Gamers hoping Monster Hunter 4 makes its way to the PlayStation Vita are out of luck, at least for now.
"No [plans] for now," Tsujimoto said. "We want to have as many people as possible play it on the 3DS, and we are only thinking about making it succeed."
Monster Hunter 4 launches exclusively for 3DS on September 14 in Japan. No North American release date has been announced. The game is expected to sell 2.8 million units in Japan alone by March 2014.
