Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto told IGN at this week's Tokyo Game Show why Monster Hunter 4 is planned as an exclusive for the Nintendo 3DS platform (as opposed to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate being on 3DS and Wii U): “With Monster Hunter 4, it actually just came down to timing - we were developing a new Monster Hunter and the 3DS hardware had just come out, so we figured it was probably the best platform for us to develop it on. You have two screens, with action on top and menus on the bottom, and there's the 3D view as well. It just made sense to put it onto 3DS.”
Monster Hunter 4 will ship in Japan next March.
