TGS 2011: Tokyo Game Show Attendees Report that Monster Hunter 3G on 3DS Looks Worse than on Portable 3rd on PSP. Difficulty Lowered. Circle Pad Slippery

The open days of Tokyo Games Show have just ended, and the Japanese internet is already aflame with comments from attendees that aren’t exactly happy about the performance of fan favorite Monster Hunter 3G on the 3DS.

According to blogs like Koutetuoyako and several users on 2chan the graphics are less defined and more hazy than the visuals of the latest PSP counterpart (Monster Hunter Portable 3rd), and the difficulty has been lowered, probably to cater to the generally younger and more casual user base of the Nintendo 3DS.

On top of that, those that got their hands on the playable version on the show floor report that the “monstrous”¬†circle pad attachment is too slippery due to the materials used.
