Islands and Castle Oblivion also appear in the form of cutscenes, while the 100 Acre Wood from the Winnie the Pooh franchise, which had appeared in most other games of the series, only appears as a Command Board in Birth by Sleep.

Long ago, Norvia, the Goddess of Creation, descended from the heavens. Using the Holy Vessel, a divine chalice charged with all Force (the spiritual energy in the universe), she created life and the Divinities, shepherds of existence. For a while, all was good. After a time, Delgaia, the God of Destruction, brought about a great calamity known as the Gods' Remorse. He intended to return all Force to the Holy Vessel, returning Berge to the void. The Divinities sacrificed themselves to defeat Delgaia, delivering Berge from doom and sealing the God of Destruction away deep within the earth.

As Berge lay in ruin, a result of its bitter war, Norvia made a covenant. She would restore Berge to its former beauty on one condition. An Hour of Judgment would eventually come to pass, and in it, the world would have to decide its ultimate path: creation or destruction.

Genre: Action
Publisher: Ubisoft
Online Play:
Local Play:

Release Date: May 11, 2010
MSRP: $39.99
Also on: PS3, X360, Wii, DS

Visiting his brother's kingdom following his adventure in Azad, the Prince finds the royal palace under siege from a mighty army bent on its destruction. When the decision is made to use the ancient power of the Sand in a desperate gamble to save the kingdom from total annihilation, the Prince will embark on an epic adventure in which he will learn to bear the mantle of true leadership, and discover that great power often comes with a great cost.

Other Versions:

The DS, PSP and Wii versions are developed separately and will feature different gameplay than the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions.

In the Wii version of the game, the Prince will wield three new powers: a Sand Ring, serving as a wall grip to ascend areas where there are no ledges or grips; a pillar to get higher; and a protection sphere to avoid falling or getting caught in traps. These three magical sand powers will serve both in navigation sequences, during combat and also to solve puzzles. The source of these three new powers is a magical phial discovered by the prince.Later in the game, the challenges will necessitate the player to combine all of the three powers.With time, the powers will be found to have more than one specific usage; according to Nintendo Power, the Sand Ring will eventually serve to activate some special power crystals.

Combat in the Wii version makes use of the Wii's motion sensing capabilities. A flick of the Wii Remote will swing the Prince's sword, and the same gesture with the Nunchuk will make him throw a punch. The rest of his combat moves (like rolling, blocking, etc.) will simply use buttons, as the developers didn't want to make the game exhausting by overusing motion controls. According to Nintendo Power, the swordplay does feel similar to the previous installments. From time to time, certain foes will have a blue aura surrounding them, meaning he is the "leader" of the group of enemies; bringing the player to the use of some strategy: if you kill the leader, the other enemies will flee instantly. Using a Sand Ring on an enemy will freeze him for a brief period of time.

The Wii version will also feature a cooperative multplayer and will include the Super NES version of the original Prince of Persia.

The basis for the game's plot is similar to the original: the protagonist, Harry Mason, searches for his daughter, Cheryl, in the mysterious town of Silent Hill following her disappearance after a car accident that left him unconscious. The rest of the story, except for some character names, is radically different.

The game begins in a therapist's office, where the player can interact from a first-person perspective. After the player fills out a questionnaire, the action cuts to the town of Silent Hill. Throughout the game, the action cuts back to this session, where the doctor listens to the events unfold. Harry's journey is also occasionally interrupted when the town transforms into an icy nightmare in which he is forced to run from bizarre monsters, forcing him to flee from one location to the next.

Harry Mason wakes up to a car crash to find his daughter has gone missing. He explores the seemingly empty town, as a snow storm has forced most residents to take refuge in their homes. After talking to police officer Cybil Bennett (or a bartender, depending on the player's choices), Harry remembers that he lives in Silent Hill on Levin Street, only several blocks away. Harry reaches his home, only to find another family living there. Cybil picks him up and offers to take him to the station and figure things out, but she has to stop after her car windshield becomes covered with snow. Cybil leaves to see where they are. Harry doesn't wait for her and escapes into the woods, finding his way to Midwich, the local high school.

At the school, Harry meets Michelle Valdez, a prom queen attending a reunion, and learns that his daughter was a student here, although considerably older than he remembers and at a different address. Harry follows Michelle to the nightclub where she works. She offers to drive Harry to Cheryl's address, but when Harry briefly steps away he comes back to find Michelle is gone. Instead, Harry meets Dahlia, a wayward girl who acts as if she has been with Harry the whole time and claims to have a romantic history with him. Scared and disoriented, he accepts the ride, but another shift to the nightmare causes the car to crash. Harry wakes up in a hospital with Cybil, but the nightmare world quickly takes hold again and Harry is forced to flee. Returning to the normal world, he meets Lisa Garland, a nurse. He takes her back to her apartment, and helps her with her headache, but she dies shortly thereafter. Cybil shows up and tries to arrest Harry. Once again, the ice world takes hold, and Harry navigates the frozen town, emerging near Cheryl's address. Inside, he finds an older version of Dahlia, who shows Harry her wedding ring and claims they are married. She tells Harry that Cheryl is at the lighthouse, before the world freezes over yet again. Harry tries to leave the apartment, only to find a seemingly endless maze that ends in Cheryl's bedroom, where Michelle appears and offers to drive him to the lighthouse.

Namco Announces God Eater PSP

Posted by angelvhin On 12:58 PM 0 comments

The Monster Hunter series has been the top selling franchise on Sony's PSP by a wide margin. This success (and the profits that it generated for Capcom) has led other publishers like Koei and Sega to try their hand at capturing some of that same magical formula with their own 4-player community-building games. It does not come as a surprise, therefore, to hear that Namco Bandai would like some its own multiplayer co-op action on the portable platform. Via Famitsu magazine, the company has announced a brand new IP exclusively for the PSP called God Eater. The game will be arriving in Japan this fall, with a North American release sure to follow sometime afterwards.

According to the Japanese announcement, God Eater is set in a dystopian future. The game centers around the struggle between the Aragami, divine creatures that have suddenly decided to attack the planet, and the God Eaters charged with taking them down. Wait, this is already starting to sound very familiar.

You can build a party of up to four characters offline, or you can connect with three friends for an all-human questing party. Your characters use a special kind of weaponry called "deus ex machina," to suck the life essences out of the aragami and absorb it. This allows the player to power up their weapons in a variety of ways. Just like Monster Hunter, there are different classes of weapons, but these can be swapped more easily in God Eater. Namco Bandai has also said that it expects God Eater to be much faster-paced than Monster Hunter. Clearly, these two games will be compared with much scrutiny by hordes of Monster Hunter fans who might be eager to try something new.
