Monster Hunting In London

Posted by TurtleGirl On July - 6 - 2009

Monster Hunter is the biggest game in Japan by far, outselling Pokemon and Wii Fit last year. Home to over three million players, Japan has seen the growth of a new kind of social gaming in recent years as this PSP game has won over the hearts of gamers across the country. Players can be found in most tube compartments, in many cafes and fast food restaurants, and even just congregating on street corners. Festivals have been held in all the major cities attracting thousands of players and Monster Hunter package holidays are also popular.



 
Only a stone’s throw away from Tottenham Court Road tube station in central London the Gathering Hall. I headed over there to check out what all the hype was about. I had only played Monster Hunter a few times on my PSP, but I was curious to know what the place was like, and check out the interest. The Gathering Hall looked amazing from the outside and inside was just as warm and inviting. A representative told me all about what the game entailed and I was invited to have a look around. It was interesting to see whether this game and social event was going to be successful and judging by the amount of people that took part in the event, it was a positive outcome. The representative was nice enough to give me a free Monster Hunter Freedom Unite T shirt as well. Head down there and check it out with some friends.
