If you lived in Japan, this game would need no introduction. The Monster Hunter franchise is easily one of the most popular amongst the Japanese gamers, and although it doesn't fare as well in North America or Europe, RPG fans have definitely begun to gravitate towards it. Here's a great look at the gameplay via Tutorial Episode, and if you've been a long-time fan of the genre, you should be intrigued. This is one of the deepest and most rewarding experiences you can have while on the go, and you shouldn't pass it by. Of course, it will require some time and dedication, but then again, so does every good RPG!
