Monster Hunter Stories is still un-dated for the West, but Capcom is eagerly promoting the RPG ahead of its October release in Japan. It's a colourful and alternative take on the series, shifting the focus to rearing monsters and teaming up with them in turn-based battles, as opposed to attacking them with enormous swords.

It looks intriguing, in any case, and Capcom continues to upload plenty of videos; some recent arrivals are excerpts from the Capcom TV stream, so it's in Japanese and delightfully quirky. In any case, there's a lot of footage to enjoy.

The focus for Capcom in the West, right now, is Monster Hunter Generations, but hopefully Stories will make its way out of Japan eventually.
