STORY

Monster Riders, those who forge bonds with monsters...

Unlike Hunters, Riders raise monsters and live together with them.

Hunters make a living hunting monsters,
while Riders raise and train them.

The bonds between Riders and Monsties reveal a new side to the world.

A new adventure to build kinship starts here.
