GN Version 4.0
First, we believe that using the Nintendo 3DS will allow us to offer new types of
expressions, game play action and enjoyment for the “Monster Hunter” series, which
has attracted a broader range of user segments. In addition, we selected this platform
with the goal of reaching a diverse spectrum of customer segments, including current
users of the “Monster Hunter” series as well as people who have portable game
consoles. - Capcom statement

This obviously has something to do with their plans for Monster Hunter 4 as well. This is a huge deal in Japan, and hopefully the rest of the world will catch on as well!
