Summary

Monster Hunter Stories is an RPG spin-off of Capcom's much loved creature killing series, and it comes with a slightly more cuddly twist. This time out, rather than being a monster hunter, you play as a rider. Rather than simply trying to put the beasts down, you'll venture into monster dens to steal eggs. You won't necessarily know what you're getting, but once it hatches you'll tame and train it to help you in your quest, joining your ever-growing team of Monsties!

That quest involves an ancient evil known as the Blight. It has descended on your village and your world to turn once peaceful beasts into frenzied monsters. It's up to you and your furry Felyne companion, Navirou, to ride out and put a stop to this scourge.

Your Monsties won't have it easy, however, and despite the fact that you're not a hunter there's fighting to be done. In a twist on the series' traditional formula, however, the combat is turn-based and you'll deploy your rider and team of five Monsties tactically to win in battle. You can even take the fight to other players with either online or Local Play.

Monster Hunter Stories has a cel-shaded anime-ish visual style that's brighter than other games from the series, and that's reflected right through the lush, vibrant world that you'll explore.
