Here Are The First Details on Monster Hunter Stories
A whole lot cuter than you're used to.
Monster Hunter Stories is a more kid-friendly RPG spin on the Monster Hunter series, and when it was first announced I was pretty excited to see it being given this type of treatment. Now there are actually a few details surrounding the upcoming title so we have more to go on than what we did in the past.
The story begins in Rider Village, where the player character receives the Kizuna Stone from the village leader, where along with a partner he or she is tasked with unlocking its secrets as a Rider. An adorable Felyne named Nabiru is your companion on this journey, and Senpai Rider will act as a guide across the length of the game.
The turn-based battle system features different command options and monster types with their own specific habits as well. It looks extremely colorful and bold, with its own special quirks that should set it apart from the rest of the pack. I'm interested in getting into the series from this game, though I've casually played Monster Hunter in the past. This one has to be the cutest, by far!
