CAPCOM has finally given us a firm release date for Monster Hunter Riders, its latest addition to the Monster Hunter series, which was originally scheduled to land on Android and iOS platforms in winter. Instead, we will be seeing the game arrive on 19 February 2020.
As mentioned earlier, Monster Hunter Riders is a mobile game based on its namesake franchise, Monster Hunter. In the game, players no longer play the role of a hunter hunting monsters, but instead, coexist with the monsters and takes on the role of a rider and partner. The story line entails the peace of their world being threatened. Players will go on an adventure to find out who or what is causing the peace to destabilize. In addition, they must fight alongside their partner monsters against a myriad of opponents.
Since our last update, the official Twitter handle for the game has posted a number of teaser videos showcasing the skills of the monsters, so here are some of them.
