Monster Hunter Stories 2

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast 100, both Oni Dino and Galen are exhausted and a little loopy… But there are some great games to talk about. Oni Dino’s been playing Prinny, Can I Really Be the Hero? While Galen’s hopping on the trends with Among Us. There were plenty of new details for games we’re excited about in the news, then we cap things off with a discussion of bad licensed games that we loved anyway.

To celebrate 100 episodes, we’ve opened up a podcast discord for listeners to chill, chat, and make friends. Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

In the original Monster Hunter Stories on 3DS, players were able to customize the character they played as. Capcom has now confirmed that the feature will be returning in Monster Hunter Stories 2.

Although specifics weren’t shared, a slide shown during a TGS stream today gave an idea as to what fans can expect. It looks like you’ll be able customize hairstyles, hair colors, skin colors, and more.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, two Nintendo Directs came out and they’re pretty fresh! Monster Hunter Rise and Stories 2 look so tempting, and so many other games have us looking forward to the future. Also, Mario 3D All-stars is apparently emulated, but…is that really a problem? We also throw in some next-gen talk with the recent PS5 price and pre-order situation.
