JAPAN: Monster Hunter G to have subscription fees

It has been confirmed that Monster Hunter G will require users to pay an additional fee if they want to play it online – a first for Nintendo’s Wii console.

Siliconera reports that the game, which is not currently scheduled for release outside of Japan, will come with a free 14 day online trial.

However, after that gamers will have to pay either 800 Wii Points for 30 days online play, 1,500 Points for 60 days or 2,000 Points for 90 days.

It’s not the first time that we’ve seen subscription fees for next-gen console MMOs. Both Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XI and and Sega’s Phantasy Star Universe require users to pay additional fees on top of their Xbox Live subscription.
