Monster Hunter Stories will be released in three editions.

ONE Store Beta Now Available

It has been years since the game’s release on mobile, and finally, Monster Hunter Stories is finally coming to PS4, Switch, and PC this June.

Monster Hunter Stories is a spinoff of Capcom’s hit franchise that was released initially back in October 2016 in Japan (September 2017 in the West). Since then, the game has been released on mobile devices, but it is only now that the game is coming to modern consoles and PC.

Unlike the mainline entries in the series, Monster Hunter Stories features a turn-based RPG battle system along with a more stylized art style that should make it a fresh experience for long-time fans who haven’t tried it yet.

On Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam, the game will be available in a Standard Edition, a Monster Hunter Stories 1+2 Collection), and a Deluxe Edition which includes a bunch of in-game goodie such as armor and outfits.

Capcom also announced the pre-order bonuses for the game which include Navirou’s “King” and “Queen” Outfits.

For this console and PC release, Capcom shared the following unique features:

  • Refined Graphics: Originally released on the Nintendo 3DS, players can now experience riding Monsties in stunning detail on larger screens, enhanced with improved modeling, textures, and lighting in high definition.
  • Now Fully Voiced: Immerse yourself in the adventure with full Japanese and English voiceovers.
  • Additional Language Support: Monster Hunter Stories will have additional language support, newly featuring Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Korean, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, and Arabic.

  • Included Title Updates (TU): Previously only available in Japan, players can now enjoy title updates, unlocking content from Title Update 1.20 and Title Update 1.30. Enjoy the monsters Teostra, Kushala Daora, and Rajang, as well as other update contents from the original version.
