Monster Hunter, also known as Monster Hunt[2], is an unreleased Sega Mega Drive light gun game developed and slated to be published by Sega. Announced as one of the first titles to utilize the company's first-party light gun - the Menacer - it was originally scheduled for a Christmas 1993 release date, but ultimately never materialized.

Monster Hunter is unrelated to the later Capcom series of the same name.


Monster Hunter would have seen the player shoot at various monsters, including dinosaurs and mutants, and was set to be a two-player game (with the second player using a standard Control Pad.)


Despite plans by Sega of America to run extensive television and print campaigns advertising the game, only a single screenshot of Monster Hunter has been found. What little promotion the game did receive advertised it as being 1MB in size.
