Unlike the mainline games in the Monster Hunter franchise, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin has you playing as a “Rider.” In this sequel to the spinoff series, you’ll find new creatures to join your party. Known as “Monsties,” these “monster besties” will be your companions throughout your journey. You’ll discover their eggs, pass on their genes, use their skills to explore the world, and gain their kinship as you eliminate foes.
Mind you, it’s a fairly long game. A lengthy grind is also a given since you can choose to play with friends via co-op or match up against other players in PvP. In any case, here’s our Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin guides and features hub to help you out.
