Capcom's best-selling fantasy action RPG series Monster Hunter will be making the leap to the iPhone in Japan this June with spin-off title Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting. As reported by Japanese gaming news site Andriasang, the new title focuses exclusively on touchscreen-controlled battles with familiar monsters from the series. Players will use series of taps and swipes to attack, evade, defend and use items from a third-person, over-the-shoulder perspective, as shown in a short video demo posted by Famitsu. Last year's Monhan Diary Mobile Felyne Village, a social-focused mobile phone spin-off for the Monster Hunter series, attracted over a million players roughly two months after its August launch. The latest entry in the main Monster Hunter series, PSP's Monster Hunter Freedom 3, shipped 4 million units in its first month, contributing to series sales of more than 17 million since the series' 2004 debut on the PS2.
