Capcom surprised Nintendo fans this week with not one but two brand new Monster Hunter games. The second title, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, will be released on the Switch in 2021 and is a follow-up to the original 2016 3DS entry.

This announcement is now seemingly fueling sales of the original Monster Hunter Stories game on Amazon in the US, as originally spotted by Twitter user Stealth40k. At the time of writing, the game is the best-selling 3DS title, and right now is the 11th best-selling 3DS product overall.

Instead of $39.99, it's currently available for $19.99. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is on sale as well via the Switch eShop.
