Default Monster Hunter - Dynamic Hunting

According to Famitsu, the uber-popular Monster Hunter series is coming to iPhone!

So far it seems to be pretty limited though, with one-on-one battles similar to Infinity Blade.

Hmmm just realized it's stricly single player, more like a spin off from the series...
We'll see....I was hoping to get a full fledged Monster Hunter co op 'rpg' experience with GameCenter....(still hoping, info is very scarce).

Only one-on-one battles with no exploration? Well that sucks.

When I saw the thread, my heart dropped. Now seeing what it is, I'm happy that some sort of Monster Hunter is coming to iOS being it's one of my favorite games of all-time, but damn they watered it down. They could of at least allowed Yian Kut-ku to move around the area (as well as other monsters) so you can hunt it rather than just have it circling around? Hell Kut-ku wouldn't of dropped that easily with an SnS anyhow. As said, it looks like a re-skinned version of Infinity Blade but being a die-hard fan of the entire series...no doubt I'll be picking this up! *crosses fingers for either a universal build or an HD version*.


I really hope they at least implement a crafting system for weapons and armors as thats one of the best things about the game other than the hunt (well, and everything else)...

I agree. It's the crafting system and promise of ever-improving loot that keeps you hooked.

You can call it Monster Hunter as much as you'd (or Capcom would) like, but that's not Monster Hunter. I don't even know what to call that.

Yeah, i think this won't appeal to the purists- i was a big fan of MHF2 on PSP, and this definitely doesn't look like it will be the full-on experience.

However, if they can keep elements such as the crafting, and if the monsters have attacks that let them fly off and trash you with fireballs from distance, etc., that will probably be pretty good fun- like if you're a melee user, it would be cool if you'd have to keep working the legs to try to get them to stagger, or the face for a dizzy, and stop them from flying off to attack from where you couldn't reach. Bow or gun users wouldn't have such problems, but would have to have great dodging skills at close range, etc.

I really hope that this does get fine-tuned as well as it deserves, and that said, i DO have faith in Capcom, since the SFIV conversion turned out unexpectedly well.

Still, like i said, purists will probably not like it. For everyone else, i hope it ends up being awesome!

To me it's nothing more than a mini-game. Like MGS Touch. A heavily watered down game that will sell well because of it's brand name. Now I'm sure some people will love this game, but personally if it's just a monster fighting game with all the other elements removed then it's not Monster Hunter and it's not worth buying. What I loved about Monster Hunter on the PSP was roaming around the environments, hunting the occasional monster, crafting weapons/armour, collecting mushrooms, talking to cats etc.
