Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a lot different from the usual monster-hunting action games, but Capcom reports that the new episode is still pretty cool. The game’s sales have crossed the million dreams mark.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is the second episode that showcases the story of giant monster hunters (and monster riders) in a JRPG rather than action-oriented gameplay. Capcom actually tried out such a story-oriented branch once in 2016, and the first part released for 3DS was followed by a sequel in July of this year, which was said to not have been bad at the box office at all.
Capcom reports that the game has sold more than 1 million copies on PC and Nintendo Switches, including both boxed and digital sales. So Monster Hunter Stories 2 also enriches the franchise’s success with an easy spin-off – as of March 31, 2021, over 72 million copies of the series’ titles have been collected so far. No wonder, then, that after a somewhat disappointing movie adaptation, Monster Hunter will soon pay for it on TV screens, too. Netflix is already making its own animated TV series, which we will have to look for under the subtitle Legends of the Guild – here’s the first trailer.
