Monster Hunter Riders – Capcom announce new mobile RPG for Japan market

I have lost count of how many mobile games were launched by Capcom using the Monster Hunter IP, but a new one was just recently announced for the Japan market. Titled Monster Hunter Riders, the game takes place in a time where humans and monsters coexisted peacefully. This was possible after a group of 10 knights defeated an evil dragon hundreds of years ago. As usual, an evil and dark force is now creeping its claws to the continent…

If you have watched the previous Monster Hunter anime, Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On, you would have an inkling on the gimmick which Monster Hunter Riders is using. Or if you have played Monster Hunter Stories on mobile. A key gameplay feature of Monster Hunter Riders being touted is “infinite customizations by combining different elements possessed by the riders and monsters.” Defeat the mysterious Black Riders and restore the peace!
