Monster Hunter Tri-G has downloadable quests, but not online play

A Capcom support page reveals a disappointing fact about the 3DS's upcoming Monster Hunter Tri-G: unlike the Wii game upon which it's based, Tri-G will not offer online multiplayer. It offers only local wireless multiplayer, like the PSP Monster Hunters (without the option to rig up an Internet play session through a PS3).

Despite that lack of functionality, however, Tri-G does still connect to the internet -- to download special quests. This isn't really a big deal in Japan, where online play is less popular than local, in-person multiplayer. Technically, it's even less of a big deal outside of Japan, since Capcom has yet to announce a release of the game anywhere else.
