Nintendo appears to be confident in the sales potential of Capcom's Monster Hunter Tri
. The company will take on sales, marketing, and distribution of the Wii action RPG in Europe and Australia, as it did for Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles
and Zack and Wiki
. Despite Capcom's announcement that the title would be delayed
, Monster Hunter Tri
will be released in April in the West -- just
out of its original Q1 window.
"Nintendo has identified Monster Hunter Tri as a key title for the Wii platform in 2010," Capcom Europe senior director of marketing Michael Pattison said. " We are really excited about partnering with Nintendo to further develop this franchise." Perhaps it could be developed further by releasing the Classic Controller Pro
along with it. Just an option.
