With reviews going live for Capcom’s Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, the developer has sought to clarify how much storage space is needed on the Nintendo Switch. If you purchased the physical version, then no downloads or installations are needed to start playing. Digital owners will need 13.5 GB of free space though.
There will also be a day one patch that requires 500 MB of free space on top of this. Patch notes for the same should be coming tomorrow so expect more details on bug fixes and improvements. A major update is set for July 15th and adds the first free Monstie, the Palamute from Monster Hunter Rise, to the game. Additional Monsties like Dreadking Rathalos, Soulseer Mizutsune, Elderfrost Gammoth and much more are also planned for the coming months.
▶️ The physical version does NOT require any downloads or installation to start playing.
▶️ The digital version requires 13.5GB of free space.
▶️ A Day-1 Patch requires 0.5GB of free space.
Apologies for any confusion.
