Monster Hunter Now is another augmented reality game slated for release on iOS and Android. Niantic is relying on Monster Hunter Now as one of the few AR games the publisher has continued to work on.
So far, Monster Hunter Now has fallen short of the popularity of Pokemon GO, despite fighting monsters and leveling the hero with equipment and raids. However, the situation can be changed.
Pokemon GO allows you to transfer Pokemon to other Pokemon parts. This feature has been a part of Pokémon games since the days of the Game Boy and Nintendo DS. If Niantic decides to move it to Monster Hunter Now, then the game will be popular not only among mobile gamers, but also among console and PC players.
For example, it would be possible to transfer defeated monsters or received materials. The only question is which Monster Hunter games to combine with Monster Hunter Now. In general, Capcom, the holder of the rights to MH, is aiming for cross-platform, like other mobile game developers, so we are waiting for the details.
