by Capcom and gloops –
Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) is pleased to announce that the number of registered players for the social game “Minna to Monhan Card Master” reached one million on March 20, 2012. This title, which uses the Mobage social game platform, was developed jointly by Capcom and gloops, Inc. (gloops).
“Monster Hunter” is a series of hunting action games in which players go up against enormous monsters against a backdrop of spectacular scenery. Playing the game by using communications to cooperate with friends to fight powerful monsters has created a new style of communicating that sparked a social event called the “Monster Hunter craze”. The number of fans has increased steadily since the first “Monster Hunter” title made its debut in 2004. The series has grown into a mega-hit with cumulative sales of more than 21 million units as of the end of 2011.
“Minna to Monhan Card Master” is an original social game in which characters that appear in the “Monster Hunter” series of games fight by using cards. Players belong to a “guild” that is made up of users. The objective is to defeat other guilds as players collect and strengthen their cards. Combining images from “Monster Hunter” with card illustrations that are also familiar to social game users and with guilds and other forms of communication unique to social games has made “Minna to Monhan Card Master” a big success. With these features, this title has succeeded in attracting “Monster Hunter” fans as well as people who are new to this game genre. As a result, the number of registered members surpassed the one million mark only one month after distribution started.
Capcom and gloops plan to continue working closely together to develop and distribute social games with the goal of creating services that can contribute to more growth of the social game market.
