Pokemon Unite developer TiMi Studios, a subsidiary of Chinese gaming giant Tencent, has announced that it's working on a new Monster Hunter mobile title alongside Capcom. We don't have too many details about the game right now, but the developer assures fans that it'll be "unique".

According to a blog post on the official TiMi Studios website, the Monster Hunter mobile game will "reproduce the hunting actions" that are integral to the core of the Monster Hunter series. However, the game will also be a "new game experience unique for mobile devices and phones". Sounds like you're not just getting a regular ol' port of an old-school Monster Hunter game.

This is the first time TiMi and Capcom have worked together, and the post says that the "experiences and strengths" of both studios will be on full display. The game will ostensibly be aimed at "experienced or new" Monster Hunter players, so even if this is your first Monster Hunter game, you shouldn't have too difficult a time.

It's a good time for the Monster Hunter franchise right now. Sales of the latest release, Monster Hunter Rise expansion Sunbreak, are going pretty strong, and the series is also popping up in some unexpected places, including as DLC for the fresh-out-of-the-oven Sonic Frontiers. I guess the hunters need all the help they can get, right?

So, what can we expect from the Monster Hunter mobile game? Info is pretty thin on the ground right now, but the game is being created by TiMi Studios, who are known for some of the most popular mobile games around. These include Pokemon UniteCall of Duty: Mobile, and the phenomenally successful Honor of Kings, so you can expect Monster Hunter Mobile to be done right, whatever it ends up looking like.

We'll bring you more on the upcoming Monster Hunter mobile title as soon as we get it. News might not be forthcoming for a while, though; the announcement doesn't give much away about the project, so there's a chance TiMi and Capcom will simply hunker down and get to work on it. If you're hungry for more Monster Hunter in the meantime, you can pick up the latest release Monster Hunter Rise on PC and Nintendo Switch. Its expansion Sunbreak is also available on those platforms.
