Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Unveils New Story and Gameplay Details

05/27/2021 03:23:23

A new adventure awaits you in this second installment of the turn-based RPG series set in the world of Monster Hunter! Become a Rider and form bonds with friendly monsters known as Monsties to fight alongside them as you take part in an epic story.


Today, a Monster Hunter Digital Event was held, and two new trailers for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and Monster Hunter Rise were revealed. Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Monster Hunter Rise director Yasunori Ichinose provided details on what’s in store for each title.

The latest trailer for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin provided fans with their first glimpse of the rage-inducing light that has suddenly begun infecting monsters around the world. The trailer also teased new story details about the protagonist’s connection with Razewing Ratha, the whereabouts of their grandfather, the legendary Monster Rider Red, and some returning characters from Monster Hunter Stories. While the connection between the rage rays, the global disappearance of Rathalos, and the birth of Razewing Ratha is unclear, players can rely upon the assistance of their Battle Buddy Avinia and her Monstie Frostfang who make their return from Monster Hunter Stories to help unravel the mystery.

In addition to providing more tantalizing story details for fans to chew on, the May Digital Event also provided a first look at how Monster Riders will collect and enhance their Monstie companions. In order to collect new Monstie eggs, players will have to plumb the depths of any Monster Dens they encounter out in the field. Monster Dens come in all shapes and sizes, with rarer dens containing elusive monster eggs which have the potential for hard-to-find genes. After returning to the Stables with new eggs in tow, players can hatch the eggs to discover what new Monstie they’ve acquired and use the Rite of Channeling feature to transfer unique genes from one Monstie to another. By combining genes of the same element or attack type, players can create a team of incredibly specialized Monsties or mix genes from different monsters to create a more versatile Monstie, capable of using skills of every attack type and element.

During the May Monster Hunter Digital Event, Monster Hunter Rise players received an early look at the monstrous new content that will be included in Ver. 3.0, the second free title update for the game. First up is the arrival of a new variant of Valstrax, the flagship monster from Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. This mysterious Elder Dragon is known by the name Crimson Glow Valstrax and can soar through the skies by changing the shape of its wings, allowing it to fly and attack from unusually high altitudes. Next, Apex Zinogre enters the fray with an electric “golden lighting” look and different attacks that might leave hunters in shock. Additionally, a new quest featuring an epic showdown with the Thunder Serpent Narwa and Wind Serpent Ibushi will provide players with a highly-anticipated new ending to the storyline. This new story ending, as well as the two new monsters, new quests, new weapon and armor options, new skills, and more, will be available to players for free when Ver. 3.0 releases later today.

For fashion-forward hunters, DLC Pack 3 will be available for purchase today and will include even more new voice options, gestures, hairstyles, sticker sets, background music, and more! In June, July, and August, players can look forward to expanding their Monster Hunter Rise experience even further with new collaboration quests, additional event quests, and other extra content that will be revealed soon.
