Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Trailer Introduces New Companions and Turn-Based Combat

Capcom released a new trailer for their monster hunting adventure Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin coming to Nintendo Switch and PC-via Steam on July 9, 2021.

The trailer highlights new monster companions that will join players on their adventure as well as some story scenes. Players will assume the role of a Monster Ride who can use a Kinship Stone to form strong bonds with monsters. During the adventure, players will encounter Lilia and Reverto, who will return from the original Monster Hunter Stories. The duo are on a mission to capture your companion Razewing Ratha before it can awaken its destructive power foretold in the prophecy of the Wings of Ruin.

Hot on their heels are a group of Hunters and Riders who seek to capture Razewing Ratha for their own nefarious purposes. More details on how these returning characters interact with the previously revealed cast, and the player’s journey to either save their friend or save the world will be revealed soon.

Further, we got a look at the game’s turn-based combat. While the three attack types of Power, Speed, and Technical return from Monster Hunter Stories, aspiring Monster Riders must also master using the correct weapon type, element, and skills to overcome increasingly imposing threats.

By learning the fighting style of individual monsters, players can counter incoming attacks by selecting the correct attack type. Additionally, they can stop enemy monsters in their tracks by targeting and breaking specific body parts, as well as team up with their Monstie to perform powerful Double Attacks. Riders can also join forces with their Monsties and other Battle Buddy characters to unleash devastating Kinship Attacks that can change the flow of battle.
