Monster Hunter Stories will be coming to North America this Fall, as was announced in today’s Nintendo Direct.
The news of a new Monster Hunter game is always exciting for long-time fans of the franchise. With the whispers of Monster Hunter Stories on the horizon, the news is all the more thrilling.
Capcom’s Monster Hunter series has seen some wacky new ideas in the past few installments. With the introduction of the mounting ability and the deviant monsters, the series has surely grown over the years. Now Monster Hunter Stories brings hunters a new concept of riding. For the very first time in the entire series, hunters will have the ability to ride and bond with their own monster! Bonding with their monster allows hunters to pull off powerful combo attacks.
Riding monsters also opens a new world to explore. Hunters can fly, swim and yes… even crash into areas. Before riding a monster, a hunter will need to collect eggs and hatch them. Players’ battles involve a turn-based system that allows a fight with up to five monsters!! If you are up to the challenge, then prepare your Nintendo 3DS for this new adventure which is launching Fall 2017.
