Capcom had not reported on this detail of the version of Switch: we have to be careful.
With only a few days to go before the launch of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, there is possible evidence of an unpleasant surprise for those who intend to buy the game online. Physical format. And it is that, according to a new report from Nintendo Everything, the cartridge may require a data download to work.
To affirm this, the source refers to one of its own readers, who apparently works in a store and has been able to photograph the cover of the expected JRPG ahead and behind. In the photos you can see the “download required” label that accompanies some Switch games that do not fit on the card, which is quite rare because the digital version weighs only 13.5 GB which is less than half the capacity they have the cartridges from the console.
Based on the report, the download in question weighs about 15 GB, that is to say, the complete game. It is difficult to overlook a detail like this, but since at the end of the day we are talking about unofficial sources and it is entirely possible that it is a fake or a mistake, we will limit ourselves to recommending users interested in the physical version of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin to pay attention to the final boxes of the game or prepare an external memory card, just in case.
Capcom will bring the adventure starring the Rathalos Kalapteron to stores on July 9. This week, those in charge shared a news-packed stream for fans that covered the game’s launch trailer along with co-op gameplay and a roadmap full of additional monsters.
