• Story
The story begins in a forest near the village of Riders. Three young friends—the hero, Lilia, and Cheval—stumble upon a shining egg.

The trio perform a playful imitation of the Rite of Kinship, only to be shocked when it actually succeeds!

The egg hatches, revealing a baby Rathalos, a flying wyvern also known as “the King of the Skies.” The trio affectionately name him “Ratha,” and take him back to the village.

Days later, without warning, the village is beset upon by a monster infected by “the Black Blight.” They manage to drive it away, but not before it devastates the town—and leaves indelible scars in the hearts of Cheval and Lilia.

A year passes...

The hero receives a Kinship Stone from the Village Chief and officially becomes a Rider. Cheval and Lilia both leave the village, each on their own path. The hero, though separated now from childhood friends, partners up with the cheerful Navirou, and embarks upon a new adventure into the world of hunters.

A story of friendship and triumph await you—ride on into the world of Monster Hunter Stories!

A free intro to the paid version of the game, but for fans of Monster Hunter, this is actually a really good adaptation to mobile! I like that it's subtitled from Japanese and the art design of the game makes it feel like part of the Monster Hunter series. It's got an engaging main storyline with side quests. This doesn't feel like your typical mobile game; some cheap, pay-to-win knock-off. Give the free version a go and see if you agree. I, for one, am hooked and will be getting the full version.

I'd heard about the MH series before but ultimately decided to leave it alone. Fast-paced combat is difficult for me thanks to a gimpy arm, and I always found myself wishing I could fight alongside these beautiful beasties rather than just slaughtering them. This game solves both of those issues, and I couldn't be more excited! I will definitely be buying the full game once I'm done with this demo. The only gripe I have is the need for an internet connection. Once I understand, but requiring one every time I open the game—and force closing if it's in the background for too long—is really frustrating and just limits where I can enjoy playing the game.

This is a great game and works great on my Galaxy S9+. It's one of the few games that I will buy at a $20 price. The touch controls are ok, but not easy to press certain things like "Items" in a fight. I am stretching the screen out to 18:9, but it should work better anyway. I feel it should have controller support since it was made on a portable console with a controller in mind. I would love to put this on a Shield TV if it was compatible...
