Monster Hunter Stories ‘Riria Explains #4: Transmission Ritual and Multiplayer Battles’ video

The final in Capcom's series of "Riria Explains" videos.

Monster Hunter Stories

Capcom has released the fourth and final video in its series of Monster Hunter Stories “Riria Explains” trailers, this time introducing “Transmission Ritual” and multiplayer battles.

A Transmission Ritual is a special ritual in which the “Kizuna Gene” possessed by various Otomon is inherited by a base Otomon. This enables players to awaken the abilities and attributes ‘asleep’ in the base Otomon (fire, water, lightning, ice, etc.). For example, the ceremony can be used to awaken the fire attribute within a Lagombi. As for multiplayer, you can battle against other players locally or via the Internet, and chat with them using stamps. You can also customize your own Rider Card to be traded with other players through StreetPass.

Monster Hunter Stories is due out for 3DS in Japan this Saturday, October 8. If you missed it, the previous three Riria Explains detailed how to catch an Otomon, the battle system, and Otomon abilities.
