The games are multiplayer versions, though they can be played as a single-player too.

The Monster Hunter series became Capcom’s second highest-selling series by December 2018, following the Resident Evil game. The Monster Hunter franchise also has an anime based on the spin-off game ‘Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Airou Village,’ ‘Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On,’ a manga Monster Hunter Orage, and a book named ‘Monster Hunter Episode.’
