It has been twenty-four years since the release of PlayStation title Monster Rancher, known in Japan as Monster Farm. The first game spawned numerous other games, as well as an anime series. Koei Tecmo has given players the chance to relive those days with Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX, a bundle containing remasters of the first two titles. Players can actually spawn their own monsters, by using the CD library.
As you unlock more powerful monsters, you will notice something happening at the Shrine in the early game. Each unlock for the rarer breeds requires a certain series of steps. Expeditions are also a big part of this process. But it’s not just that. To actually get access to the full monster roster, you need to complete some very specific tasks. One of the many things you can do to improve your potential as a monster breeder is to upgrade the Ranch in Monster Rancher 2. Here’s what you need to do to upgrade the Ranch in Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX.
How do I upgrade the Ranch in Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX?
the second game in the series makes this a much more convoluted process. it really adds a lot of layers onto what foundation from the first game. The basic idea is that you need to have a certain amount of gold on hand, and have a monster at a certain breeder rank to get Ranch upgrades. There are three tiers of Ranch upgrades for the game.
When you want to upgrade the Ranch in Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX you need to have beaten the official breeder cup for that letter rank. There are 10 Breeder ranks in MR2, and each one is attached to beating a certain tournament. You start at Trainer Rank 1, and must get to Rank 3 to unlock the first upgrade for your House. When you reach the 4th Week of May, the event should trigger if you have the gold to afford it. Use the list below to know what you need to do.
