Capcom started out the new month with many surprises during their Capcom Network Games Conference, where they revealed a number of online and smartphone games. While Breath of Fire 6 was one of the event’s biggest surprises, Capcom also showcased several upcoming Monster Hunter games for smartphone devices and PC.

 

The Monster Hunter series is mainly known for its pure-action hunting-style games, but Capcom have also had their share of spin-off titles in Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Felyne Village G for PSP and others. Today, Capcom revealed three new Monster Hunter spinoff titles of different genres for smartphones and browsers.

The first of the bunch is a massively multiplayer browser “monster intercepting strategic role-playing game,” called Monster Hunter Mezeporta Reclamation. To be exact, it is a spinoff of Monster Hunter Frontier G, as Mezeporta is the game’s main village.

 

In Monster Hunter Mezeporta Reclamation, the village is in a pinch, surrounded by vicious neighboring monsters. Your goal is to summon the courage to stand up against these monsters by cooperating with the villagers, guild, and other Hunters. Capcom plan on starting services for the browser game in summer of 2014.

Next up is a card game called MonHun Great Hunting Quest, which is expected to be released on October 29th for smartphone devices. In this game, you’ll be using various Monster Hunter-themed cards to attack monsters using a giant ballista-style card launcher.

 

The game will have features such as the “Giant Hunt” system that allows up to 50 players team up against giant monsters. Additionally, there will be mini-games such as “Meat Cooking,” “Egg Delivery” and more.

Lastly, Capcom revealed MonHun Always Felyne Life, a game focusing on the series’ Felyne companions. After the king of all Felynes proclaimed, “I’m going to quit being a king, nya! Whoever can satisfy me the most will become the next king, nya!” Felynes across the land spread out to fish and fight monsters in order to find something that would satisfy the soon-to-be-former king.

 

MonHun always Felyne Life will feature over 300 types of cute and funny Felyne equipment, and you’ll be in charge of coordinating the equipment while going on hunts with friends in search of valuable items.

 

Monster Hunter Mezeporta Reclamation will be coming out next summer, MonHun Great Hunting Quest’s service starts October 29th, and MonHun Always Felyne Life on November 26th for iOS devices.

    I soooooo want a poster of that female kirin armor card

  • ronin4life

    I didn’t mind the prospects of any of these games being Mobile.
    Then I read the article and the details of *exactly* what these games are.
    I am now deeply sadened. -_-;;

  • Altin

    So there is a good reason why you guys dont post Breath of Fire 6, right? :D

    Edit: Nevermind, I missed out on the news.

  • Thatguy

    Monster Hunter for mobiles.

    Is nothing sacred?

    • ShadowDivz

      Not in 2014.

    • KuroNathan

      they had monster hunter for mobile since… 2011, dynamic hunting

      • Namuro

        Don’t forget Monster Hunter i, it came out in 2006…in Japan only, though…

  • http://people.ign.com/rob1610 rob1610

    Meh. I doubt we’ll see them in English anyway.

  • abysswalker

    Seriously, seems these days Capcom is the company behind Square Enix that milks their franchises the most (if not more), without caring at all for their fans. I used to like Capcom but now… :(

    • Haseyo

      I don’t see how this hurts anyone at all. They clearly are still making main series titles. The second a company makes a non-main series game, it’s immediately labelled “milking.” It’s fun to have a series outside of its standard gameplay. Don’t like it? Don’t get it.

      • abysswalker

        Of course MH it’s not going anywhere it’s one of Capcom’s gold mines. Are you a MH fan? The point here is they use the name of the franchise -a very well established franchise- to market a new, completely unrelated concept, instead of building a new one from the ground up specifically centered around these gameplay elements.

        • Haseyo

          I’m a huge MH fan. Pumped over thousands of hours in this franchise. I even imported a J-3DS just for MH4. This doesn’t offend me at all. They had some PSP spin-offs as well. I welcome anything new MH-related.

      • Hatsoon Mike

        But they’re not making proper main series titles for Breath of Fire, and who knows if MH4 is even coming out in english?

      Still better than nothing. I welcome anything Monster Hunter!

  • ragingmerifes

    Capcom is aiming to compete with Zynga. wat

    • AndyLC

      Square-Enix has been doing great on mobile lately

  • Nate

    If they can make it for Mobiles I hope the one next in line is Vita. Not for me to play since I don’t like the game. But for the sales of the vita.

  • Katboy

    I thought Zynga was making Mohun games now..oh…wait… -_-

  • Tincho D

    Isn’t this just wonderful?

  • almostautumn

    The only reason I’m upset is because I know we’ll get none of these. Ever.

    Wish a Japanese company would take an aggressive stance on the western mobile market. We’d all love these games; just give them a chance. Undertake, like, 3 games exclusive to Japanese mobile and localize them; if they flop then they flop, but if not— hey hey!

  • Dexward

    I’m still enjoying Deity Wars and FF Airborne Brigade. If only they bring the card game, I’m gonna be wasting more time with them.

  • Fango

    not sure if srs

  • DyLaN

    The SRPG one sounds interesting. But meh, we won’t get it anyway since their target audience is Jap.

  • Otaku-Sama

    RPG?!…
    … I was expecting something like FF or FF Tactics.
