Capcom is set to show off Monster Hunter Stories 2 during its E3 2021 showcase, but we got our first look at a new Monster Hunter Stories 2 trailer thanks to Summer Game Fest. It's short, but full of evocative imagery and gives us a sneaky hint that Capcom is going to make Monster Hunter: Old Yeller Edition out of it and bring us to tears.
The trailer is all about Rathalos, the potentially world-destroying dragon who is also your pet that you raised from an egg.
This Rathalos is the center of hatred and hope and takes on enemies of all kinds, though the main focus seems to be a strange cult that wants to awaken its horrific power (and hopefully not hurt it in the process). the process).
Other monsters are stomping on the scene, including Tigrex and Diablos, and we know from Capcom's big deep dive in Monster Hunter Stories 2 in May that you can mix and match egg genes to customize your Monsties and get a competitive advantage in combat.
After Capcom's presentation at E3, we won't have long to wait to meet the terrible Rathalos ourselves. Monster Hunter Stories 2 releases July 9 on Nintendo Switch and PC.
