Monster Hunter... you either hate the series or love it with a passion. Regardless of how you view the series, the success of Monster Hunter cannot be ignored; especially in Japan. With Monster Hunter Ultimate 3 being released on the 3DS and not the Vita, you can imagine the blow dealt to the Vita. In a move that surprised most, Capcom has announced that they have no current plans to bring Monster Hunter to the PS Vita.

Proof that no plans are made for Monster Hunter

Capcom's Associate Online/Community Specialist Yuri L. Araujo commented that there are “no plans for a PSVita Monster Hunter at the moment.” This news shuts down the 2012 rumors about Monster Hunter being brought over to the PS Vita. Monster Hunter 4 is coming to the Nintendo 3DS as an exclusive. Does this mean Monster Hunter is moving over to the 3DS for good? And what about the Vita? Will sales suffer if Monster Hunter no longer returns?

Time will tell but I'm sure this is stressful news for some.
