A Sony official has declared that a Monster Hunter Vita title is set to arrive some time this year, seeming to confirm the game ahead of any official announcement. He said this in response to the Vita's slow Japanese sales, claiming Monster Hunter at launch would've made it more successful.

"The games available at launch in Japan do not correspond to the typology of the Japanese public. It lacks a particular game, Monster Hunter, scheduled for the coming months," said PlayStation France CEO Philippe Cardon. "Had it been there from the start in Japan, the story would have been different."

Monster Hunter is a powerful system seller in Japan, and a handheld gaming device is nothing without its own edition of Capcom's series. Hopefully the Vita picks up when the inevitable game is finally revealed.
