Their history developing MOBAs, which include the previously mention Pokémon Unite, as well as Honor of Kings and Arena of Valor, have some suggesting that this Monster Hunter title could also be joining the genre.
Capcom didn't reveal what shape the title would take but did say this about the game TiMi are developing:
"This first-time partnership between TiMi and Capcom will combine the experience and strengths of both sides, allowing Monster Hunter to scale to more platforms with an aim to give global hunters – experienced or new – the freedom to hunt as they desire, anytime and anywhere."
This isn't the first Monster Hunter game for mobile devices. There was an iOS/Android port of Monster Hunter Stories - a game first developed for the Nintendo 3DS - as well as Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and Monster Hunter Riders, the latter of which was discontinued in June of this year.
No release date has been given, though don't expect to hear much more about this Monster Hunter Mobile game until well into 2023.
