Sega has announced in this week’s Famitsu (via Hachima Kikou) a Monster Hunter-like game, for smartphone devices.

Players will be able to fight with up to three other comrades on missions, each one lasting roughly five or so minutes. As the game is built around smartphone devices, ease-of-use controls are the focus, allowing you to play with only one hand.

Three main commands in the game include your regular attack, guarding, and a “special pair attack.” You’ll be able to make use of five different weapons at the start of service, including a lance, a large sword, dual swords, a hammer, and a bow.

The free-to-play game will be coming with micro-transactions, and it’s slotted for a release in Japan some time next month.
