Update #2 [Thu 8th Jul, 2021 02:45 BST]: In a social media update, Capcom confirmed the physical version of “Monster Hunter Story 2: Wings of Destruction” Is not Need to download or install to start playing, and apologize for any confusion.

Let’s put it this way, there will be a patch for the first day, requiring 0.5GB of free space. Here are the complete details:


Update #1: It seems that this may be another example of Capcom game typographical errors-we all remember Resident Evil Apocalypse-because North American players have a copy for a long time and stated that they can play the game without downloading it. As you can see from our noncommittal approach, we don’t want to say that this is 100% certain now, but considering that there is no download requirement displayed on the EU retail box, this seems to be a localized printing error.

We will pay close attention to more explicit updates.

Here are some news that physical collectors will be very concerned about-the retail version Monster Hunter Story 2: Wings of Destruction May need to be downloaded. It may be more than just a day one patch.

According to Nintendo Everything, photos of North American game boxes (from a retail employee) it received appeared to indicate that a hard copy of the game needs to be downloaded to play the game. It says “download required” on the front and on the back it says that the game requires at least 15GB of download space. The eShop file size list is 13.5GB.

Although storage requirements are not necessarily an issue-especially if you have a MicroSD card, there is still a problem that the physical copy does not contain the entire game. some You may feel that the purpose of buying a hard copy in the first place has failed.

Capcom did not mention the need to download a game of this size before, nor did it mention it elsewhere, so fortunately, this is just a typographical error. If we hear other news, we will update this article.
