Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is out tomorrow for Nintendo Switch and PC. It was originally announced just for Nintendo Switch alongside Monster Hunter Rise last year and it builds on the original 3DS game with enhancements and improvements across the board. It is also accessible for newcomers. Read my review of it here for the Nintendo Switch version and here for the PC version. Today, retailer MCube Games has listed Monster Hunter Stories 2 for India release on Nintendo Switch. The retailer confirmed to The Mako Reactor that this is a Region 2 version for any potential codes included. The game itself will work with DLC purchased on US, UK and EU eShops at least for sure but the region is important for any pre-order codes.
