Monster Hunter Freedom (Monster Hunter G/Monster Hunter Portable in Japan) is the second release in the Monster Hunter series.
Originally a PS2 Japan-only title, the game is meant to be a sort of "expansion" for the original Japanese Monster Hunter, since the American edition had a number of significant changes from the Japanese version. It was later released in America and Europe for the Playstation Portable. Monster Hunter Freedom presents an online mode which MH doesn't. Some of the expansions included monster color changes and varieties to make them harder or easier. It also featured an online playing experience which was greatly improved upon from the original.
