Frontier Gunner (Asobimo) JPN - like Monster Hunter but with guns

http://app.famitsu.com/20120201_27999/
Official site: http://fgun.jp/index

Out in mid-February in Japan on iOS and Android. Free-to-play but with content packages to buy. No word yet on a western release.






- Help defend C24, a colony under threat from an unknown enemy
- 3D third-person action game, focused on gunplay
- Takes place on vast planet fighting against giant creatures
- Areas span cities and more natural environments
- Co-op online play for up to four players
- Receive timed missions from a guild at home base
- Receive guild points and credits (money) from missions
- Upgrade rank with guild points to take on tougher missions
- Upgrade character / guns with growth points from enemies
- Control character with a touch stick, move camera by screen drag
- Tap on objects on the field to lock-on, use right button to shoot
- Guns come in a variety of classes
- Each gun class has standard, burst and charged shots
- Dodge / roll by using boost - can also be used to attack
- Other in-game interfaces for items, reloading, weapon selection

... So far, so Monster Hunter clone, except it's now mostly all gunplay. Apparently, it will be a free to play title with prices for more substantial content packs. If you want a Monster Hunter fix for iOS you best hope this is localised.

Holy sit that looks awesome

Just wondering how the controls work. I am used to the default controls of Modern Combat series and when I tried a similar twin-stick control scheme on it, it was just awkward. I hope it works for this though

Wow,this looks great. I played my 3 Monster Hunter titles ( on PSP) more that 300 hours each (i think i have like 600 hours play with the second one xD).

If it will be as good as it looks,I'm going to download this on release day for sure!

It isn't twin stick controls. There's a left stick to move the character and you can manipulate the camera by dragging the screen. Instead of manual aim you lock on to enemies (with a tap) and you can then move / boost in and around them and use the big button on the right to shoot. Think Metroid Prime or the gunners in Phantasy Star Portables.
