Nintendo will help Capcom promote Monster Hunter Tri overseas, while Capcom announces a new Wii game in Japan.
With the recent successful release of Monster Hunter Tri in Japan, Capcom is working to repeat this achievement in North America and Europe, regions where the Monster Hunter franchise is less popular. According to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper, Capcom will work with Nintendo in order to market the game overseas. Nintendo brings its considerable experience marketing the continually successful Pokemon franchise to this endeavor.
Capcom has also revealed that the previously announced Sengoku Basara 3 is being developed for Wii. The series, known as Devil Kings in North America, is renowned for its historical hack and slash gameplay. Set during the Japanese Sengoku period, also known as the Warring States Period, the series has many similarities to Koei's Samurai Warriors franchise. Previous titles have featured Oda Nobunaga, the first in a series of conquerors that unified Japan during the Sengoku period, as the title character.
According to Capcom, the series is popular in Japan and has a strong following among female gamers. Currently, there is no other information about the game.
