Important Note: The list is not exhaustive since it’s taken from the Japanese version of the game. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is bound to have some changes like less blood which is too bad since it the amount of blood that shows up per hit indicates the amount of damage that you deal 🙁
In any case, Freedom Unite is bound to open doors to non-CFWed PSPs to Monster Hunter. Are you part of the Monster Hunter Mania? I am.Tags: Monster Hunter, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Playstation Portable
