Gamers, get ready for an epic adventure! Monster Hunter Now, developed by Niantic and Capcom, is set to launch globally this September. The highly anticipated game follows a “move and play” gameplay style similar to Pokémon Go, where players will embark on thrilling hunts for monsters in their surroundings.
🔥 A Legendary Franchise
If you’re a fan of the original Monster Hunter series, you know just how popular and beloved this game franchise is. Since its debut in 2004, it has captivated players across multiple platforms with its immersive gameplay and thrilling battles against monstrous creatures. In Monster Hunter Now, you will step into the shoes of a Hunter whose mission is to protect their surroundings from these awe-inspiring beasts.
🌍 Global Launch
After being announced in April of this year, Monster Hunter Now is now gearing up for its worldwide release. The closed beta, held last month, gave players a taste of the game’s mechanics. While the core gameplay remains intact, there have been some exciting changes. Each battle will now last for a 75-second timeframe, adding a sense of urgency and intensity. The controls have also been simplified to a one-finger swipe, allowing for smooth and accessible gameplay.
Upon its global launch, Monster Hunter Now will introduce players to a roster of 13 formidable monsters. Prepare to encounter creatures such as Great Jagras, Kulu-Ya-Ku, Pukei-Pukei, Barroth, Great Girros, Tobi-Kadachi, Jyuratodus, Paolumu, Anjanath, Rathian, Legiana, Rathalos, and Diablos. To aid you in your battles, you will have access to six unique weapons: Sword & Shield, Great Sword, Long Sword, Hammer, Light Bowgun, and Bow. Each weapon possesses special skills and abilities, allowing for diverse and strategic gameplay.
One exciting feature unveiled during the gameplay showcase is Group Hunt. Players can team up with nearby individuals, within a 200-meter radius, to take on a powerful monster together. Simply find your teammates, accept the invitation, and face off against the fearsome creature. Additionally, you have the option to join hunting parties with friends, further enhancing the cooperative aspect of the game.
