If the release of Monster Hunter Rise back in March didn’t fully scratch your itch for a new Monster Hunter game, the latest installment of the Stories spin-off series might do the trick.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, which is out July 9 on the Switch and PC, puts you in the role of a Monster Rider who must journey across the world to learn why all of the Rathalos suddenly disappeared and discover how to bring them back.

If you’ve never played the original Stories on the Nintendo 3DS, don’t stress. No one really did. You can easily jump into this sequel without having played the original.

If this is your first time venturing outside of the core Monster Hunter series and the more stylised anime-inspired visuals aren’t a giveaway, you shouldn’t expect the same kind of gameplay with Stories 2.

The game still has some of the RPG elements of the main series, but combat is fought with a turn-based battle system that triggers when you enter combat with monsters you encounter in the wild. These monsters are also able to be tamed and used in later battles.

If you’re on the hunt for a cheap copy, here’s where you need to look.
