Monster Hunter Freedom has been a strong seller for the Sony PlayStation Portable in Japan, having moved almost 600,000 copies since its release earlier this year. It was also the recipient of the "Excellence Award" at the 2005 Famitsu Awards. Monster Hunter Portable, as it's known in Japan, will be getting a couple of new downloadable quests this month according to the game's official Web site.
Gamers can download the new content via the PSP's wireless infrastructure mode starting August 30 at 2 p.m. The first quest, titled Kut Ku Festival, requires the player to bag two or more Yian Kut Ku within a given time limit. The other quest, Tenchi Kyouran, also sets a time limit within which the player must take down a Rathian and Rathalos. These quests join 16 others that have been made available to users in Japan since the game launched.
