    The Monster Hunter series has reached over 230 countries and regions, and Capcom seeks to expand its user base further. The company aims to advance its industry-leading game development capabilities and create even more highly entertaining Monster Hunter games.

    The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in beautiful natural environments. Beginning with the first title in 2004, the series established a new genre in which players cooperate to hunt ferocious monsters with their friends and has since grown into a global phenomenon.

    Moreover, Capcom is also celebrating the franchise’s anniversary by having the Monster Hunter Stories games release on new platforms.  On June 14, Monster Hunter Stories hits Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. Its sequel, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, joins PlayStation 4 the same day. Lastly, in December of last year Capcom revealed Monster Hunter Wilds, garnering broad attention with the announcement that the latest title in the series is scheduled for release in 2025.
