Monster Hunter Stories Collection

March 12: When the original Monster Hunter Stories launches on Switch this summer, it’ll be available in physical form as part of the new Monster Hunter Stories Collection. However, there’s a bit of a catch.

Monster Hunter Stories 1 will be included on the cartridge. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Rings of Ruin, however, is relegated to a digital download. The second game did already previously receive a physical release, but some might be bummed to find out that it won’t be on the cartridge for the new collection.

During today’s Capcom Highlights showcase, fans were treated to another look at the updated version of the first Monster Hunter Stories with a release date and new trailer. The title is being re-released on Switch after its original 3DS debut with updated graphics and more.

Monster Hunter Stories will launch for Switch on June 14, 2024. There’ll be a couple of Navirou outfits as pre-order bonuses – specifically king and queen. You’ll also get the Mahana Rider outfit as a save data bonus for having played Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.

Capcom Highlights digital event

A new Capcom Highlights digital event will be airing soon, Capcom just announced.

The presentation will be split into two days. If you’re only a Switch owner, you’ll be most interested in the second day as that’ll feature Monster Hunter Stories along with Street Fighter 6, Exoprimal, and Monster Hunter Now. The first day will focus on Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess and Dragon’s Dogma 2.

New details about the technical side of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy have come to light thanks to Digital Foundry such as frame rate and resolution. The outlet published a new video delving into a few different aspects.

Here’s the full rundown:

One could say that the Ace Attorney series has seen a slight resurgence over the past few years. Capcom shipped Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy on Switch in 2019, followed by The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles in 2021 (which were localized for the first time). Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy is also coming out very soon.

The good news is that Capcom won’t be abandoning the Ace Attorney series anytime soon. In an interview with 4Gamer, Kenichi Hashimoto – who most recently served as producer for the Apollo Justice re-release – said that the franchise “won’t be stopping”.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy was developed with the RE Engine, the game’s producer has revealed.

Kenichi Hashimoto was speaking about challenges of the re-release in an interview with 4Gamer. RE Engine is Capcom’s proprietary engine, but the games were originally built with other technology. Capcom also hasn’t done much with the RE Engine when it comes to adventure games.
