Before I get too excited about this, I can't help but think back to Tri. Now, in the west the online was free to play, which seems like common sense until finding out that the JP version was 5 bucks a month to play online.

Do we have to worry about that kind of thing for this game? Or is it just a given that it'll be free to play online in the west or in both territories?

It'll be free in NA. It'd be bad PR to make it pay-to-play.

I think the main reason its p2p in japan is because they could get away with it over there.
The Japanese consumer base is waaaaaay more brainwashed then here in the states.

I'm thinking it's subscription based in Japan, simply because there is a vast amount more players over there than there is here. Their servers need much more maintenance to handle the load, so to speak, thus the fee.

..and even if that's not the case, they can get away with it because Japan loves the Hunt. it's one of the most popular series over there. (I wish the same could be said for the rest of the world...)

that's the price they have to pay in order to get totally overwhelmed with monster hunter games.

i'd pay to have all the options that have, they are getting a new Frontier next year! D':
