Aiden is the same character as Ace Cadet in Monster Hunter 4 and Excitable A-Lister in Monster Hunter: World before he became a full-fledged hunter.
Production was carried out by Pure Imagination Studios, which credits include several Lego animations.
The latest game of the Capcom franchise, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, was released last July 9, available on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
