The official Japanese Monster Hunter Stories limited edition game is available for pre-order via the eCapcom store now. For around 8,300 yen (or roughly $80 USD) the limited edition copy of the game will come bundled with a bunch of Monster Hunter Stories related goodies.
The limited edition version of the game will include a physical copy of the game, a 24 page color art booklet, a copy of the game’s soundtrack, A Kizuna Stone necklace, and a large box that will hold all of those items together.
The art booklet will include more than just images of the new title; it will feature interviews and details about the planning process that went into developing the game as well. The game’s soundtrack will come housed in a Monster Hunter Stories themed CD case and will include all of the game’s music from start to finish. If that wasn’t enough, the limited edition will also come with a Kizuna Stone necklace, a replica of the stone from the game, which is used to connect riders to their monsters. According to item’s description, the rope of the necklace will be made of leather and the pendant will be made of zinc alloy.
Fans can also purchase a Monster Hunter Stories themed diorama to accompany the previously announced amiibo for the game. The diorama featured a transparent green plastic base which will hold all of the diorama pieces together.
Unlike the limited edition copy of the game that can be pre-ordered now, there’s no word on where or when you can pre-order the amiibo diorama. Furthermore, Japan is currently the only territory to be seeing a Monster Hunters Stories release. If that changes, you can expect to hear about it from Nintendo Inquirer as soon as we get wind of a release!
