Capcom has shown off a bunch of new co-op gameplay footage for upcoming RPG spin-off Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin ahead of the game’s launch on Nintendo Switch next week.

In addition, the studio has detailed its post-launch calendar of additional content following the game’s launch. Just a few days after release, the game will offer up the Palamute from Monster Hunter Rise as detailed a couple of weeks ago. The first major title update will then land on August 5, bringing along a co-op quest exclusive monster in the Kulve Taroth and two more Monsties in the Hellblade Glavenus and Boltreaver Astalos.

Title Update 3 then arrives in September and will bring three new Monsties — the Soulseer Mizutsune, the Elderfrost Gammoth and the Oroshi Kirin. Later in September a fourth update will add Dreadking Rathalos and Molten Tigrex and another version of the co-op quest for the Kulve Taroth but with an even higher difficulty.

Finally, in October, another Co-op Quest exclusive mission, with more details to be announced closer to the time. We do know it’ll be a high difficulty quest, and will also come with Silver Rathalos and Gold Rathian Monsties. All the updates will, of course, be free.

You can check out the gameplay video, launch trailer and roadmap for yourself below. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin launches for Nintendo Switch and on PC on July 9.
