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.
