With the E3 2021 wrapped up last month, we saw some great games scheduled for release this summer. Starting off with July, this month we will see some of the biggest releases of the year from Nintendo and Capcom. 

From the remastered release of the hit game “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” in HD for Nintendo Switch to Capcom’s very popular Monster Hunter series sequel “Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin”, the month of July is action-packed and today we are going to look over these games.

Monster Hunter Stories 2 is a sequel to the 2016 released Monster Hunter Stories game. The story begins with the mass disappearance of Rathalos around the world. The protagonist (player character) is a descendant of the legendary Rider named Red. Taking a cue from Pokemon Go, players will find monster eggs throughout their playthrough. Each monster egg can then be hatched into a monster that can be named, join battles, and used as a mount to travel around the game world. 

The game is set to release worldwide on the Nintendo Switch and PC on July 9, 2021. A set of three Amiibo figures will launch on the same day. To commemorate the release, Nintendo has also added a collectible Spirit to the Super Smash Bros Ultimate game.
