Bad News for the PS Vita: No Monster Hunter 4 Anytime SoonS

Remember how popular Monster Hunter was on the PSP in Japan? And how it became a system seller for the Sony hardware? And how the PSP was pretty much the machine Japanese people used to play Monster Hunter? Remember that?

This time around things are different. Monster Hunter 4 is coming to the 3DS, and not Sony's gaming handheld, the PS Vita. But surely Capcom, a company that loves multiplatform games, is bringing MH4 to the PS Vita, right? Eh...

Mantan Web asked Monster Hunter series producer and Capcom president Haruhiro Tsujimoto if Monster Hunter 4 would be coming to the PS Vita. "Now, no. We're only thinking about getting the game in lots of 3DS owners' hands and having it become a hit."

Sorry PS Vita owners! They're not thinking about a port at the moment. That doesn't mean that it won't eventually come to the PS Vita. It might! Who knows? Haruhiro Tsujimoto, that's who.
