It looks like it might be time for hunters to rejoice, as a fully fledged Monster Hunter game has made its way onto the iOS platform. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G for iOS released yesterday in Japan and appears to be a port (unlike 2011's Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting) of the PSP game of the same name, known as Monster Hunter Freedom Unite in Western territories.
Like the PSP version of the game, players can group with up to four other people via Wi-Fi and take on quests that otherwise may be too difficult to take on alone. The game also supports MFi game controllers, with a controller for the game made by HORI currently in development.
Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G for iOS is available in Japan now for ¥1600, with an international release date yet to be announced.
