Monster Hunter Tri Gets April Release Date-1.052010-01-06 02:48:04dascrow

Monster Hunter Tri has to be one of the most eagerly anticipated Wii games of 2010, so there was understandably much gnashing of teeth and general wailing when the game’s projected released date slipped from early 2010 to who knew when! Today has come to the rescue of monster hunting fanatics everywhere by revealing that Capcom and Nintendo will be bringing the game to PAL territories in April 2010, and presumably also to North American around the same time, if not sooner.

“The popularity of the Monster Hunter franchise in Japan is undeniable and the Day 1 shipment number indicates that the release of Monster Hunter Tri on Wii will be another major hit for the series,” said Laurent Fischer, managing director, marketing & PR, Nintendo of Europe. We are therefore really excited that Capcom is bringing this title to Europe so the Wii audience here can also experience the thrill of the hunt.”
