To the surprise of absolutely no-one familiar with Monster Hunter’s popularity in Japan, the lighter anime-oriented Stories spin-off has been a smash hit in the region. Now it’s naturally making an appearance at the Monster Hunter Summit 2017 event, where Japanese players can battle their monsters in a competition held across 7 different locations.

Most noteworthy, however, are two of the prizes – gold and silver Monster Hunter Stories amiibo! Specifically, those who get second place receive a silver Rider amiibo, whereas those who take the top spot get one painted gold.

You can see the amiibo close-up in the video below:

Needless to say it’ll be very tricky for collector’s to get their hands on these figures!

Monster Hunter Stories has yet to be announced for release in the west, but we’ll be sure to let you know if and when that changes!
