When turn-based RPG spin-off Monster Hunter Stories' Japanese release date was announced earlier this year Capcom revealed that it would release three Amiibo alongside the game's 8th October homeland launch. Now it's revealed an additional wave of three Amiibo coming on 8th December.

Monster Hunter Stories gets Japan release date, new Amiibos
