Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) is pleased to announce that the number of registered players has surpassed two million (as of October 25, 2012) for "Minna to Monhan Card Master", a social game developed jointly by Capcom and gloops, Inc. (gloops) that uses the Mobage social game platform.
"Monster Hunter" is a series of hunting action games in which players go up against enormous monsters against a backdrop of spectacular scenery. Playing the game by using communications to cooperate with friends to fight powerful monsters has created a new style of communicating that sparked a social event called the "Monster Hunter craze". The number of fans has increased steadily since the first "Monster Hunter" title made its debut in 2004. The series has grown into a mega-hit with cumulative sales of more than 21 million units as of September 30, 2012.
"Minna to Monhan Card Master" is an original social game in which characters that appear in the "Monster Hunter" series of games fight by using cards. Combining images from "Monster Hunter" with card illustrations that are also familiar to social game users and with guilds and other forms of communication unique to social games has made "Minna to Monhan Card Master" a big success not only with current fans but has also helped attract a new class of fans. As a result, in April 2012, this game received the Mobage Award 2011 Gold Prize, which is given to social games that receive the greatest amount of support from Mobage users. In addition, due to the continuing provision of outstanding operational services, the number of registered members surpassed the two million mark eight months after distribution started in February 2012.
Capcom and gloops plan to continue working closely together to develop and distribute social games with the goal of creating services that can contribute to more growth of the social game market.
