LOS ANGELES, CA – June 1, 2011 – Capcom®, a leading developer and publisher of video games, today released “Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” for the iPhone and iPod touch. As in the console games, “Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” transports the player to a fantasy environment where massive creatures roam the land. In epic encounters against titanic beasts you’ll battle claw against sword for glory and survival.
Players interact with the game using a new intuitive control system. Eschewing the typical D-pad, players swing their weapon in “Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” by tapping the target with one finger. Blocks can be performed by tapping the screen with two fingers while evading is accomplished by sliding two fingers left or right. Basic movement can be accomplished by sliding a single finger, left or right. The result is an effortless control scheme that takes full advantage of the device’s touch screen.
Upon defeating beasts players unlock materials that they can use to craft new more powerful weapons. There are nearly 40 different weapons in the game divided into three main categories: one-handed swords, big swords and double swords. Players can also team up with a friend and share the hunt as well as the spoils via Bluetooth.
“Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” is available on the Apple App Store for $4.99. For more information, visit our press page at www.press.capcom.com.
