In the Monster Hunter universe, not everyone hunts. There are also Monster Riders, who instead of hunting, form a bond with monsters instead. These Monster Riders raise and live in harmony with monsters, forming a bond using artifacts known as “Kinship Stones”. These creatures become known as “Monsties”, and have great powers to use. By becoming a Rider, you too can befriend countless Monsties, riding them as you explore a vast, exciting world.
Monster Hunter Stories will be available as two apps on each platform. MHST: The Adventure Begins is a demo version of the game, allowing players to explore the game free of charge. The Monster Hunter World app offers players the complete game for the one-time price of $19.99 USD (no In-App Purchases).
