It looks like Capcom is poised to have a hit on Wii. Alongside a delay for Dark Void, the company announced it will be shipping more than one million copies of Monster Hunter Tri, designed from the ground up for Nintendo's platform, for its August 1st launch in Japan. Capcom says this will be the first third-party Wii release to hit this milestone.
It's not all bright news for the series, though. While the PSP releases continue to sell well in Japan, the recent attempt to popularize Monster Hunter in the US with Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, didn't catch on. The game "performed weakly," said Capcom.
Did you pick up Monster Hunter Freedom Unite? I tried a few hours in co-op and easily saw the appeal, but the massive learning curve prevented me from going back.
