Monster Hunter Stories: all you need to know about DLC and Bonus Content, list of QR Codes

Monster Hunter Stories v2

If you’ve already played a Monster Hunter game before, then you already know that they always get tons of free DLC. Naturally, Monster Hunter Stories (released on September 8th in Europe and North America) is no exception, and if you’ve already checked our posts about the Japanese release, then you already know what to expect.

For those of you who haven’t, here’s the kind of content that will be disitributed for free to all players in Europe and North America, pretty soon:

  • tournament types and rules
  • trials that reward you with Monstie eggs and new gear
  • backgrounds for your Rider Card
  • egg pieces to form a special egg, to hatch equally special Monsties
  • special collaboration content (The Legend of Zelda for example)
  • new outfits for Navirou
  • and more…

Here’s how you can download additional content for Monster Hunter Stories:

  • Talk to the Connecticat in town


  • Select “DLC” from the game menu
