Capcom is considerably ramping up the Monster Hunter series this year.
Not only do we have Rise, which is sure to sell boat loads, they’re poised to launch Monster Hunter Stories 2 on both PC and Switch this July. It’s a smart move, going with such a large install base out of the gate! It’s also getting three amiibo and some form of connectivity with Rise. In other words, there’s a lot of little tendrils involved to get you to buy it.
It’s also going to be a bit of a big game, in terms of raw file size. According to the AU Nintendo storefront, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is 14.6GB. Compared directly to Monster Hunter Rise, which is 6.6GB (somehow), it feels even bigger. More than twice as big, actually!
The crazy thing is we still don’t know a lot about the game. It’s possible that Capcom is going to try and get the message out at events, much like they’ve been doing so far with “Monster Hunter Direct” style streams.
