– Japan’s favorite hunting action series set to stir up “Monster Hunter Craze” in China –

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced an official service start date of December 17, 2015 for "Monster Hunter Online", an online game for the PC rolling out in China in cooperation with Tencent Holdings Limited.

The "Monster Hunter" series features hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. The series sparked a social phenomenon known as the "Monster Hunter Craze" after gaining popularity primarily among young users with its wireless and online cooperative play. Since the first "Monster Hunter" title made its debut in 2004 the series has expanded beyond games into other media, and overall has grown into a mega-hit with cumulative sales of more than 35 million units as of December 3, 2015.

"Monster Hunter Online" represents a new kind of "Monster Hunter", and will launch in China in cooperation with Chinese internet giant Tencent Holdings Limited. Since the game’s pre-launch on November 27, it has held the number one spot for the most anticipated PC online game on the website "duowan.com", China’s premiere video game authority; favorable reviews from within the market such as this helped solidify the official service start date.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by making the most of its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining games for the ever-expanding global market.
