Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe vs Standard Edition - What's Included, is it Worth it?

Which version of Monster Hunter rise is right for you?

Despite Nintendo’s 2021 starting to get a little busier following recent Nintendo and Pokemon Directs, Monster Hunter Rise is still likely to be one of the best selling games on the Switch this year. Monster Hunter has always been a popular series, but its popularity skyrocketed with the release of Monster Hunter World – a game which is now Capcom’s best selling of all time.

With Monster Hunter Rise, Capcom has shown off a bunch of different editions and extras. The game has Standard, Deluxe and Collector’s editions available, along with Amiibo, a special limited edition console and a limited Pro Controller. Let’s take a look at Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe vs Standard Editions to see what’s included and if it’s worth upgrading.

Monster Hunter Rise Standard Edition – What’s included?

As expected, the Monster Hunter Rise Standard Edition is just that, the standard version of the game. This edition of the game comes simply with the game and a pre-order bonus. It is available for pre-order from most retailers for $59.99/£49.99 from most retailers.

The pre-order bonus that comes included with both this and the Deluxe Edition is as follows:

  • Palamute Retriever Costume layered armour
  • Palico Forest Cat Costume layered armour
  • Novice Talisman for some extra assistance in the early stages

Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe Edition – What’s included?

The Deluxe Edition of Monster Hunter Rise comes with everything that the Standard Edition comes with, however, includes a few extra items. These are as follows:

  • Kamurai Hunter layered armour set
  • Shuriken Collar Palamute layered armour piece
  • Fish Collar Palico layered armour piece
  • Gestures (4 Jumps)
  • Samurai pose set
  • Kabuki face paint
  • Izuchi Tail hairstyle

The premium for these items, an extra $10/£10.

Which one should you choose?

It all depends on how big of a Monster Hunter fan you are really. For me, spending an extra $10/£10 on a handful of cosmetic items feels a little steep, especially when you’re unlikely to use most of the armour for very long. That being said, Monster Hunter has a dedicated following, and for those, this may be worth it.

That’s what we think of Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe vs Standard Edition debate. Let us know which one you’re going for in the comments below.
