 Nintendo Distributing Monster Hunter Tri In Europe And Australia

Capcom announced today that it has partnered with Nintendo to distribute the publisher's highly anticipated Monster Hunter Tri for Nintendo Wii in Europe and Australia. The deal gives Nintendo control over sales, marketing  and distribution of the title, while Capcom stays on as publisher.

"Nintendo has identified Monster Hunter Tri as a key title for the Wii platform in 2010," said Capcom Europe senior director of marketing, Michael Pattison, in a statement. "We are really excited about partnering with Nintendo to further develop this franchise."

Managing director of marketing and PR for Nintendo of Europe, Laurent Fischer, also commented on the deal, saying, "Monster Hunter has a huge and passionate following in Japan and we are looking forward to introducing the Monster Hunter Tri to a whole new audience in Europe as the series makes its first appearance on the Wii."

Capcom also revealed that European and Australian monster hunting fans can expect the game in April. Japanese gamers have been devouring the game since this past August with well over a million copies sold thus far. Sadly, there is still no word of when in 2010 Tri will be landing stateside.
