Monster Hunter Tri is hitting North America soon, but Japan is already asking for what is next. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is exactly what is next in Japan.
The new title is set in a village called Yukumo village which has a heavy Japanese influence. This village is the main base for Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. Inside of towns there will be a new sauna as well. Outside of towns there will be new types of fields and Monsters for players to tackle.
In Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G you could have a Felyne partner, but this time around players can have two feline partners. Not only will players have double the cats, but will be able to fully customize the gear they wear.
Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is set for late 2010 in Japan exclusively on the PlayStation Portable. We can probably expect to see the title some time during 2011.
