Monster Hunter 4 has been delayed in Japan with the developer saying that more time is necessary to increase the quality of the game.

The game has not been confirmed for North America yet, so technically our release date stays exactly the same: indeterminate. This announcement from Capcom comes along with its expectation that Resident Evil 6's sales will drop soon.

This does not affect the releases of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for 3DS and Wii U. Both of those games should be available March 2013.
