Having previously been revealed only for the Nintendo Switch, Capcom has confirmed that a PC release for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is part of the release plan. In fact, the Pokémon-like role-playing adventure will be hitting Steam day and date as the Switch release.
Fans of Capcom’s monster-slaying franchise can prepare themselves for a new adventure come July 9, 2021. However, instead of the all-action experience that many have come to know and love like the upcoming Monster Hunter Rise, this particular spin-off is a turn-based experience.
The original Monster Hunter Stories first came out in 2017 for the Nintendo 3DS, changing up the formula to some degree of success.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin places more emphasis on capturing, training, and fighting alongside your chosen monsters. Suffice to say, it is clear where that inspiration has come from.
The premise of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin revolves around the disappearance of the fearsome Rathalos. Together with the dangerous Razewing Ratha, it is up to you to figure out the mystery. Players familiar with the franchise will see plenty of familiar faces.
It will not be just a single-player experience, however, as Capcom has stated Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will come with co-op multiplayer quests that will require your fellow PC or Switch friends’ help.
The Steam page for the game has not gone live just yet, and there is still no word on the pricing. However, for the invested fan, there will be a Deluxe Edition of the game that contains some worthwhile goodies.
A selection of new cosmetic armor sets will ensure your characters look the part when Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin arrives on PC and Nintendo Switch this July 9.
