'Monster Hunter 4 goes G' whatever that means.

At Monster Hunter Festa '13 Final Round, Capcom announced Monster Hunter 4G for 3DS, the expanded version of Monster Hunter 4, which sold more than 3 million copies in Japan since it was released in September 2013, and released a trailer. Monster Hunter 4G is scheduled to come out in fall 2014. Players of Monster Hunter 4 will be able to transfer most of their save data to the new game. 

Capcom also released a video online where Series Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto announced Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for 3DS, the equivalent of 4G, for gamers in North America and Europe. Just like Monster Hunter 4, 4G/Ultimate will feature vertical and lateral movement and support free online multiplayer. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be available in early 2015. There was no word on whether a Wii U version of Monster Hunter 4G/Ultimate may be forthcoming.

So excited. Give me MonHun or give me death.

My understanding is that the G refers to the Hunter Ranking which means access to harder quests and better materials.

Anyway, it's nice to finally have a US release date/time frame even if it's forever away.

I'm glad it is the expansion version because I don't think I would want to buy multiple versions just for a bit of added content like I did with Tri/Ultamate.

This series is like the Call of Duty of Japan!

Kinda weird how there isn't a Wii U version of this (that we know about). I always figured they tacked on the word "Ultimate" to MH3U since it started with a U.

I think Monster Hunter games actively avoid following a logical naming convention!

Awesome news! I’m ok that we didn’t get 4 now. Hope they release it on Wii U too…

Best Buy Canada is selling used copies of MH 3 Wii U for $5 - need to get a store and buy a couple copies for friends to try and get them into the series! The chance of finding stock is unlikely though...
