Monster Hunter X will ship in Japan on November 28. Nintendo is offering a New Nintendo 3DS LL (called XL in the West) bundle on the same day. The bundle will cost 26,000 yen (about US$209) and will include a copy of Monster Hunter X, as well as a touch pen, a 4GB memory card, and six AR cards.
The game will feature Shuryō Style (Hunting Style) movesets, which will allow players to tailor their style of hunting to their preference. The game also contains 14 weapon types, each of which will feature a Kariwaza (Hunting Art), which can be high-damage moves or effects that boost players' capabilities.
Monster Hunter Stories, the first Monster Hunter television anime, will premiere next year from the anime studio David Production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, The Book of Bantorra, Hyperdimension Neptunia). CAPCOM is also developing the Monster Hunter Stories Nintendo 3DS game for 2016. The game is the first RPG in the Monster Hunter franchise.
