Monster Hunter Stories 2: watch the opening cinematic right here

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin release date July 9 Nintendo Switch PC preorder bonus Deluxe Edition Capcom

Monster Hunter Stories 2 is all set to debut this summer, with a demo just two days away. If you cannot handle any degree of waiting, however, then you can seek some temporary relief by watching the game’s opening cinematic. Capcom just posted the video today, and you can watch the game’s entire seven-minute start directly below. Give it a look.

I think that the video sets the mood for Monster Hunter Stories 2 pretty well. At seven minutes long, the video covers a lot of ground, shows off a lot of monsters, and even hints at the earliest pieces of the game’s narrative. It does exactly what an opening cinematic should do: gets me all ready to see the game in action for myself as soon as possible. I cannot wait to give this one a try soon. The game looks great with its long list of features, and the promise of another turn-based RPG in the Monster Hunter universe sounds just wonderful.

Are you planning on picking up Monster Hunter Stories 2? How does the game look so far? Does the opening cinematic set the right mood for you to settle in and put together a fearsome team of monsters? Let us know everything that you’re thinking in the comments below.
