Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting revealed for iPhone

Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise appears to be getting touchy. Japanese game mag Famitsu recently outed a new iOS edition of the cult monster collecting series called Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting.

The simplified version follows in the same conceptual vein as other Monster Hunter titles, but trades complex multiplayer fighting for one-on-one finger swiping. Players will trade blows with a familiar batch of monsters using straightforward touch controls to attack, defend, or use items. Have a look at the demo video to see the iPhone entry in play:

Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting hits the Japanese App Store next month. There are no plans to release the app anywhere else, but considering the brand's popularity in the West, we'll likely hear something official soon.

    I could see me trying this out assuming its going to work on my iPod Touch 2G but I'm not holding out any hope most new games don't work any more I need to get some money together and pick up a iPad 2! :) Never really played Monster Hunter I tried it out on the Wii but never got into the Multiplayer since no friends with a Wii and that is what I want it for but from my time with the Singleplayer its very Phantasy Star like which I love so stands to reason I would love a Monster Hunter game we just need one on the 360!

    I'm the opposite. I wish the health bars were removed from this. I love the monster hunter series and it just doesn't seem right that this has a health bar.

    Wish those health bars were on monsters in the handhold/console games

    I am seriously jonesing for any Monster Hunter stuff. I loved the original I need MOAR! Current gen would suit it really nicely too.

    Look capcom just because you're releasing another monster hunter on another system it doesn't mean I'm gonna have to buy the system! D:<

    @yetanotherCid304 Someone having to convince an iPhone user to waste their money? Yeah, that's going to be tough.

    Hopefully the iPad will get an HD version. I would like to give this game a try and what has so many addicted to it. But I'll only try it if it comes to iPad as well. Will it even come to America? I know it's HUGE in Japan. I wonder if it will do as well here. I'd certainly like to find out.

    No Dynamic fights, no customization, no feylines, no multiplayer, no exploring, no combining...just tapping... I like a good iphone game as much as the next guy, but capcom is going to have to do some major convicing to get me to buy this game.
  • Nodoudt - May 18, 2011 8:24 p.m.

    If all the monster fights are of equal length with the console versions, I'd pick this up in a heartbeat. Think of all the time you could pass on long trips.
