Capcom’s Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is out next month but will have a demo on the Nintendo Switch on June 25th. To hype up the same, it’s released the opening cinematic for the RPG, which sets up events driving the main plot. Check it out below.
The opening sees Ena, a Wyverian hiding from some Hunters and seemingly caring for an adult Rathalos. The latter entrusts her with an egg and then comes under attack, leading to its escape. A whole bunch of Rathalos can then be seen leaving the island. The protagonist, a descendant of Red from the first game, witnesses this and it’s clear that bad stuff is going down.
Eventually, the egg hatches into Razewing Ratha, a flightless Rathalos with black wings that will seemingly bring about the end of the world. As for how the protagonist meets and becomes its Rider, you’ll need to play the demo when it goes live. All progress will transfer over to the full game so it’s well worth trying out. There’s only one save slot in the demo though with the max level being 11.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is out on July 9th for Nintendo Switch and PC. For more in-depth gameplay, head here.
