Monster Hunter Stories, the super cute, super exciting looking spin off from the main Monster Hunter games, has finally got a Western release date.

The game is set to land in Europe and North America on September 9th. That's barely even a month away. Maybe it's time to start saving my pennies and get myself another 3DS.

If you haven't heard of the game before, it's a fully-fledged turn based RPG that sees you adventuring through the Monster Hunter world. And you can ride on some of the monsters. Just let that sink in.

We got a hands-on with the game a couple of years back at the Tokyo Game Show, and you can check out our video preview underneath this paragraph.
