Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin trailer 3 Lilia and Reverto new returning characters story gameplay details

With today’s Monster Hunter Digital Event, Capcom revealed trailer 3 for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, showcasing new and returning characters. Capcom revealed separate gameplay details as well. Chiefly, the trailer reveals that Lilia and Reverto are returning from the original game in the series for Monster Hunter Stories 2. However, they might complicate your life, because you are a Monster Rider who can use a Kinship Stone to forge powerful bonds with monsters, including a Razewing Ratha prophesized to bring doom. Lilia and Reverto want to capture the Razewing Ratha “before it can awaken its destructive power.” Meanwhile, a group of Hunters and Riders also want your monster buddy for apparently evil reasons.

As far as new gameplay details for Monster Hunter Stories 2, the Power, Speed, and Technical attack types return from the first game. However, “aspiring Monster Riders must also master using the correct weapon type, element, and skills to overcome increasingly imposing threats.” In addition to strategically countering monsters in battle, you can also target and “break” specific body parts. Additionally, you can join forces with a Monstie for Double Attacks or also add in other Battle Buddy characters for super powerful Kinship Attacks.

Does Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin trailer 3 get you even more hyped for the game, bringing back Lilia and Reverto and amping up the gameplay? It launches on Nintendo Switch and PC on July 9, 2021, with a collector’s edition available.
