Article from IGN.com talking about how Nintendo will help Capcom with stateside sales.

August 12, 2009 - Wii is the champion of the console gaming world, and it appears that Capcom wants in on the action. A report 
from Japan's Nihon Keizai Shimbun financial newspaper today states that the third party giant will be strengthening its relationship 
with Nintendo in an effort to reach the Wii's 52 million strong user base. 

For Western gamers, the relationship will show itself with Monster Hunter 3. Capcom will be working with Nintendo for the 
overseas release of the game, which hit Japan last week and sold over 500,000 units in its first two days. The paper states 
that Nintendo will make use of its experience in selling Pokemon to promote the Capcom title. 

In Japan, Capcom will be giving the Wii one of its biggest upcoming titles, the historical action slasher Sengoku Basara 3. 
This is the third numbered installment in the series that's known as Devil Kings in the West. In Japan, the series is 
extremely popular, with Capcom frequently making note of the appeal the game has with female audiences. 

Sengoku Basara 3 was announced a couple of weeks back, but without any information about platform. Capcom still hasn't made 
official platform announcement for the game, and in response to the Nikkei report only said that it would make public 
announcements about its products when it deemed appropriate. 

We presume the appropriate time will come closer to the Tokyo Game Show in late September.
