Capcom’s Monster Hunter Social Game Hits 500,000 Users, Moves To No. 2 On GREE [Social Games]

As predicted, Capcom’s “Monhan Tankenki Maboroshi no Shima”, a social game based on the company’s action RPG series Monster Hunter, continues to do well on GREE.

The title was announced last month, launched on GREE on December 19, quickly shot up to No. 4 on the ranking of the most popular third-party games, and has now moved up to the No. 2 spot (it is trailing Konami’s Dragon Collection).

That’s not the only good news for Capcom: Monhan Tankenki Maboroshi no Shima has also jumped over the 500,000 user mark on GREE already, a more than solid number for such a new title.

The game, which was actually created by Tokyo-based gumi, is available on GREE for feature phones and smartphones.

I wouldn’t be too surprised to see Monster Hunter’s social game version to become Capcom’s very own Dragon Collection-like, long-term money maker.
