While Monster Hunter Frontier on other platforms getting updated to Frontier Z for free.
Monster Hunter Frontier, Capcom’s popular Monster Hunter MMORPG, will be coming over to the PlayStation 4 in its latest incarnation as Monster Hunter Frontier Z. Frontier Z is the latest iteration of Capcom’s long running subscription MMORPG based on their monster hunting franchise, and it marks the first appearance of Capcom’s franchise on Sony’s console.
Monster Hunter Frontier is currently available on Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PC- and those versions of the game will also be getting updated to Frontier Z for free on November 9, almost two weeks before the PS4 version launches.
Of course, Monster Hunter Frontier Z is not available in the west, is region locked via a strict IP check, and is also not very good (the game actually uses Monster Hunter generation 2 mechanics, while Monster Hunter is almost done with its fourth generation)- but hey, if you’re a fan, this is probably good news for you regardless.
