Hunting King is an Augmented Reality eShop Shooter
Posted by James Newton
The 3DS comes with a few augmented reality games built-in, but Arc System Works is going one better than arrows and boards: it's going hunting.
Hunting King hits the eShop in Japan next week for 500 Yen (£4.00/$6.50/€4.75), and while it uses computer-generated backdrops as you try to shoot deer and secret animals, you can also engage its augmented reality to bring a touch of hunting excitement to your everyday surroundings. Want to sneak through the invisible forest on your desk as you track a megaloceros? You can do that.
It's not the first hunting game from Arc System Works of course: we had Deer Captor on WiiWare last year, which bodes well for a Western release of Hunting King.
