Each Amiibo also features removable characters, allowing players to mix and match riders with different monsters. Each figure will be priced at 1,800 Yen including tax, which is around £14.

The first wave of Amiibo for Monster Hunter Stories was announced by Capcom back in May, and was confirmed to be releasing alongside the game in Japan on October 8 2016. The second wave of figures will hit stores a little later on December 8 2016. Some new screenshots and art from the game have also been released, as shared on Perfectly Nintendo.

It’s currently unknown whether or not the game will see a western release, but given the upcoming release of previous Japan-exclusive Monster Hunter Generationsit’s always a possibility.
