Monster Hunter Stories released in Japan late last year, the spin-off of the monster hunting franchise drives the series to a whole different avenue with turn-based combat and with a cel-shaded, kid-friendly art style. Earlier this year, we got the news that the game would be coming West sometime in the fall of 2017; just today, Capcom and Nintendo announced that game will be launching on Sep. 8 in Europe.
Monster Hunter Stories lets players take on the role of a Rider instead of the typical Hunter. You’ll be hatching monsters and using them in turn-based battles – leveling them up, customizing them, and riding on them throughout the world. Stories also features Amiibo support, which is a first for a Monster Hunter game. The Amiibo will unlock special monsters and other bonus content.

Monster Hunter Stories launches on Sep. 8 in Europe for the 3DS. A release date for North America has yet to be confirmed.
