Capcom has released a demo for Monster Hunter Stories 2 on Nintendo Switch giving us a glimpse at the game ahead of its official launch on July 9.
Monster Hunter Stories 2 is an upcoming JRPG from Capcom based on the Monster Hunter series. It is a sequel to the first game that launched on the Nintendo 3DS and then later was ported to Smartphones. Despite being a sequel, it doesn’t appear you require knowledge of the first game to understand the story in it.
If you have a Nintendo Switch, you can download a demo for the game ahead of the launch on July 9. It gives a good idea of the performance that is expected from the Nintendo Switch version.
As the video above shows, the performance is a mixed bag with a variable frame rate that can go above 30 FPS and drop as low as 20 FPS during cutscenes. If you prefer performance then you should be able to get the game on PC where it is launching alongside the Nintendo Switch version.
In this second chapter of the turn-based RPG series centered in the universe of Monster Hunter, you’ll go on a new journey! As a Rider, you will develop relationships with friendly monsters known as Monsties and will battle with them in an epic narrative.
You take on the role of Red’s grandson, a famous Rider. The narrative opens with Ena, a Wyverian girl who has been entrusted with an egg that has the potential to hatch into a legendary Rathalos capable of wreaking havoc if it is awakened to its deadly force.
Set off on an adventure that will put your friendships to the test in a changing world and reveal the truth behind legendary tales. The game is out on July 9, 2021, for the PC and Nintendo Switch.
