Capcom Showcase reveals more information about Monster Hunter Franchise

The Japanese gaming giant finally got its time on the main stage of E3 2021. The studio used the opportunity to unveil an amazing standalone RPG title that is going to offer a unique experience. Gamers will get a chance to step into the RPG world, where mythical beings and legendary monsters rule the land. Among them lie a few Monster Hunters, who have established a special bond with their dragons.

This is where the story leads the protagonist towards his very own Legendary monster, Razewing Ratha. This powerful beast can decimate cities with a flap of its wing, which has granted him the name of Wings of Ruin. The story complicates further, as a mysterious organization is looking to capture Razewing Ratha to use its power for ulterior motives.

You must battle against all the odds and protect your special monster and humanity alike from the wrath of this evil contraband. However, things aren’t going to be so easy, as the land also harbors various other monsters with similar or greater strength. This title is going to offer a trial version from June 25th, 2021, with full release taking place on July 9th. Save data from the trial version will carry forward to the ultimate release later on as well.
