The RPG spin-off will receive a deluxe edition, which contains special armour and hairstyles for the player character and a set of cute Nergigante and Pukei-Pukei outfits for Navirou, your Felyne companion. Players who pre-order the game will also receive a special Kamura Maiden outfit for Ena, another ally to the player in Wings of Ruin.
A trio of Monster Hunter Stories 2 amiibo is also on the way based on Ena, Razewing Ratha and Tsukino. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a story-led RPG within the Monster Hunter universe, revealed by Capcom during a Nintendo Direct back in September 2020. We scored the first Monster hunter Stories an 8.9 upon its release in 2017, calling it “so much more than just a spin-off.”
The other focus of today’s Monster Hunter Digital Event is Monster Hunter Rise, which is set to launch on March 26, 2021. Here are 24 things you should know about the game ahead of its launch, and our final preview of the game, calling it “a game that prioritizes enjoyable action above all else.”
