PC title Monster Hunter Frontier is coming to the Xbox 360. It was announced at the Xbox Japan event today in Tokyo. But that's not all.
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. After getting the game, users pay ¥1,400 ($15) a month. This includes a one month Xbox LIVE Gold membership. And with yearly Gold memberships costing the equivalent of $58, a free month-by-month membership is a good deal.
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 studio behind the anime Afro Samurai will be providing an original anime. 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.
