Nintendo seems to be publishing Monster Hunter Stories in the west

Posted on June 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

After debuting in Japan last October, Monster Hunter Stories is heading west this fall. What’s interesting about the western release is that Nintendo seems to be publishing the game in all overseas territories.

Our first hint came from the April Nintendo Direct where Monster Hunter Stories’ localization was announced. Rather than Capcom, Nintendo was included in the publisher label when the footage was introduced.

Now we have the Australian classification to go off of as well. Capcom is included as the “author” (developer), but once again, Nintendo is listed as its publisher. This could be the first Monster Hunter game to be published by Nintendo in all western regions.

    I guess that was the only way it would come over seeing as it wasn’t exactly successful in Japan.

    And even then, Marvelous (yes, the Senran Kagura guys) we’re the actual developers.

    • Which is funnier, because Tamsoft developed Senran Kagura while MMV published it.

      I wonder if any of the Rune Factory or Harvest Moon team worked on MonHun Stories.

      I don’t think it’s clarified to what degree MMV worked on the game though.

    I believe alongside this, we’ll get the Monster Hunter amiibo brought over stateside. It’ll give Nintendo the perfect excuse to talk about AC New Leaf again since the Monster Hunter amiibo are compatible and already localized in-game.

  • Nice~!

    Okay can we get some Dragon Quest Monster games over here too?

    Thank you Nintendo! I really wanted this one to come westside.
