Monster Hunter Stories is a role-playing video game developed by Marvelous and published by Capcom. It is a spin-off title set within the Monster Hunter series. Unlike any of the previous titles in the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter Stories lets players take on the role of a Rider instead of a Hunter, and are able to battle in an role-playing turn-based system.

Summary

Monster Hunter Stories doesn’t seem to have major graphical or audio issues on Citra in most areas. However, the battle scenes and cutscenes are completely blurry due to gas rendering issue. And because the game renders in stereoscopic 3D, you will experience another kind of blurriness in all 3D scenes, which is like ghosting.

The game speed is unacceptably low when rendering 3D scenes, even on powerful hardware. This is partly because the game forces 3DS to render in stereoscopic 3D.

Fix the performance and stereoscopic 3D ghosting: 1. Emulation > Configure > Graphics 2. Switch on Stereoscopic 3D option ON and set it at least to 1% 3. Start game 4. Turn off Stereoscopic 3D option.

It should run with a little better performance.
