While it may have been a long time coming, Capcom finally announced that Monster Hunter Stories will be released in North America on September 8 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
This is the same date Nintendo had already confirmed for Europe, so both sides of the Atlantic will get a chance to play it on the same day (time zones notwithstanding).
They have also revealed fans will be able to download a demo through the eShop on August 10. It will feature a save transfer option so you can take your progress from the demo into the main game.
Here's a short overview of the game:
Prepare to embark on an RPG adventure unlike anything the Monster Hunter series has ever known. In Monster Hunter Stories, become a rider and bond with monsters to raise their potential and unleash powerful combos.
Players can fly, swim and crash into new areas of the map; discover eggs to collect and hatch; and participate in turn-based battles with a party of up to five monsters. Monster Hunter Stories launches on 8th September.
Along with the announcement, Capcom also shared a brand new English trailer for the game which you can check out below. I don't know about you guys, but I tink it looks pretty darn good.
