Monster Hunter Stories: Three new amiibo announced + new screenshots


Everyone still likes amiibos right?

Back in May, when Capcom finally revealed new details about the game, it was announced that Monster Hunter Stories would get not one, but three amiibo figures. It was the first time ever a major third-party publisher created their own amiibo figures (something Nintendo has been open to from the beginning), but not the first third-party amiibo (that’s Shovel Knight, from Yacht Club Games!).

And today, Capcom announced that Monster Hunter Stories would get a second wave of amiibo figures, on December 8th. This time, the amiibo are based on the following characters:

Cheval riding a Rathian
Ayuria riding a Barioth (glacier)
Dan riding a Qurupeco

Just like the two amiibo for the protagonist, you can actually remove the character from the monster. That way, you can have any combination you want: Protagonist + Rathian, Ayuria + Rathalos, or even Dan + Barioth.

Here’s some pictures for this second wave of Monster Hunter Stories amiibo, which will cost 1 800 Yen (+ taxes) each:

There are a lot of screenshots at the link. Here are some of them.

Aside from Shovel Knight, this is the first third party amiibo line right?

I am not a MH fan but even I think those look cool. Might get one.

EDIT: What I ask is answered in the OP, oops.
Wow, they do look good.

Wow, the graphics also look good.

I'm not a fan of MH and clicked on this thread by mistake. First time seeing the game.


That Barioth one, damn.

Also those are some very elaborate amiibos for their relatively normal price.
Oh man. I want all of these. They look super well done and cool.

Except for the felyne one.... Why they would turn such cute critters into that monstrosity I'll never know.

Edit: Whoa! You can take the riders off and put them on other monsters too? That's super neat.


That Queupeco is going to be mine. And that bugger riding it is going in the bin.

God, I hope they bring loads of these out. I wanna get Kecha, Zinogre, Barroth, Lagombi, Narga, Blangonga, Arzuros, Nibelsnarf, goreMags...



Considering how big a release Capcom wants this to be, it'd be crazy if they didn't try to release it internationally, but that might get tricky with what would be a 3DS game in the later part of 2017.

Can't believe they remembered Barioth, too.

This has to mean it's a shoo-in for an international release, right? They wouldn't make amiibo like this for a single market.

I'm pretty sure I saw a Deviljho you could mount in a screenshot somewhere.

I need that.

Is Lagiacrus available as a mount?


Don't own a Nintendo console, but I love Monster Hunter.

So Ill be getting one or all of these.


Is it just me or are Amiibo's getting better? These and the Zelda BOTW ones look really awesome.

The references always look better than the final productions.

I wouldn't get too excited just yet (though they are getting better).


Line does look great. Ayuria w/ Barioth and the female rider from the first wave will be the ones I pick up for sure.
