Capcom revealed that a new Monster Hunter experience titled Monster Hunter Rise is heading to Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021.
Monster Hunter Rise is the latest entry of the action-RPG series, where players are tasked with taking on some of the most powerful monsters around. The game is set in the Kamura Village, home to many warriors who have developed unique and innovative hunting technologies. One of which is a special insect called a Wirebug. This allows players to grapple themselves in any direction, making it possible to scale cliffs and structures.
Furthermore, all combat areas within each quest are seamlessly connected, allowing players the chance to explore the entire field without loading times.
A Deluxe Edition will be available, which includes the full game and bonus DLC. All pre-order will including a few in-game pieces of equipment as well. It’s also possible to unlock more items using one of the three newly revealed amiibo accessories, which are to be sold exclusively at Gamestop.
The developer released new gameplay showing how players will be able to hunt monsters and navigate this new adventure. After watching, it feels like this entry is a return to form for the series as it branches off of the very successful Monster Hunter World.
For now, it seems Monster Hunter Rise is a Switch exclusive.
