Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, already a tremendous success in Japan, will be getting a Playstation Portable bundle in the UK and a demo worldwide, Sony announced last week.
“Monster Hunter Freedom Unite sold 3 million units in Japan, showing what can happen when you bring a quality product to the Playstation Portable,” David Reeves, president and chief executive officer of Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe, said. “We feel we can attract this sort of audience elsewhere with this game if we can get them to play it ad-hoc.”
So Sony plans to bring a demo of the title to both UMD and for digital distribution sometime before the game hits North America on June 23, he said. He added that Sony will also be releasing a “Monster Hunter bundle” in Europe, but didn’t detail what exactly that would entail or if it would be released elsewhere.
