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.

Stories will also feature several retailer-specific monsters and collaboration character costumes. As a bonus, players who have save data for Monster Hunter Generations will get a special weapon. Finally, an anime series titled Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On is set to debut in October as well. 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.

    Guess this’ll be the first japan only amiibos cause they sure as fuck aren’t gonna localize this game.

    • Lord Ackercocke

      I’m sure there’s a good chance it maybe localised. Capcom will most likely be guaging interest via the sales of MH Generations in the west.

  • Didney Worl

    I’m hoping that with them using amiibo, it might actually mean this’ll get a western release. Those amiibos look like they would sell out pretty fast, and I get the feeling Capcom knows it.

      I’d defiintely buy them.

      Same here, they look incredibly detailed.
