CAPCOM announced this morning that Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, released just over ten days ago on PC and Nintendo Switch, has already surpassed a million units between physical shipments and digital sales.
The Monster Hunter series continues to do extremely well for CAPCOM. Monster Hunter World became by far the best-selling game from the legendary Japanese publisher, and Monster Hunter Rise also had a stellar debut on Nintendo Switch this year, selling over 7 million copies in just two months. The game is also expected to hit PC in early 2022, which is sure to further boost game sales.
Now even the spin-off series seems to be taking off with Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. In his review, Kai rated the game an eight out of ten.
The Monster Hunter Stories spin-off series personally feels like the kind of title you buy for a little brother who is fascinated by watching grandiose hunts for older dragons and wants to join the adventure. It’s been streamlined to the basics in a way that appeals to both JRPG and Monster Hunter learners, while keeping the core aspects in a meaningful way. It might not be a good replacement for a regular Monster Hunter title, but it definitely stands on its own as a unique and rewarding challenge.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is aimed at a younger or perhaps less experienced player base and provides a great deal of hunting pleasure while cutting the fat away.
