Monster Hunter Tri - US Trailer
Spectacular. I'm speechless. Monster Hunter Tri is a smash hit in Japan, and Capcom and Nintendo are hoping for similar success when the game is released in North America this April. This newly-released US trailer is simply spectacular. I was hoping for something similar to Phantasy Star Online on the Dreamcast, so naturally, I had a big grin on my face while watching the MH3 trailer. An online mulitplayer game where you hunt giant dinosaurs? And there's a split-screen multiplayer mode? And WiiSpeak is enabled? And Nintendo's Classic Controller Pro is included in the box? Good Lord, this game could be huge.
It all depends on how aggressively Capcom and Nintendo push the product. Monster Hunter Tri has "blockbuster" written all over it, but nothing is assured. They'll have to work for it. Cross your fingers and save your penniesm kids.
