Pokémon for adults? Monster Crown to release in full on October 12

By - | Views: 9,648

The monster taming and battling game Monster Crown is set to leave Early Access on October 12. This follows their Kickstarter campaign in 2018 and then little over a year in Early Access.

What is the game? Inspired by the retro Pokémon games, Monster Crown from Studio Aurum and publisher SOEDESCO puts you inside a "dark story as you create your own monster legacy". Instead of capturing creatures, you enter a special pact with them to join together and become a team. It's an interesting spin, along with a more mature story it's nice to see a different direction for such a game that traditionally targets a much more casual family-friendly audience.

The announcement came with a rather silly video:

Features:

  • Make pacts with monsters to receive their protection in return for shelter
  • Breed and fuse over 200 base monsters to create your own new species
  • Travel across Crown Island with your monster allies to uncover a dark world.
  • Make a pivotal decision that will drastically change the ending and post-game
  • Play online to battle and trade, and have your new species reach across the globe

I guess next time I see someone ask "could there every be a Pokemon game where the main character is older/the story isn't geared for 10-year-olds," I can point them to this game.
