Released on July 9th for Nintendo Switch and PC, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin has already made a strong impact. Along with UK physical sales being over twice that of its predecessor on Switch, it’s set a new record for peak concurrent users of Japanese Role-Playing Games on Steam. According to SteamDB, its peak is 33,464 players, with the previous record being held by Persona 4 Golden with 29,984 players.

As a sequel, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin focuses on Red’s descendant who’s tasked with taking care of Razewing Ratha. The Monstie is considered to bring ruin to the world and it’s the player’s job to protect and raise it. Along the way, they’ll meet various allies, gather other Monsties to fight with them and explore mysteries like the sudden disappearance of Rathalos.
