Game developer and publisher Capcom has recently unveiled the opening cinematic for the Monster Hunter spin-off, dubbed Monster Hunter Stories.

If the lush CG animated opening cinematic got you pumped up, you don’t have to wait too long because Monster Hunter Stories launches on October 8. However, it’s going to launch in Japan. The Nintendo 3DS being region-locked, you may want to check if your handheld matches the region first.
