Capcom has unveiled a cutesy Monster Hunter spin-off called Monster Hunter Stories, which focuses on those who ride those massive great beasties, rather than hunt them.

It's an RPG, though, so you'll still be doing your fair share of fighting. Only, now with a colourful art style, miniature monsters, and anime-like animations.

We don't know a whole lot about the game, which was revealed during Capcom's Monster Hunter Fest ‘15 Finals event other than it's coming to the Nintendo 3DS in 2016.

No word yet on a release outside of Japan.
