Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin – Ver. 1.1.0 (Title Update 1)

  • Known issues:
  • The story’s final cutscene stops playing for some players.
  • When a Monstie’s element changes, their body color changes while out in the field but nowhere else.
    • This game does not include the feature to change a Monstie’s element. We are aware of a bug that causes Monstie color and appearance issues when out in the field and in Kinship Skill animations. This occurs when the attack power of another element is greater than the Monstie’s original element. This bug can be seen when Monsties are at a low level, but as they level up and their original element value increases, the bug will no longer occur. We will implement a fix that focuses only on the color change bug in a later update.
  • The following message appears when accessing multiplayer functions: “Corrupt data has been found. You cannot accept this quest.”
    • Some players have encountered a bug that will cause the above message to appear during local and online play.
  • A Lv. 99 Battle Buddy and their Lv. 99 Monstie will revert to Lv. 1 because of a certain condition.
    • This bug can occur after you part ways with a Battle Buddy and then add them to your party again.
  • Additional notes: none.
