It's no surprise that Monster Hunter is a hit in Japan, and it shouldn't come as a sucker punch to know that the title has made a pretty penny for Capcom. In fact, Capcom is gloating; the company has posted first quarter financial results (April 1 to June 30) which shows off a 60.1 percent profit i...

Ah, another Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G DLC. This week features a quest to face a trio of monsters: Narugakaruga, Tigarex, and Yian Garuga. The rewards will be items to create a rare sword and shield. Why can't Capcom, or any other company for that matter, ever support a game here in the States...

Besides Rock Band, we don't really know of any other game that updates its downloadable offerings as frequently and regularly as Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G. Every week, Capcom releases a new quest for the insanely popular action RPG. And every week, PSP is the top-selling system in Japan. We're...

There's no doubt that Japan is big on the Monster Hunter games, so it comes as no surprise that Monster Hunter Festa 08 has been drawing in huge crowds all month. The Festa, however, is now over with the finals of the nation-wide tournament having just been wrapped up this past weekend. So what's ...

It's quickly becoming one of those games whose life gets extended further and further thanks to downloadable content, but we're not complaining because Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G deserves it. Their latest downloadable quest is going up tomorrow. It's called "Challenge Quest 05" and allows hunters...

Capcom, leave these people alone! We're pretty certain that Japan's economy must be coming to a screeching halt, as millions of Japanese are turned into mindless zombies who crave not flesh ... but more Monster Hunter Portable. The streets must be empty as everyone stays glued to their PSPs, hunti...

While American gamers are still busy playing Grand Theft Auto IV (we still are!), the Japanese have embraced a wholly different kind of game. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G continues its ridiculous sales drive, and has reached the 2 million milestone, in less than 50 days since the release of the g...

This Monster cannot be contained. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G has reached the magical 2 million shipped point -- this benchmark is a first for the Monster Hunter franchise, and also a first for any PSP game released in Japan. The series' incredible popularity has never translated onto this side of...

Nope, this isn't a new quest in Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G about finding more cat slaves (your minds are getting dirty in the gutter!), also known as Ailu in the game, but a ... bird catching quest. Miniature versions of the fiery bird called Yian Kut-kut will be scattered about the map and you h...

What's scarier than a tidal wave of Monsters? A tidal wave of Monster Hunters, surely. That's exactly what has swept over Japan in the last two weeks as Monster Hunter 2nd G sells a frankly indecent amount of units in the region. After outdoing its older brother Monster Hunter Portable 2 in first w...

This video is a little weird, actually. You get to see "the hunter" popping a tent (an actual tent), nodding towards his cat slave thing, mining a rock from a mountainside, and then get a makeover. While we love watching men have their measurements taken as much as the next gamer, we'd much p...

Hey, did you see the previous two TV spots we posted for Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G? Well, good. Here's two more. This time the humor just flew right over our heads ... by a hundred miles. If only we had better comprehension of Nihongo, then we could probably appreciate these last two TV ...

Saw yesterday's TV spots for Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G? While those clips were entertaining, they had little to reveal about the game itself. Today, however, we have details on some of the new monstrous baddies that you'll need to hunt down. In the picture above, the baboon creature on the far ...

Considering how insanely popular the Monster Hunter brand is in Japan, it's no wonder every accessory manufacturer and their dog is cashing in on the imminent release of Monster Hunter 2nd G next month. Of all the merchandise being released, this has to be our favourite (yes, even including that am...
