Monster Hunter Stories is coming to the west

In today's Nintendo Direct presentation,  Nintendo announced that Capcom will be bringing over 3DS title Monster Hunter Stories to the west this fall. 

The game starts in Rider Village, where youths strive to overcome trials to become full-fledged dragon riders. Upon overcoming this trial, the main character - boy or girl - receives a Kizuna stone from the village elder. Rider and dragon then go to explore the world to investigate a looming threat and to discover the mysteries of the stone and the world.
