Monster Hunter Stories pre-load live on the North American 3DS eShop
Monster Hunter Stories is about two weeks away from launching in the west. Since the release is so close, Nintendo has started a pre-load option on the North American 3DS eShop.
Pre-loading will let you get an early start on launch. You can purchase Monster Hunter Stories in advance and download most of its data. Then on release date, you’ll only need a small update to begin playing.
Monster Hunter Stories takes up 14,736 blocks digitally. That amounts to 1.8GB.
