True.

They'll almost certainly have a demo. A perfect opportunity to check the game out and get a feel for how it works.

MH Stories 2 Amiibo on Amazon JP (SHIPS GLOBAL)

Total for me came to $85 shipped. These amiibo are GS exclusive in the US, just like like MH Rise amiibo. Compared to those, Ratha is more expensive just like Magnamalo was. And GS charged $20, $20 and $25, or $65 for all 3. Plus tax and that's $70. But GS also charged shipping on them, and charged individually at that, so the grand total was actually around $90. I suspect these will likewise cost around $90 shipped from GS, unless they suddenly decide to not charge shipping (not holding my breath).

Which means this is likely no more expensive than buying from GS, and that's if you're lucky enough to catch them at GS before they go OOS.

Alright E3...you better announce my most wanted monsters in this game, if I can't have them in Rise, you better give them to me in Stories 2. >.<

Gobul, Gigginox...I miss them. (also make Agnaktor a monstie, that bugged me in the first game, same with Daimyo, lol)

I didn't watch the trailer that was shown at the SGF, since I feel as if they're slowly reaching spoiler territory.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

shrugs It teases something at the end, but we don't get to see anything...final boss cutscene? New huge returning monster? No idea, lol

But yeah the original game never showed off end-game stuff in the trailers as far as I know.

@Joeynator3000 Eh, I'm just really cautious now, since I remember when Pokemon Sun and Moon effectively showed off the entire game in trailers.

Well so far it's been fine, spoilers in trailers never bothered me that much in the main MH games even when they teased the final bosses. From what I remember Stories never even teased the final boss, or even secret bosses. I'm guessing that tease at the end of the recent trailer is a final boss cutscene but we didn't see anything, sooooo....yeah. xD

@Ryu_Niiyama
Glad to be of service!

And ya, Amazon JP is a great resource. During the last year shipping costs were insane- like $50-60 due to C19 shutdowns. But it seems shipping has come back down to normal price levels again.

I'm getting the Collector Edition (3 of them ordered- 1 for display sealed, 1 to open and display the game sealed and keep the Ratha amiibo sealed, and 1 as backup in case of damage during transit... will return the extra afterwards), but also the physical game separately to open and have on my shelf, also the digital deluxe version of the game, also all 3 amiibo from JP to open and display, and once the come in stock on GS, the other 2 amiibo to keep sealed alongside Ratha. And of course, if there's a steelbook I'll be importing. Haven't seen anything yet though.

At least it's not as expensive as MH Rise was. Which had all the above, but also had steelbook in US, separate variant steelbook from EU which required ordering another copy of the game to get, and 2 MH Switch consoles. Yikes.

We also have Tony Hawk PS 1/2 coming, Neo TWEWY, Mario Golf, Zelda Skyward Sword, Ys IX, Ni No Kuni 2, Rune Factory 5 (seriously hope they patch the framerate though), No More Heroes 3... the next 90 days are gonna be crackin.

I thought you said you were waiting to buy it? I take it you changed your mind?

@JaxonH He isn't saying that he's not going to buy it. I just think he doesn't want to go into it with spoilers. I honestly feel the same way with the game, to the point where I stopped watching most of the trailers in order to avoid spoilers.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

JaxonH

@VoidofLight
I know he’s not saying that now but I’m referring to a different post in a different forum where I thought he had said he was going to wait.

@Snatcher From what I heard it was mostly the same stuff, and spoiling a bit more context on scenes they showed off, as well as potential hints at a final boss.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

Snatcher

@JaxonH Ya so i'm still going to wait to get the game, But I have the first one To keep me till then.

@VoidofLight But then you had the tree house that just showed off a hour of game play, like hell I was staying for that.
