Running on iPhone 6S with latest iOS version.

Smooth. Very beautiful looking

I think I am still in the tutorial

I am not sure about the "Fate" to be purchased but you can subscribe for additional contents.

I would love some impressions on what you get when you pay or don't pay. The subscription stuff is confusing and I personally don't like auto renewal purchases. And then I wonder if the game is crippled without the sub. I suppose someone who has played the original would know best?


Nevermind. Ios9? I'm still on 8 and won't be leaving anytime soon. Guess I'll pass on this app. For a game with mostly text I feel like having it at ios7 or so would have been preferable to get a wider audience. The ios9 requirement is a big downside for me.

Would've tried it if it weren't for that iOS9 requirement.

Me too. iOS 8.4.1 here, and no plans to update until Monster Hunter gets fixed.

It's kind of annoying me that quite often when I try to scroll down the page in the app I end up bringing up the side bar, because I must be swiping down and slightly to the right by accident. This then resets the page to the top again when I tap out of it. A minor annoyance, But still annoying. Lol

Plus, It takes too long to load when the app is first launched.

The IAPs could definitely use more explanation. I'm cautiously diving in....

Loading time is kinda strange. Just then it take more than 5 minutes and still stuck at "Syncing Character" so I kill the app. And when re-launch, I go straight into the game.

I think the pay model is similar to the browser version, which I have no idea either... Time to pay the official site a visit.
