Monster Hunter games, like Monster Hunter Rise, are known for being massive games that require hundreds of hours to see everything they have to offer. Between hunting many different monsters, crafting tons of different items, and exploring the world, the Monster Hunter series is the one to get for those who like to spend months playing the same game to master its mechanics.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a little different in this regard. While the game does offer many of the features seen in the main entries in the series, it’s not as massive as the other games, so it doesn’t take as long to complete. But how long does it take exactly? Let us find out.
How Long is Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin?
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a traditional turn-based Japanese role-playing game, and even its total length is as traditional as it can get. It will take you around 40 hours to complete the game by playing it at a steady pace while engaging with a little bit of side content. While the game may not be as long as other modern JRPGs, a 40 hours long campaign makes sure that even those players who lead extremely busy lives will be able to complete it without having to spend months with the game.
Those who want to take things a little further, and see everything the game has to offer, are looking at around another 20 hours of playtime.
