Monster Hunter Stories Switch

As part of today’s Partner Showcase, Nintendo officially announced that Monster Hunter Stories is coming to the Nintendo Switch in Summer 2024.

Unfortunately, Nintendo did not confirm a concrete release date. The new version will be fully voiced, has HD visuals, and a new museum feature.

The original Monster Hunter Stories first launched in 2016 for Japan, so it’s long overdue for a proper update. It is a turn-based RPG, and a Nintendo 3DS classic developed by Capcom and Marvelous.

You can watch the new trailer for Monster Hunter Stories’ big return in the full Nintendo Direct:

Monster Hunter stories focuses on Riders instead of Hunters. Accordingly, it has a friendlier tone that younger audiences can also enjoy.

A sequel, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, launched in 2021 and is also available now on the Nintendo Switch. It follows the same style and gameplay as its predecessor.

This sequel gives fans an idea of what modern visuals and features to expect when they revisit the previous game.

However, most Monster Hunter fans are looking to the future after the Monster Hunter Sunbreak expansion officially wrapped up.

Capcom announced Monster Hunter Wilds at The Game Awards 2023 last December. The reveal trailer showcased a variety of new monsters, some new locations, and monster riding as seen in Stories.

The new title is coming in 2025, and it will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and the Xbox Series X|S. More information about Monster Hunter Wilds is reportedly coming this summer.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the Monster Hunter franchise. So, longtime fans will surely appreciate the opportunity to revisit a classic installment this summer, too.
