MH Tri will be awesome. No friend codes and the classic controller PRO is basically a dualshock controller. Everyone needs to get this game. The test for surviving third parties on the Wii. / Without a doubt, I think this game should be a hit in the U.K
Capcom's latest online action RPG treks to retail alongside Wii Classic Controller Pro, Blood Bowl for PSP.
April trundles on with a relatively light release schedule, as this week sees Capcom's Wii-exclusive Monster Hunter Tri make a splash at retailers and precious little else.
Monster Hunter Tri brings the series' familiar gameplay formula to a new platform, as players are tasked with hunting a variety of monsters across various environs, with Capcom introducing underwater levels for this latest installment. The game supports both Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls, as well as the traditional Classic Controller gamepad and the Classic Controller Pro, which also launches this week. The game will be available on its own for $50 or in a bundle with a black Classic Controller Pro for $60. Those wanting the controller but not the game will be able to buy it a la carte in white and black versions for $20.
If Monster Hunter Tri isn't one's cup of tea, then the week's new release schedule for retail games looks pretty light. The PSP edition of Blood Bowl is expected to make its belated debut in stores, and THQ's DS collection of rhythm-based minigames Beat City also grooves its way onto shelves.
Fortunately, a handful of notable downloadable titles are scheduled to arrive to feed gamers' new release appetites. 2K Play's pie-thieving puzzler The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom will make its downloadable debut on the PC, while Sega's arcade remake After Burner Climax takes off on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this week.
For further details on the week's games, visit GameSpot's New Releases page. The full list of downloadable games on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and Wii Shop Channel will be revealed later in the week. Release dates are based on retailer listings and are subject to change.

Boy was I wrong...the game looks like a cross between WoW and with a hint of Zelda and Dragon Age Origins. I like it! :)
Wait wait wait...I already have Blood Bowl on the PSP (bought it about a year ago) and it still hasn't released? How is that even possible?
MH Tri can't escape its roots! it still needed the ps controller in or way or another .. cough nintendo new controller cough..
Monster Hunter Here I come!!! GOTY entry guaranteed. It's funny how people try to hate on it because it switched systems but when it was on their system, it was a AAA title. HAAA!!!
man monster hunter. I loved the PSP version. Put in a 100 hours. But the fans will still call me a noob, most have 500 hours in, and this game gets tough like half way through single player campaign. So really i was addicted to a game that i didnt like too much. Hopefully 3 is a little easier with some monsters and gives your better variety of things to do and better co-op play.
ill be getting after burner climax. but i woulda got monster hunter if i still owned a wii. but 1 or 2 good games a year aint worth it. maybe when its 99 bucks i might buy another 1
Definitely excited about the Tri bundle...and it'll be interesting to see if Gamespot actually bothers to give this game a decent shot or not for once, seeing as how while everyone else is raving about it, Gamespot is notorious for hating this series...its a good thing that there are plenty of people like me who don't give a crap what they think though, and I'll be seeing many of you online! :D
@enzyme36 : do i pronounce it 'tree' or 'try'... wouldnt a simple 3 work fine in this instance?! that's irony...
@enzyme36 Its pronounced "try". I guess Capcom is calling the 3rd game "tri" to make it seem more unique or easier to remember.
cant wait!!! but the only question i have is: do i pronounce it 'tree' or 'try'... wouldnt a simple 3 work fine in this instance?! lol
Monster Hunter Tri is looking awesome and the bundle with the classic controller pro is the selling point.
DSIware gets three Game & Watch games, again. Virtual Console gets Mega Man 4, not that bad. Not mentioned here, but still releases this week.
I want a classic controller that doesn't have to be tethered to a wii-mote. Stupid that the re-design didn't solve this.
The Classic Controller Pro is my plan to get. It should be better than the first Classic Controller.
Yeah, I really want to get Monster Hunter Tri but not sure if I will, I'm just going to have to see.
Looking forward to P.B. Winterbottom. I suspect it will provide a lot of interesting art and great fun for a mere five bucks. Otherwise, wake me up when Galaxy 2 and Alan Wake come out.
This is very similar to last week: only one major game and a few other no-name games. I reserved the Monster Hunter Tri Classic Controller Bundle and will be picking it up tomorrow. It seems fun but in trying the demo it seems pretty difficult Its going to take me a while to get used to it but a good online experience for the wii is too much for me to pass up so I will stick with the high learning curve. I don't care about anything else coming out this week.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
