Monster Hunter Stories+ Launches on Apple Arcade with Enhanced Presentation and Auto-Save Feature

Capcom has released Monster Hunter Stories+  on Apple Arcade, an enhanced port of the original Monster Hunter Stories released on 3DS. While this newer release is identical to the initial 3DS version regarding narrative, some noteworthy improvements are made to differentiate this version, even if just slightly.

Firstly, the graphics are higher resolution and far more pleasing to the eye than the 3DS release. The UI has also been considerably enhanced to fit these new platforms’ confines better. Lastly, there is a brand new auto-save functionality that will assuredly act as a reliable comfort in case mishaps occur.

However, certain content usable on the 3DS version is not available on this Apple Arcade launch, such as amiibo and Streetpass functionality and content from the Japanese version 1.2 update onward.

You can view the store page for Monster Hunter Stories+ and more details regarding its release on Apple’s App Store page.
