This weekend's Monster Hunter 4-themed Nintendo Direct could spill some intriguing news. As our friends at Engadget Japan noted, Capcom and Nintendo agreed on some kind of collaboration ahead of the 3DS game's launch on September 14, saying they'll reveal the specifics of that in a "direct" fashion. Well then!
Either way, this weekend's Direct should provide another substantial look at the RPG so eagerly anticipated in Japan, where Siliconera reports pre-orders have surpassed the million mark. But will Monster Hunter 4 come to the west? Well, it seems unlikely we will hear any more on that in this Japan-focused Direct, but that doesn't mean you can't tune in and hope. Make sure you're at this link on Sunday, September 8; the broadcast starts at 8PM Japan Standard Time (4AM PT, 7AM ET, 2PM UK time).
