 Capcom Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce the inclusion of the mega-hit series Monster Hunter as a preinstalled game for the Sharp FOMA SH903i mobile phone being released today by NTT DoCoMo Inc.

 The popular Monster Hunter series of action games puts the player in the role of a fearless hunter roaming the great outdoors to track down gigantic beasts. Since the first Monster Hunter’s console release in 2004, it has cumulatively shipped over 2 million copies (as of March, 2006) around the world, securing a place as one of Capcom’s top titles.

 The FOMA 903i series of mobile phones have 1MB of i-appli program space available, making possible the implementation of cutting-edge applications that take full advantage of the latest mobile phone technology. Coupled with the ability to store data on memory cards and connect to the network for uploading and downloading, this new functionality gives Capcom the flexibility to design innovative content such as the preinstalled Monster Hunter for the high-capacity phones. In addition to the increased storage capacity, the new LCD screen on the SH903i is capable of QVGA display resolution, resulting in amazing graphics.
