Monster Hunter Stories

Yesterday, some more DLC for Monster Hunter Stories went live. This time around, the new content is for a collaboration with Puzzle & Dragons X (following the Monster Hunter Stories’s collaboration content in that game). There’s several things for players to download, such as:

  • special tournament: PazuDora X Cup. If you manage to win, you will get some special Otomon eggs. The eggs are for Kurenai Goukami, a special monster from Puzzle & Dragons X. Its Special Attack is called Inferno Blast, and its Kizuna Move is Goukami Impact;
  • special background for your Rider Card;
  • special titles.

Here’s some pictures for that DLC:
