And boy, does it look absolutely gorgeous. I'd go even as far as saying that it's the most spectacular 3DS title I've ever seen thanks to that cell-shaded look. It may offend the hardcore players of Monster Hunter but the goal of Stories is to expand the reach of the series.

It's coming out October 8 in Japan.
