Capcom working on a big Monster Hunter Stories update

Posted on April 30, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

Monster Hunter Stories will be getting a free major update this summer, Capcom has announced. It’s planned for this summer in Japan.

The update includes the following:

1. New Otomon: Teostra, Kushala Daora, and Rajang.

2. Character can now change appearance (eyes, mouth, hair, makeup) and gender mid-game at player’s house. New character customization parts will also be added that allow the player to dress like the original riders in the Ride On anime: Geenie, Hyoro and Mil.

3. Most of the DLC-exclusive Otomon will be able to be obtained from Monster Nests after passing through the ending, including White Monoblos, Molten Tigrex, Oroshi Kirin and Glavenus.

*Exception applies to collaboration Otomon which will remain obtainable only through DLC.

Monster Hunter Stories is coming west this fall. There’s a good chance that this update will be offered overseas as well in due time.

    It’d be nice if the localized one included the update on-cartridge so you wouldn’t have to download it.

      It just might, since we’ll be getting the version that includes all of the current Japanese content to the point. That said, I’m looking forward to finally making Rajang feel what’s it’s like to be on the bottom. Also really loving how the Rajang and Teo sets look in this.

    This game is amazing! Cannot wait for this to be released in the West! Hopefully my Save carries over also.

    That freaky blue penis-looking monster looks so out-of-place there.

      You mean the Khezu? It’s be a part of the series for a while.

        I’m just saying in this artwork were everything’s made to look more cartoony it sticks out quite a bit.

          Well, I agree with you on that.
