Capcom Bringing Monster Hunter To Xbox 360

The Monster Hunter franchise hasn't had much luck getting off the ground outside of Japan. Capcom's tried on the PlayStation 2 and PSP without much widespread success and Monster Hunter Tri, designed exclusively for Wii and debuting online multiplayer, will yield another attempt. They're also considering bringing over Monster Hunter Frontier for Xbox 360, according to Andriasang.

"I feel Monster Hunter can definitely succeed overseas," said Capcom's head of R&D and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune to Famitsu. "There's a high possibility that MHF will kickstart that."

Andriasang picked up the comments from the online side of Japan's Famitsu magazine.

It's unclear that Wii owners are particularly interested in online multiplayer. Monster Hunter Tri may pave the path for a new way for American gamers to try Monster Hunter, but Monster Hunter Frontier on Xbox Live, a service with proven online games, may be the golden ticket Capcom's been waiting for.
