Monster Hunter 2 is the sequel of Monster Hunter. It was only released in Japan because the Monster Hunter series had only a small cult following elsewhere in the world, while being huge in Japan. New features include day and night changes, seasons, new monsters and new weapon types. Monster Hunter 2 did not see a North American release. However, Monster Hunter Freedom 2, a game based on its content, was able to make it to American shores.
