Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin has shipped a million units worldwide on Nintendo Switch and PC, Capcom has announced.

The spin-off RPG launched just a couple of weeks ago, and has already hit the milestone in both digital and physical sales. The number means that the total number of units shipped for the entire Monster Hunter series now stands at a whopping 72 million units as of the end of March 2021.

In case you’re not up to speed, you take on the role of the grandchild of famed Monster Rider Red. Joining forces with a mysterious wyverian girl Ena, you’re entrusted with the care of a Rathalos egg which soon hatches. However, a dark prophecy has foretold that a flightless Rathalos will eventually bring about the ruin of the world. It’s down to you and Ena to try and befriend and perhaps tame the legendary Rathalos and prevent that from happening.

In our review, Josh said the game “may not make a hardened hunter of you, but nor does it want to. It would rather bring you along for its own wondrous ride.” You can check out his full verdict just over here. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is available now on Nintendo Switch and PC.
