Monster Hunter Stories 2

If you’ve played the Monster Hunter Stories series, you’re probably familiar with the term called “monsties”. That’s because these games have a unique term for its creatures. Rather than going with something simple like “monsters”, a new “monsties” term was created.

So how did that term come to be in the first place? Speaking with Waypoint, English localization editor Joseph Detwiler explained:

The new 1.3.0 update for Monster Hunter Stories 2 has just been made available. It includes new monsters, co-op quests, and subquests. A bunch of bug fixes have also been implemented.

Below are the full patch notes:

Capcom has announced a third content update for Monster Hunter Stories 2. Arriving on September 2, this new update will add 3 new Monsties and 4 new Quests. Check out a trailer for the new content below.

Here’s an interesting tidbit about Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. In the game’s launch month – which was July – it has already outsold the first game on 3DS. In fact, it has actually more than tripled the lifetime sales of the original title.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin came in strong on the just-released NPD charts for July. It managed to come in third for the month.

On July 19, Capcom announced that the game had already shipped over one million copies worldwide.
