What you need to know

  • Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is the newest spin-off of the Monster Hunter series.
  • Newcomers to the game can get tips from a VTuber version of Tsukino, a main character in the game.
  • The first episode of Lesson Time with Tsukino is up on the official Monster Hunter YouTube account.

Those who didn't play the original Monster Hunter Stories on the Nintendo 3DS may need some assistance orienting themselves in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. Thankfully, Capcom has a solution to assist new players who need guidance — in the form of a VTuber version of Tsukino.

Tsukino is a new Palico character who makes her debut in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, even getting her own amiibo, which unlocks a special costume in the game. This series of videos, called "Lesson Time with Tsukino" seeks to offer advice to new players, wrapped up in an adorable package. Though the audio is in Japanese, Capcom is giving the videos English subtitles, and seems to plan to give all the videos the same treatment. You can watch the first episode of this series below.

Capcom has been lending their new game tons of support, even adding new multiplayer quests long after the game initially released.
