Niantic and Capcom just soft launched their previously announced real world hunting action RPG Monster Hunter Now (Free) for iOS and Android in a few countries worldwide. If you missed it, Monster Hunter Now releases worldwide on September 14th with pre-orders and pre-registrations available. It recently crossed 1 million pre-registrations as well. The other pre-registration reward tiers are on the official website and in the Tweet from the game’s account. If you’re in Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, or Sweden, you can play the soft-launched version of Monster Hunter Now now. Watch the Monster Hunter Now trailer below:
Monster Hunter Now is a free to play release and will use Niantic’s AR technology. The worldwide release date is September 14th for iOS and Android. You can pre-order Monster Hunter Now on the App Store for iOS here and pre-register for it on Google Play for Android here. The in app purchases include different sets of gems. Even though I’ve stopped caring about these AR games, I love Monster Hunter and will try Monster Hunter Now next month on iOS. Capcom has been good about cross promotion with its own brands, so I’m interested to see if we get something in Sunbreak on PC and consoles to go alongside this launch. Check out the official website here. What do you think of Monster Hunter Now and will you be playing it next month iOS and Android?
