Monster Hunter Freedom Unite demo arriving on PSN today

A demo of the million-selling Monster Hunter Portable is arriving on the PlayStation Network in the U.S. later today. Shawn Baxter of Capcom shared the news on the PlayStation Blog.

"The official [Monster Hunter Freedom Unite] demo will be live today and loaded with brand new monsters," writes Baxter. "There’s three quests to choose from: Hypnocatrice, Plum Hermitaur, and an Epic Hunting Quest with three monsters to slay. Aside from new monsters, there’s also pre-made characters for each weapon type to choose from. Great Sword, Long Sword, Sword, Dual Blades, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Lance, Gun Lance, Light Bowgun, Heavy Bowgun, and Bow… They’re all there. We’ve crammed as much into the demo as we could."

Since the cooperative experience is a large part of the game, the demo will support four-player ad-hoc co-op gameplay.

Look out for the demo on the PlayStation Network in a few hours.
