Today is a good day for Capcom news. After updating Ghost Trick for iOS 11 and iPhone X, Capcom has a big spring sale on for Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise has been across multiple systems over the years. I got into the franchise on the 3DS but always wanted to play the older games as well. When Monster Hunter Freedom Unite [$ 3.99] released on iOS, it was a no brainer purchase. It is now down to just $ 3.99 from $ 14.99 on the App Store which is 74% off and the historic lowest price for this game. It is also a fully premium release with no hidden costs or in app purchases. Freedom Unite is actually an enhanced and expanded release to Monster Hunter Freedom 2 which was based on the second mainline Monster Hunter game that never released outside Japan. Watch the trailer for the iOS release below:
The iOS version was broken for a bit but Capcom actually went and fixed all the issues. I’ve been playing it quite a bit outside the house because the last few weeks have been a Monster Hunter blur for me with the amount of time I’ve put into Monster Hunter: World. It has been fun revisiting older entries in a franchise I love.
If you’ve been seeing everyone talk about Monster Hunter: World but wanted to check out the franchise on a portable, this is your cheapest option.

Hopefully Capcom releases another Monster Hunter game on iOS at some point or even localizes the currently Japan only Monster Hunter Stories.
