We've managed to capture some brand new screens of Capcom's forthcoming action game for PSP, Monster Hunter Freedom.
Part action, part RPG, Monster Hunter Freedom builds on the world established in the recent PS2 game with an enhanced single-player game to compensate for the fact that you can't creature-kill online.
This doesn't mean that you're not able to hunt in packs, though, as localised WiFi four-player missions are still possible - you just need to find four Monster Hunter-playing mates with PSPs.
The game places you in a fantastical land where huge hulking monsters roam, with you're challenge to venture out from the safety of a nearby village, then hunt down and defeat these huge beasts. The spoils of the hunt can then be used to upgrade weaponry and armour so your hunter is better equipped to go after larger and more dangerous creatures.
Capcom has created some majestic beasts that still impress with their presence and scale when encountered on PSP. In fact, the PSP version looks better than the full console version as the smaller screen hides some of the more prickly edges.
Other PSP exclusive features include a two-player cooperative treasure hunting game, an enhanced village hub and a Felyne Kitchen where you have several cats to prepare skill-enhancing food for you.
Monster Hunter Freedom has already seen huge success in Japan, with over 400,000 copies being sold, so it will be interesting to see how UK gamers take to it when it comes out here next month.
