As part of a recent digital event, Capcom has revealed that Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will launch for Nintendo Switch and PC on July 9, 2021.
The game was originally revealed last year, alongside the announcement of the Switch exclusive Monster Hunter Rise. While Rise will be a more traditional action RPG Monster Hunter game, Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is something a bit different. Instead, it will focus on collecting monsters and will include a traditional turn-based combat system similar to Pokémon — much like the mechanics introduced with the original Monster Hunter Stories game for Nintendo 3DS.
You can take a look at the digital event from Capcom below!

In Monster Hunter Stories 2, players will be able to partake in cooperative quests, allowing up to two party members to battle monsters online. In addition to that, Capcom also announced that Monster Hunter Rise players will gain access to a special Kamura Garb armor set in Stories 2 (as long as you have a save file for Rise on your system).

It's a great time to be a Monster Hunter fan, as we've got two new games on the horizon like Rise and Stories 2, while Capcom is undoubtedly tinkering away at a console follow up to World. There's also a new Monster Hunter Rise Nintendo Switch console to look forward to as well, which is planned to release day and date with the game this month.
