The sequel finds the player taking the role of a Rider who is tasked with travelling around a stylised world, similar to Pokémon, in search of tameable monsters to befriend and fight alongside them in the story.
In NME’s review of Monster Hunter Stories 2, Matt Kamen said the game is, “Ultimately a Monster Hunter game for people who don’t like Monster Hunter, Wings of Ruin offers enough spectacle to keep players engaged before surprising them with unexpected depth in combat and customisation.”
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is also expected to receive some brand new post-launch content. Capcom revealed a roadmap detailing five title updates to be released in July, August, September and October.
Players can expect from in the near future, including new ‘Monsties’, co-operative quests and more.
