Monster Hunter G is a Japan-exclusive game for PlayStation 2. It is an expansion to the original Monster Hunter with more quests, weaponry, and Subspecies of its existing monsters. Due to the series lack of popularity overseas, this PS2 title never made it outside of Japan. In 2006, however, Monster Hunter Freedom was released for the PSP, which is based on the content of MHG, albeit with several differences.

  • The default controls are based on those of the Freedom series, with the right analog stick being used for the camera, but the player can switch to a PS2 control layout.
  • Weapon moveset is based on those of 2nd generation games, with additions such as the Greatsword Charge and the Sword and Shield shielding Upswing, the game however does not contain 2nd generation weapons.
