In this difficult task they will be helped by Lilia and Reverto – the characters of the original Monster Hunter Stories. At the same time, the player will be constantly pursued by a group of greedy hunters and riders who seek to catch Razorwing Ratu. Ultimately, the hero will have to make a difficult choice: save his friend or save the world.
