Monster Hunter G, developed and published by Capcom, is an Action-Adventure Fantasy games; released in 2005 ad 2009 respectively, and is the expansion of Monster Hunter (PS2), previously released in 2004. This expansion offered a variety of new content, including some monster, weapon and armor alterations and additions. Among that, new places within the player's home town, for them to visit.

With the low sales of the original Monster Hunter outside of Japan, Monster Hunter G was never slated for an International release, and as such remains a Japan-Only game. With the release of the Monster Hunter Tri demo in 2009, a new version was developed specifically for the Nintendo Wii, which also included a Special Edition MHG Classic (Wii) Controller. Once again, this release was also Japan exclusive.

[edit] New Features

Expanding upon the original Monster Hunter; Monster Hunter G managed to present the player with additional quests (now called G Rank Quests) of varying and increased difficult. These quests also played host to the new Yian Garuga and color variants, most notable; the game's flagship monster Azure Rathalos. The Hunter Rank skill system was also introduced, to govern the restrictions on joining high level quests.

A few new weapons and armor to accompany these newer looking monsters were also added. Most importantly, this game made for the debut of a new weapon class known as the Dual Swords. New Sharpness levels of Blue and White were also added, to further extend on the basic Red, Yellow and Green already existing.

New areas were also added to the Kokoto Village with different advantages for the player, such as the Kokoto Farm for acquiring different items from the village, Training School for fighting monsters in an array of preset armour sets, and a Felyne Kitchen, for hiring Felynes to provide the player with Stat-Boosting abilities.
