Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for PSP will be one of the first titles playable online using the adhocParty application when it launches on December 22.

Ad-Hoc Party mode will allow Monster Hunter Freedom Unite gamers the freedom to embark together on quests without the need to be in close proximity of their fellow hunters. The adhocParty application for PS3 is able to turn local wireless play into online gaming.

"The success of activity such as the Gathering Hall in the UK, a dedicated venue setup to facilitate multiplayer hunting sessions, proves that people are keen to play Monster Hunter Freedom Unite with friends and the new adhocParty service will make it even easier for gamers to team up and play together not just in their own country but throughout Europe," commented Michael Pattison, Senior Director, Marketing, Europe.
