Rumor: Monster Hunter 4 December release date for Europe

European retailer FNAC has some potentially surprising news for 3DS and Monster Hunter fans. Monster Hunter 4 is scheduled to hit Japanese 3DS systems on September 14th. Normally fans expect a long wait between the Japanese and western releases of Monster Hunter but maybe MH4 will be an exception.

FNAC is listing Monster Hunter 4 for release in Europe during December. It doesn’t give a specific date though. This could be an error, so I’d chalk this one up as just a rumor for now.


MH3U just came out a little while ago, back in March. Nine months between installments seems like it is calling it a little close but not too close. After sinking dozens of hours of my life into MH3U I’m more than happy to welcome Monster Hunter 4 with open arms in the west as soon as possible.
