    Monster Hunter Frontier On Xbox 360

    PC title Monster Hunter Frontier is coming to the Xbox 360. It was announced at the Xbox Japan event today in Tokyo.

    The game first appeared on the PC back in summer 2007.

    A closed beta test will begin this May in Japan. Initially, there will be a PC server and an entirely new server. The goal is to eventually integrate the servers.

    Service will begin this summer. Xbox LIVE Gold members will need to pay ¥1,400 ($15) a month after getting the game.

    Three other titles were shown as well:

    Lost Planet 2
    The game is a multi-platform title and will be coming to the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Gears of War character Marcus and Dom make an appearance. The game's release date is May 20 for Japan and May 18 for both North America and Europe.

    Dead Rising 2
    The game's customized weapon system was shown. Likewise, this is a multi-platform title and will be available on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The game was not dated by Capcom, but designer Keiji Inafune said that its release will be separated from Lost Planet 2. Perhaps fall or winter?

    Super Street Fighter IV
    Another multi-platform title. Features shown include Replay Channel, Endless Battle, Bonus Stage and Team Battle. The character selection screen seems to show three rows of 12 characters. The character Afro Samurai will be available on the Xbox platform. The game will be out on April 28 in Japan for ¥ (US$55). It will be available on April 27 in North America and April 30 in Europe.

    I'm more happy about Dead Rising 2. But I would love a Monster Hunter on 360. I loved the one on PS2. Until they banned me for using an action replay. Fuckers.

    lol... why didn't they at least touch it up?
    I honestly can't see that being localized though, the PC version of Frontier has been around for ages and they didn't try to localize that at all.

    There are barely any 360s in Japan as is, so unless they want to make a good profit, a localization would be in their best interests no? That or they think a quick dirty port would more than break even over there...

    Was asking myself the same thing, this probably easily work on the PS2. Also, I think this is just MS trying to get more 360's to sell in Japan as right now they only sell around 2-4k every week, compared to Wii and PS3's 40k-100k every week.

    So it requires Gold sub plus $15 dollars a month? Awesome.

    Afro Samurai in SSFIV? Capcom doing system exclusive characters like SC2? Is this good or bad? I can't decide.

    I can't see them ever localizing this, which is too bad. I would play it... for a few months. Never did bother jumping through the hoops needed to play Frontier, but always wanted to.
