Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin launched just 11 days ago as of writing, and in that short time it’s already shipped a whopping number of copies – over a million, according to developer and publisher Capcom.
“The numbers are in!” the studio has posted on the turn-based, critter-collectin’ RPG game’s Twitter channel. “Monster Hunter Stories 2 has shipped over one million units worldwide! Thank you, new Riders, for embarking on this adventure with us!” That’s a pretty enormous number so far and, if sales continue at that pace, we could see it start rising up Capcom’s list of its all-time best-selling games soon.
In case you’re new to the game, Monster Hunter Stories 2 – a spin-off of the enormously successful main Monster Hunter series and its latest PC release – is all about becoming a Rider who has to travel a painterly world and track down ‘monsties’ to battle alongside. In our Monster Hunter Stories 2 review, Jordan scored it a very healthy eight out of ten, summarising that “while the repetitiveness of its turn-based battle system can become frustrating, Monster Hunter Stories 2 is more than a novel twist on the main series’ core components.”
