What Is Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin?
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a followup to the 2017 original game for Nintendo 3DS. Instead of being an action-RPG like the mainline entries of the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunters Stories 2 is a story-driven turn-based RPG.
In it, you play as a hero with big shoes to fill, because he’s the grandson of a famous Rider named Red. The story kicks off when you meet a Wyverian girl named Ena who has a Rathalos egg that might hatch into a helpful beast, or it might hatch into a legendary monster that could cause massive amounts of destruction. Along the way, you’ll also team up with friendly creatures called Monsties to fight against enemies.
We don’t know a whole lot about the game yet, but we do know it will let you team up with friends for co-op multiplayer quests. So that’s cool, too.
