They are the Monster Riders, a people who don't hunt but instead form bonds with monsters. Unlike hunters, they raise and live in harmony with monsters, forming inseparable bonds with them using mysterious artifacts known as Kinship Stones. The monsters that form kinships with Riders, known as "Monsties," possess incredible powers. By becoming a Rider, you too can befriend countless Monsties, riding them as you explore a vast, exciting world. Join the adventure and "Ride On!" • Game Features - Recruit countless Monsties! Monsties, and the bonds you form with them, are the backbone of your adventure. Explore vast environments and dungeons to find monster dens, and bring back the eggs you find to hatch new Monsties! - Fight with your Monsties in Network Battles! Take your hero and the Monsties you've raised into battles with other Riders! Build a team of your favorites to challenge other players. - New features for the smartphone version! New improvements include beautiful high-resolution graphics, improved user interface, and a new auto-save feature! • 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!

If you like JRPG and played monster hunter series this game is for you without doubts. The story is enjoyable and the graphics are remastered from the 3DS version of this game. It’s price is incredible good for what’s offering. This is a full console game experience in your phone or iPad leaving all those usual mobile games eating dust, I recommend it! About the bass reviews, I can’t see why they so mad... I didn’t have any problems at all. This should have all those 1 stars deleted! XD Best experience ever on mobile. Thanks CAPCOM.
The save files won't load on the other device using 'backup' function. Please help.
Anybody that loves Monster Hunter or RPGs should definitely give this game a try. Has a very visual world and the battle system is fun. Who doesn’t love dinosaurs?
I was able to load up the game on my 12 pro to found out that there is no sound at all from the game. I got the game at $5 compared to the original price tag of $20 so not as dissatisfied as I would be if I payed full price for it. Hopefully they can update the game with a fix soon; not the end of the world for me but might be a deal breaker for some.
If people want to use a controller the option should be added. If people don’t care great, let those who do want it have it. Having said, pros like adding high resolution to support these high resolution displays is a nice plus. It’s allows those beautiful colors to really pop. I would rate this game a 4 or 5 star for sure with all the other things this game offers. The ability to see monster info on each creature are the little things I like. Even without a controller the game is easy to control. Not as enjoyable as on my N3DS XL I originally played this in. But the higher resolution on the way better display is a plus in this direction. I can’t recall at the moment but with this being on mobile I hope the ability to save from the settings is available. If you can only save at certain locations or certain times that is a major con. When I get more time to play I’ll have to check on this. Hopefully this game gets the updates and support it deserves.
Wow, I’m surprised that an iOS game is up to standard with handheld games. One of the reason why I never enjoyed games on mobile phone is the touch screen. Some genres are meant to be play with a physical controller, but capcom really optimized this game for iOS. Fighting, shooting and action RPG games are more enjoyable with physical controller usually on console or handheld. Since this is a turn base RPG I thought maybe the developers could have design the game with a floating virtual controller. After playing it for about 1 hour, I was right! Capcom did an excellent job on the touch screen controller! Left side of the screen is where you can swipe your finger for movement and right side has the fixed virtual buttons to perform various actions. Also, when your character is close by an object, an action icon appear on top of it, which is more intuitive for gamers to touch it. The graphics are amazing even on an older iPhone XR LCD screen. The music and sound effects are top notch. The bread and butter of this game is the game play and it involves some strategies to defeat enemies. The character designs and environments are beautiful. If you like the anime style or cell shaded graphics, you will appreciate the artwork in this game. I’m a big fan of monster hunter and own many of the series. This MH stories is turn base as opposed to action base. This is probably one of my top favorites in the franchise. Besides MH, I enjoyed other quality games by capcom. Street fighter and mega man are games I’ve been playing since I was a kid. $20 game is worth it as there’s no micro transactions or ads!! This is another reason why I enjoyed this game on a mobile phone. Be sure to hide the home bar when playing this game as it’s more enjoyable and enhanced your gaming viewing.
STOP MAKING DEVILJHOS INVADE MY FIGHT!!!!!!! This game has a massive variety of monsters and 2 new ones ( Versa pietru and Makili pietru) my problems though are that lunastra is not in the game we have teostra why not lunastra? I remember hearing that teostra and kushala daora where coming as monsties but it didn’t happen. I am very very angry that it can’t be in English to. I especially like the design of silver ratholos. This is a great game so keep updating
Now. This is a great game. But i think you might consider lowering the price. It’s beautiful wonderfully made and there was alot of care put into it. My only real problem would be the 20$s it still is pretty worth 20$ but i would price it at 7$ this game has an amazing story and i would recommend it to anyone who wants a good rpg adventure experience. Theres even more stuff to do after you complete the amazing storyline! This game has a special place in my heart and always will. Thank you for bringing this game to the appstore
I really enjoy the game and I’m a fan of the franchise. I’m a security guard so I’ve been playing this allot at work. I’ve gotten pretty far into the game but once in awhile in battle the game would just crash and I loose allot of progress. I have a iPhone 11 so it’s not too out of date and I think this is the games fault not my phones. These crashes are really turning me off from the game.
