Monster Hunter Stories 2 Wings of Ruin: Release Date, Trailer, Gameplay, Platforms and Everything You Need To Know


Monster Hunter Stories 2, Capcom's second entry in the RPG-centric spinoff of the main action franchise, is due out in 2021.


Now, we know more details surrounding the title, and players are amped for the release date!

Here's all we know. 


Release Date

For those who do not know, or have not seen the release date of the new Monster Hunter spin-off title. Players can jump into the action on July 9th, 2021!



The game will only be released on PC and Nintendo Switch come July!



Check out the trailer for the game, which was originally showcased during the Monster Hunter Digital Event not too long ago!




Towards the end of February, there were some notable interviews published which shed some light on new information surrounding the title. 


Speaking to Famitsu, Tsujimoto noted that the battle system will be elevated, and suggested that players should look forward to an upcoming announcement when pressed about PvP.

In an interview with Game Watch Impress, he noted that the first game had an impressive reception from fans and that players have wanted a sequel for some time, while also noting that the second game would skew less towards younger players and more towards a broader appeal.

As you can imagine, there are more monsters to recruit this time around, while also teasing crossover content for players also picking up Monster Hunter: Rise, which was announced in the same Nintendo Direct.

Finally, when speaking to 4Gamer, it was revealed that Monster Hunter Stories 2 will offer a self-contained narrative, meaning players don't have to be familiar with the first game's story, although Tsujimoto was coy on whether characters from the first game would return.

Be sure to let us know if you are looking forward to the release of this title within the Monster Hunter series!
