It takes roughly 40 hours to beat Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. This time is based on players just focusing on the main story with no heavy grinding. This means no excess grinding for loot, going out of your way to capture Monsties, and no completing side quests or other optional content.

This is no doubt some good news for long-time Monster Hunter Stories fans. The long playtime of just the main content means there’s plenty of opportunities to sink dozens – if not hundreds – of hours into creating just the right Monstie party.

There's plenty more content and hours of gameplay to enjoy thanks to the free title updates coming to Monster Hunter Stories 2.

Outside of the main story, players will want to focus on the numerous Subquests that are available, the NPC quests dotted throughout the regions, and, of course, crafting the perfect Monstie party. This last one is where the most time will be spent, as you will want to be hunting down Rare Monstie eggs and changing the genes of your Monsties to give you the ultimate fighting team.

Of course, the playtime doesn’t end there. Capcom has also shown off a roadmap for Monster Hunter Stories 2. This includes a whole lot of free title updates that add new Monsties to hunt and collect, co-op quests to experience, and even some high difficulty objectives.

It’s going to take you quite a few hours to beat Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
