Monster Hunter Stories

Monster Hunter Stories, an RPG spinoff of the popular Monster Hunter series, is coming to Japan on October 8. Courtesy of Gematsu, several new things were revealed for the game, including an all new series of amiibo figures. “One-Eyed Rathalos and Rider” will be available in male and female variants, along with a “Nabiru” figure. The amiibo will unlock unique monsters in the game, and another set of figures will launch in the winter.

New screenshots of the upcoming RPG and anime series, as well as the newest gameplay trailer, can be found below. Currently the title is only scheduled for release in Japan.
