In Japan, games such as Monster Hunter G for the PlayStation 2 and Monster Hunter Portable for the PSP have cemented themselves as one of the region’s most successful franchises.

At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Capcom revealed that there will be a third entry in the series. More interesting, however, is how early gamers in Japan will be able to get their hands on it.

This week the company revealed that Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G will be released for the PSP in Japan in March 2008. The game can be bought as a stand-alone purchase, or as a special edition bundle pack that includes the new PSP-2000 model aka, PSP Slim.

Even though the game is just a mere five-month from its release, not much is known about the sequel. The only thing we have now is that Capcom is promising new levels, monsters and quest which is pretty much what you will expect from a sequel.

They also stated that you will have the ability to continue the game using your save file from the last game, similar to that of the .hack// games on the PlayStation 2.

Stay tuned for more details as they break.
