The original Monster Hunter Stories is coming to Nintendo Switch (and PS4 & PC, too)

Monster Hunter Stories, the more kid-friendly take on the classic series, is making the leap from 3DS to Nintendo Switch in an upcoming remaster.

With the 3DS now functionally dead due to the eShop being actually dead, there are some games that will forever remain locked to the platform – not the original Monster Hunter Stories, though, as the spin-off game just received word of a remaster during today’s Nintendo Direct. A sequel to the game actually released on the Switch back in 2022, but this marks the first time the 3DS classic will be on modern platforms (PlayStation fans will be happy to hear it’s coming to PS4, too, and you’ll be able to pick it up on PC as well).

It’s not just a simple port though, as the game will feature full voice acting for the first time, as well as new HD visuals, a museum mode that features tonnes of art, and in a good bit of news for those of us over in the West, some content that was only available in the Japanese release of the game.
