Capcom unleashing Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting on iOS devices next month


The world of Monster Hunter will spread to another platform in June, franchise creator Capcom has announced. Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting is in development for iOS devices and will offer a "new intuitive control system...eschewing the typical D-pad" -- i.e., finger swipes and taps. It all looks a bit Infinity Blade-ish to us.

That's it for details, though more are sure to be revealed at next month's E3 ... just in time for the game to leap onto the App Store.

LOS ANGELES, CA – May 18, 2011 – Capcom®, a leading developer and publisher of video games, today announced "Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting" for the iPhone and iPod touch. Like 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.
