If you’re thinking of picking up or have just started playing Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, you might be wondering how long it takes to complete it.
Sequel to the hit RPG released on Nintendo 3DS back in 2017, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin offers a different kind of Monster Hunter action. Instead of purely hunting monsters down to kill them, you’ll be working alongside many of them.
By finding and hatching eggs you’re able to add a variety of monsties to your collection, which you’ll then be able to ride and fight alongside in battle. Speaking of battles – they’re turn-based in this iteration, in case you didn’t know. Though while the gameplay might be rather different to a standard Monster Hunter game, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin still takes quite a while to beat.
Reports from those who have already completed the main story of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin state that it took them about 40-50 hours, which is quite a bit longer than the first game in the series. They weren’t taking their time either, being against the deadline of a review embargo. So, if you pick up the game, you can expect the main story to take you over 50 hours to complete if you engage in some of the game’s optional content.
Ultimately, we imagine that Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will offer in excess of 80 hours of gameplay for those who want to see and do everything – that’s about what the first game offered, anyway. Regardless, there’s plenty of content for your money, that’s for sure.
