There were some rumors going around that Monster Hunter was headed to the iPhone, and it looks like those rumors were true. The game is expected some time in June.

From the press release:

    Capcom®, a leading developer and publisher of video games, today announced “Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” for the iPhone and iPod touch. Like the console games, “Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” transports the player to a fantasy environment where massive creatures roam the land. In epic encounters against titanic beasts you’ll battle claw against sword for glory and survival.

    Players interact with the game using a new intuitive control system. Eschewing the typical D-pad, players swing their weapon in “Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” by tapping the target with one finger. Blocks can be performed by tapping the screen with two fingers while evading is accomplished by sliding two fingers left or right. Basic movement can be accomplished by sliding a single finger, left or right. The result is an effortless control scheme that takes full advantage of the device’s touch screen.

    “Monster Hunter: Dynamic Hunting” is expected to be available in June.
