To celebrate the launch and 3 million pre-registers, Monster Hunter Now will be sending out gifts later this month. You can learn more over on the developer’s official Twitter.

We’ve covered Monster Hunter Now previously in the past—translating the interview and Q&A, as well as the gameplay breakdown.

Monster Hunter Now is developed by the Japanese development team at Niantic. The game feels like a breath of fresh air compared to Pokémon GO, and we hope everyone has a fantastic time hunting!

As a huge fan of the mainline Monster Hunter series, this game feels like a faithful transition to mobile, whilst utilising the geolocation/AR-based gameplay Niantic is known for.
