Monster Hunter Now has surpassed 3 million pre-registrations and today the game that takes us on a monster hunt in augmented reality makes its official debut on the App Store and Google Play.
Born from the union of Niantic and Capcom, Monster Hunter Now brings fans (and not) of the Monster Hunter saga in the real world. Designed to be even more fun if played inside the parks, the app will allow us to come across the scariest monsters.
“The day has finally come when Monster Hunter Now is available to everyone around the world,” he said Ryozo Tsujimoto, producer of the Monster Hunter series, Capcom. “Monster Hunter Now is a unique experience from the Monster Hunter franchise, which offers simple but compelling hunting encounters directly on your smartphone: a simple touch and the movement of your fingers are enough to immerse yourself in the action, which if necessary can transform into a ‘real-time multiplayer adventure to experience with your friends.
The launch not only ushers in a new generation of hunters, but brings with it many new features. Among these, the AR mode of the camera, thanks to which it will be possible to interact with the monsters we will track down, evaluate their reactions and share the photos on social media.
The game is designed for both solo hunters and groups of friends. Some creatures, in fact, will be particularly hostile and will require the intervention of one large team to be knocked down. In this case, it will be possible to recruit other players via the “Amici” o “Group“.
Of course, also theequipment will maintain a key role in the success of hunting expeditions. The equipment components can be conveniently preset or modified via the menu of the same name.
Finally, to celebrate the launch day of Monster Hunter Now, Capcom and Niantic have partnered with ONE OK ROCKa very famous Japanese rock band who made a music video called “Make It Out Alive”, naturally inspired by the game.
