The lights are on
Monster Hunter fans will be able to unite on iOS devices soon. Today, Capcom announced that 2009 PSP game Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be available for iOS later this summer.
As the trailer below indicates, the game has been updated with optimized visuals, touch screen controls, and new camera targeting options.
If touch-screen controls aren't for you, Freedom Unite will be compatible with controller peripherals for a classic experience. The cooperative element will also return, supported by wi-fi connection. For more shots of the game in action, check out the image gallery below.

If they bring this out on Android, I'll definitely play it, since I have an Nvidia Shield. That being said, the game is already playable on android with a PSP emulator, and it runs fairly well, so I would be fine either way.
As cool as this seems I don't feel to good about the controls. They look a little weird.
I am crazy and stupid enough to play this on my iphone (without the dinky little gamepad :P).
its going to be basically unplayable on a phone
This sounds like a horrible, horrible idea... I think I'll stick to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on my 3DS, while waiting for 4.
