Capcom's development teams are thought to be building a PS Vita edition of its once 3DS exclusive project Monster hunter 4, a new report suggests.

Speculation regarding the delay of MH4 has led to one alleged insider claiming that work on a Vita version has pushed the project past its March deadline.

A local games magazine published in Japan wrote: "Whilst originally it was said that the delay of MH4 was due to wanting to make a better quality game and graphics, the real reason appears to be that it may be released on the PS Vita to increase sales." (Translation)

The Monster Hunter series has collectively sold more than 21 million units since it debuted in 2004, and is widely regarded as a 'system seller' for handheld devices.
