Apple Arcade welcomes Monster Hunter Stories and more games

In the coming months, Apple will be bringing MasterChef: Let’s Cook! to the Arcade.

On the other hand, Monster Hunter Stories is developed CAPCOM. It is a highly-rated role-playing game, where players enter a world filled with large monsters that roam the land, and people everywhere make a living hunting them. But there's a remote village that follows a different set of customs called the Monster Riders, who don't hunt but instead form bonds with monsters. The monsters that form kinships with Riders, known as "Monsties," possess incredible powers. Interested readers can install it from Apple App Store (here).
