It seems the only way you can bring a big name IP to mobile is either as an endless runner or a match three puzzle game. You can now add Monster Hunter to that list thanks to the newly announced Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On for mobile.
Based on the Anime spin-off of the same name, the puzzler combines one of the biggest genres on iOS and Android with cute animated versions of many Monster Hunter staples. It isn’t the first game to be based on the TV series either, with a 3DS game also in development and due for release in the new year. If you haven’t heard of the show, we’ve added a trailer down below you can also check out.
There’s no release date outside of Japan, but we’ll keep you informed when we know more about Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On. It certainly looks colourful, and there’s a ton of Monster Hunter references for good measure. Excited?
