Monster Hunter Freedom 2 Ships

Monster Hunter Freedom 2

Monster Hunter Freedom 2 has been a monster success over in Japan, with sales already well passed the one million unit mark since the game debuted there earlier in the year. Now North American on-the-go gamers can see what all the hubbub is about with Capcom officially shipping the PSP sequel to retailers across the continent today.

Monster Hunter Freedom 2 continues the series’ “hunt-or-be-hunted” adventuring with over 50% more content packed in compared to the original Monster Hunter Freedom, including more than 250 quests, 700 weapons, 1400 armor pieces, 70 different monsters and eight maps, with even more content becoming available to download via the PSP’s infrastructure Wi-Fi mode — local ad hoc is still the only option for the game’s defining four-player co-op functionality, though. Either way, the original was excellent, so I for one can’t wait to get my hands on a copy, hopefully soon…

“Monster Hunter Freedom’s incredible graphics, deep gameplay and compelling multiplayer quests represent the very best that the PSP system has to offer,” said Mark Beaumont, executive vice president, officer and head of Capcom consumer software publishing in the Americas and Europe. “In Japan, we’ve seen the Monster Hunter phenomenon take off based on players coming together for face-to-face multiplayer ‘hunting parties,’ which we will foster with our own community here in North America.”
