Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will be coming to Nintendo Switch and (newly announced) to PC on 9th July 2021, Capcom has confirmed. The game will be available physically and digitally for Switch, and digitally-only on PC via Steam.
In addition to setting the release date, Capcom also teased some new cooperative multiplayer quests that will be available in the game. More information on the story and multiplayer content will be revealed at a later date.
The new trailer for the game reveals some of the game’s story. You take the role of a young Monster Rider who can use a Kinship Stone to bond with the Razewing Rathalos, combining your abilities as you go on your adventure together. There will also be the return fo the Felyne hero Navirou.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin was announced in September 2020 alongside Monster Hunter Rise, the Nintendo Switch exclusive entry in the main Monster Hunter series. Wings of Ruin follows on from the first Stories spin-off game with its RPG gameplay, which launched for Nintendo 3DS in 2017.
A Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Deluxe Edition was also announced, including Razewing layered armor sets and a Nergigante-inspired hairstyle for players, the Kuan Coat outfit for your Wyverian companion Ena, two new outfits for Navirou, and two sticker sets. Those who pre-order the game on either platform will get the Kamura maiden outfit for Ena, while Switch players will get three sets of layered armour and daily bonuses for tapping the new Ena, Razewing Ratha and Tsukino amiibo figures. As an interesting bonus for those who pick up Monster Hunter Rise later this month and have some save data on their Switch, you will unlock the Kamura Garb layered armour for your character.
This latest news about Monster Hunter Stories 2 was a part of a Capcom showcase for their two upcoming Monster Hunter games. An updated and expanded demo for Monster Hunter Rise will be available later this week, as well as the promise of post-launch content and monsters, starting with Chameleos in late April.
