Monster Hunter is traditionally a fast-paced action game where hunters must take down mighty beasts and dragons in order to get stronger. The upcoming spin-off title, Monster Hunter Stories, instead puts players into the role of a tamer who grows deep bonds with these many monsters to fight along side. While fighting monsters is still the core concept behind this title, this time around it will be done in turn-based battles that rely on the player anticipating the opponent monsters’ next moves. Players will even be able to go online and battle against friends to see who has built the strongest team of monsters.
Monster Hunter Stories is planned to release later this fall. You can check out the official box art in addition to the reveal trailer below at around the 2:30 mark!
