Monster Hunter Freedom Sequel Announced

Get ready PSP-owning Monster Hunter fans, Capcom has just announced that Monster Hunter Freedom 2 (newly released in Japan as Monster Hunter Portable 2nd) is heading to North America for a release this September. With this sequel, Capcom is promising to deliver 50% more content than what the original had to offer, including over 350 quests, 8 new maps, 70 different monsters, 700 weapons 1400 armor items. In terms of modes, MHF2 will offer Ad Hoc multiplayer for up to four players, new Infrastructure support for downloadable content, and a 1-2 player “treasure hunters” timed co-op mode.

This all sounds great, especially considering how cool the first game was, but my only question is where in the hell is full Infrastructure support for actual online multiplayer? Ad Hoc is fine, but the Monster Hunter games are all about multiplayer, so it’s disappointing that we’re still not getting online play with the PSP titles. Oh well, the game should still be awesome, and judging by these first few screenshots it’ll look great too.
