Capcom’s Monster Hunter Digital Event revealed new trailers, gameplay, and information for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. The latest trailer for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin offered new plot details ahead of the game’s July 9, 2021 release on Nintendo Switch and PC. The presentation included a first look at two returning characters from Monster Hunter Stories, a brief overview of the strategic overhaul to the turn-based combat system, and more.
In the latest trailer for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, fans were treated to more high-quality visuals of the incredible Monstie companions, competing factions, and epic story in the game.
After assuming the role of a young Monster Rider who can use a Kinship Stone to form strong bonds with monsters, players will encounter Lilia and Reverto, who will return from the original Monster Hunter Stories. The duo are on a mission to capture your companion Razewing Ratha before it can awaken its destructive power foretold in the prophecy of the Wings of Ruin. Hot on their heels are a group of Hunters and Riders who seek to capture Razewing Ratha for their own nefarious purposes.
More details on how these returning characters interact with the previously revealed cast, and the player’s journey to either save their friend or save the world will be revealed soon.
Preorders are now open for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin on both Nintendo Switch and PC, and include access to the Kamura maiden outfit for Ena. Players who link their save data from Monster Hunter Rise will receive the Rider layered armor for their hunter in that game, while Monstie Riders will be able to access the Kamura Garb layered armor in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
