character Gon lives on Whale Island with his aunt Mito. Ever since
he was a child, Gon wanted to find his father who was a Hunter.
His dream then, was to become a Hunter himself and find poppy.
Hunters are adept specialists who seek out targeted objects and
pleasures in various vocations ranging from ancient treasure to
the finest food delicacies. They're refined experts and as such,
must develop skills, take on challenges and eventually pass the
Hunter Qualifications Exam. Along with aspiring Hunters Reolio and
Clapika, Gon sets off to meet the world.
As the story in the PS2 game commences, ancient ruins
have been found and the government in jurisdiction contacts the
Hunter Association for help in protecting the site from
interlopers. The head of the Hunter guild contacts Gon, Clapika
and Reolio and sends them off on a mission to learn more about the
ruins and fend off a mysterious figure. Gon and comrades travel in
a 3-D world with full control afforded to the player. An Aura
System shows attack power available to each character for players
to plan whether to fight or run. A bonus card is included in each
game featuring any one of six characters.
