It’s been several months since Capcom announced Monster Hunter Stories for the Nintendo 3DS. Today, we’re learning some details regarding the game as Famitsu published a 6-page story highlighting the game’s story, characters, and battle system.
Monster Hunter Stories will allow players to choose between a male and female protagonist, which will always have a Felyne companion accompanying them through their adventure. The game will also have a number of secondary characters to assist the hero.
In the feature, Capcom has once again confirmed Monster Hunter Stories will be a JRPG that will have real-time combat. The graphic style features a more cell-shaded approach when compared to the main Monster Hunter series and its overall aesthetics is being done in a way that would entice a younger audience to enjoy.
Monster Hunter Stories is scheduled to be released in Japan in 2016. No word from Capcom whether or not it’ll get a a western release.
