Thoughts/Questions:
The Monster Hunter 3 Classic Controller Pro bundle is currently sold-out on Amazon.com, and has been having supply issues before the game even released.
Also, Monster Hunter 3’s debut data, as for “Total Hours” reported, is the highest I have seen for a game’s first debut on the Nintendo Channel.
I think that Red Steel 2 debuting already, is a pretty good sign for the game, considering it doesn’t have any sort of online functionality.
