Monster Hunter by far is the biggest game in Japan and more popular than Pokemon or Wii fit. Home to over three million players, Japan has seen the growth of a new kind of social gaming in most recent years as this PSP game has won over the hearts of gamers across the country. Players can be found in many cafes and fast food restaurants, and even congregating on street corners, although I canâ€™t say the same for the United Kingdom. Japan hosts festivals that have been held in all the major cities attracting thousands of players and even have Monster Hunter package holidays.
Only a stoneâ€™s throw away from Tottenham Court Road tube station in Central London the Gathering Hall will be the ultimate destination for Monster Hunters. Aiming to recreate the social gaming environment enjoyed by so many players in Asia, people will be able to meet other players easily, download exclusive quests, learn how to play on dedicated tutorial nights and even meet the developers when they visit the UK. The Gathering Hall will be open seven days a week and entrance will be free and exclusive to anyone with a PSP and a copy of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite.
