Starting today, Japanese gamers can download the Monster Hunter 3G demo to their Nintendo 3DS handhelds. Demos aren't a new thing, and they give players a taste of the final product. Monster Hunter 3G does that, too. The taste, however, doesn't last forever.
The demo quest takes around 20 minutes to complete.
According to the Capcom's official page, the Monster Hunter 3G demo, once downloaded, can only be booted up 30 times. After that, it's no longer playable, which seems, pardon my English, shitty.
Demos with expiration dates are not entirely new. Earlier this year, Sonic Generation was available for only 20 days. After that, the demo was yanked and the download copies expired.
Capcom, Sonic's the last thing you should be taking cues from.
Monster Hunter 3G goes on sale Dec. 10 in Japan.
