About This Game

Hatch, raise, and live alongside monsters as a Monster Rider in this fun-filled RPG set in the Monster Hunter universe.

◆ Story

What you've been entrusted with could bring hope or terror…

It is the night of a festival in Mahana, the central village of Hakolo Island.
Rathalos all around the world are vanishing.
You are the grandchild of Red, whose Monstie was Guardian Ratha, the revered protector of Hakolo Island. Upon setting out to gain experience as a Rider, you encounter Ena, a Wyverian girl who once knew Red. In order to protect the egg that Guardian Ratha has entrusted her with, you decide to leave the island together.
There are strange things happening everywhere. As you try to figure out what is causing these environmental abnormalities, the egg finally hatches.
A flightless Rathalos with small wings bursts out of the egg.

◆ Go Egg Collecting and Hatch Some Monstie Travel Companions

Form bonds with monsters as you embark on a Rider's journey!

The monsters you befriend during this enthralling adventure become your loyal Monsties.
There is a diverse range of monsters that inhabit every nook and cranny of this world.
Throughout your daring escapades, you can become pals with fearsome and unique monsters such as Brachydios, Seregios, Nargacuga, Tigrex, Zinogre, Kushala Daora, and Teostra!
Find more monsters along the way and add them to your party!


Eggs can be found in Monster Dens that randomly appear in the field.
There are even some rare dens that pop up infrequently where you can get your hands on elusive monster eggs and ones that contain hard-to-find genes.
Once you have made it safely out of the Monster Den, bring the egg to the Stables and hatch it to get a new Monstie for your journey!


These are special skills that you can perform while riding a Monstie. Depending on the Monstie, you can gain an ability such as dashing, flying, or swimming.
There are also other actions that allow you to search for items more effectively when out in the field.

◆ Monstie Growth

Line up genes to level up your Monsties!

After hatching Monsties, you can strengthen them through battles and the Rite of Channeling.
The Rite of Channeling is a ritual that allows you to transfer a gene from one Monstie to another.
By doing this, you can awaken a new ability in the Monstie receiving the gene, thereby creating your own original Monstie.
During the ritual, you can choose which slot you will place the gene in. This gives you the opportunity to enhance your Monsties by awakening new skills and abilities in interesting combinations.

◆ Turn-Based Battles

Master the three attack types to gain the upper hand during turn-based battles!

The improved turn-based combat system allows you to experience the excitement of the main Monster Hunter titles while engaging in epic, strategic fights with monsters you encounter during your adventure.
There are three attack types: Power, Speed, and Technical. By predicting your opponent's attack type and winning a Head-to-Head, you can inflict massive damage as well as greatly fill your Kinship Gauge.

Duke it out using the weapons and armor that the Monster Hunter series is known for!

Six weapon types from the familiar Monster Hunter series lineup are available in this game too. Master each of their unique characteristics and forge equipment to fit your individual playing style. Layered armor is also available, so you can hunt in style while wearing your favorite equipment.

◆ Multiplayer

In Multiplayer, you can connect with players from around the world! Team up in Co-Op Expedition Quests or face off against each other in Versus Battles.
If one of you engages a monster while out in the field, the other player can enter the fray and lend a helping hand.
Join forces with other Riders from all over the globe to search for rare eggs and take down fearsome monsters together.

◆ Downloadable Content


From hairstyles for your Rider to outfits for Ena and Navirou, there is a wide assortment of exciting downloadable content available.
You can purchase downloadable content individually or in packs. You can even get all of the available downloadable content at once for a bargain with the All-In Extra Content Pack!
Give the characters a fresh look and take your adventure to new heights!
