LOS ANGELES - Epic quests are at hand as Capcom presents Monster Hunter Freedom for the PSP.

Capcom today showcased Monster Hunter Freedom for the PSP (PlayStation Portable). Building upon Monster Hunter and Monster Hunter G (Japanese release only), which were originally released on the PlayStation 2, Monster Hunter Freedom includes new quests, additional features and content adapted for the PSP system. Adventurers are now free to take their epic battles with them wherever they go, as they hunt monsters in a game world brought to life with some of the best graphics seen in the series. With a multitude of quests, characters, weapons and more, the variety is virtually limitless. Players can partake in enhanced single player campaigns as well as multiplayer quests via the PSP system’s ad hoc mode which allows up to four friends to band together for intense battles. The game has proven to be a phenomenal success in Japan already as the country’s top selling title for the PSP system with shipments of more than 600,000 units. Monster Hunter Freedom is rated “T” for teen audiences by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) and is planned for release across North America on May 23.

In Monster Hunter Freedom, experience the thrilling life of a hunter by taking on a variety of quests and conquering larger than life beasts either alone or with the aid of others. Players start by customizing their own character, choosing the type of hair, face, voice and other various attributes their personalized monster hunter will possess. They can explore a hub village where they can sign up for various quests ranging from retrieving a valuable egg from the nest of an enormous dragon to hunting down powerful creatures and much more. Hunters can scavenge defeated monsters for food, collect bones for weapons and armor, and even use pieces for decorative accessories. In addition, by completing objectives, players receive an array of rewards that allows them to upgrade their arsenal and equipment, readying them for even tougher battles.

Monster Hunter Freedom features for the PSP system includes:

  • Lush environments and detailed monsters are beautifully represented on the PSP system
  • Enhanced Quests – a wide variety of quests have been adjusted to offer more accessible single player experiences as well as robust multiplayer adventures
