Monster Hunter has had a great year on the Switch, and if you’re looking to dive into fantasy world, then this Black Friday special on Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will help flesh out your library. Over on GameStop, you can grab the $60 game for just $40.
It’s worth noting that Amazon also has the same deal, but for now it appears to be currently sold out. For more Nintendo deals, you can check the Nintendo eShop Black Friday sale and the GameFly Black Friday sale that has Metroid Dread marked down to $45.
A departure from the usual beast-hunting action of your regular Monster Hunter game, Wings of Ruin plays is a colorful turn-based monster-collecting RPG. Similar to Pokemon, you won’t be harvesting monsters for their luxurious hides so that you can forge new gear in this spin-off, but you will be forming bonds with them and using them in battles instead.
“An enjoyable Monster Hunter spin-off and an all-around solid JRPG, particularly if you enjoy games like Pokemon,” critic Kevin Knezevic wrote in his Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin review. “While the title retains some of the series’ hallmark elements, its emphasis on monster collecting and its fun turn-based battle system make it a decidedly different experience than Monster Hunter Rise, one that even those who’ve struggled to get into the proper Monster Hunter series can enjoy.”
