Play Monster Hunter Rise For Free This Weekend, and Check Out the Sunbreak Showcase Next Week

Capcom has announced that you’ll be able to play Monster Hunter Rise for free from March 11 to March 17, so long as you’re a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber. If you end up deciding to buy the full game following this trial period, your save data will, in fact, carry over.

In addition to this, a digital showcase for the upcoming Sunbreak expansion will be taking place on March 15 at 7 AM PT/10 AM ET. The expansion is set to release this Summer, and while not too much has been revealed about it, it’s set to have a new base of operations and all sorts of new and challenging content for players to experience.

Capcom also released a recap trailer that sums up all the different content and crossovers that Monster Hunter Rise includes. These range from collaborations with Monster Hunter Stories 2 to Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man.
