Monster Hunter G getting ported to the Wii in Japan, waggle not included

Capcom has a hard on for all things Wii it seems, especially in Japan. On top of the Resident Evil ports, Capcom is now bringing Monster Hunter G to the Wii in Japan according to the latest Famitsu. The game was originally on the PlayStation 2 and later ported to the PSP as Monster Hunter Freedom.

Monster Hunter G
will be out Spring 2009 and will be a near identical port with the exception of the new 16:9 widescreen mode and the ability to send items purchased from shops directly to your home. Fans of the series will be happy to learn that there will be no waggle involved, as the game only works with the Classic Controller.

There’s no word on any online fees, but Monster Hunter G should be out before Monster Hunter (tri) is released in 2009. Are any of you hoping Monster Hunter G gets released outside of Japan?
