During the E3 event this year, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin got yet another trailer released ahead of its game release on 9th July 2021. It showed off a lot of new gameplay, including elder dragons Teostra and Kushala Daora.
We don’t know how the story is gonna progress yet, but we do know it will take place on Hakolo Island, a place where all of the Rathalos creatures have suddenly started disappearing.
You’ll be taking on the role of a young adventurer who is the descendant of a legendary Rider called “Red.” When embarking on your journey to learn more about what it takes to be a true Rider, you encounter a mysterious Wyverian girl called Ena, who previously knew your grandfather and has been entrusted with a rare Rathalos egg.
While investigating the environmental abnormalities that have shook the island, the egg hatches – revealing a flightless Rathalos with unique markings and black wings. What story will unfold with this little hatchling?
In terms of gameplay, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is slightly different from its popular counterpart, World, featureing turn-based strategic combat—much like other popular game franchises such as Final Fantasy and Tales of Vesperia.
So far, Capcom released that there will be 25 “monsties” in the game from their official site, but we might be seeing more when the game releases. Some monsters making an appearance from World, Iceborne and previous entries in the hugely popular franchise include Diablos, Barioth, Anjanath, Nergigante and Rathian.
As part of the story, you’ll come across mysterious pits that emit bright beams of light from the ground, and within these pits are “Rage-Rayed Monsters”—which are basically beasts that have become overly aggressive to anyone or anything they come into contact with. They also have beaming red eyes and possess unruly strength when affected by the Rage Rays, so be on your guard.
