Hunters rejoice! The world of Monster Hunter is, after long last, making its way to the Nintendo Switch (not counting ports) with its next title, Monster Hunter Rise. The announcement came as the introduction to the most recent Nintendo Direct Mini, a third-party focused press event for the Nintendo Switch.



Monster Hunter Rise is the next in the series. Big shoes to fill, considering the massive success of Monster Hunter World. So what can we expect? Here are a few things we noticed with the new trailer, in combination with a statement by Capcom, reported by Eurogamer.

The first thing you'll see is a new dog-like creature known as a Palamute. This appears to be a new companion for the player, similar to the felyne Palico. Palamutes offer a form of quick transportation across the map without depleting stamina. But don't worry, they'll still help you fight when the moment calls for it.

Next is the Wire-Bug. While called a bug, they serve as a long range grappling tool, allowing hunters to latch onto and swing from various objects in the environment. This is a major part of Rise, according to Capcom, since the world will explore vertical space more in Rise. That makes sense, given the name.

The last major aspect shown to us is the story. Monster Hunter Rise takes place in Kamura Village, where a dangerous new beast is approaching the already dangerous wilds around their home: the Magnamala.

The rest of the video was a flash showcase of environments and monsters that the game will feature. This includes the Shrine Ruins, Great Izuchi, Aknosom, and the Tetrandadon.

Monster Hunter Rise will release on Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021. The official release date is subject to change, however, given the current pandemic.

Joining the game's release will be three new Amiibo as well, one for the Palamute, the Palico, and the Magnamalo. Scanning these on your switch will provide special armor and useful items.

This was a Nintendo announcement, so there's no confirmation currently as if the title will also release on other consoles or PC.
