Monster Hunter G will be pay-to-play in Japan.
This morning, Capcom revealed the pricing structure for the Japan-only title, Monster Hunter G. Players who purchase the title will be given a fourteen-day free trial, after that they will have to spend Wii Points to purchase a subscription. Three subscription options will be available: 800 Wii Points for 30 days, 1500 Wii Points for 60 days, and 2000 Wii Points for 90 days.
Though the American Monster Hunter titles offered free online play, the pay-to-play structure has been present in every version of the popular series in Japan.
While this news may be disheartening for some, it should be noted that Christian Svensson of Capcom USA ruled out any possibility of the title releasing in North America.
