Capcom is certainly riding the wave of Monster Hunter’s current explosion in popularity.

Following the stellar critical and commercial success of Monster Hunter World a couple of years back and much more recently, Monster Hunter Rise on the Nintendo Switch, we’re on the verge of receiving a sequel to the spin-off series – Monster Hunter Stories.

The follow-up, titled Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, was revealed back in September last year, during a Nintendo Direct Partner Presentation and is now just days away.

Here are all the details you need to know about Monster Hunter Stories 2, including the release date and time.
