The hit fantasy video game series, Monster Hunter, has had its fair share of multi-media adaptations. Just recently at the coveted Tokyo Game Show, an anime adaptation for Monster Hunter Stories has been announced!
Monster Hunter Stories is set to be released on the Nintendo 3DS platform in 2016. The anime adaptation of the game will be aired on Fuji TV in 2016 as well and will follow the main premise of the main video game closely.
The main premise of Monster Hunter Stories focuses more on the idea of ‘monster riders’, who tame and ride monsters instead of outright killing them. These ‘monster riders’ live in a separate village from the ones that slay monsters. Fans who are interested in seeing what the anime adaptation and upcoming video game will look like can take a look at the preview videos uploaded by Capcom.
