On January 7th, Capcom held a special event for Monster Hunter Rise, revealing a new trailer and how the demo will be available later that same day. However, the Monster Hunter Rise demo will only be playable until February 1st, at 3PM ET. Capcom also wishes to hear your thoughts on the event through a survey.
Said demo’s popularity saw the digital storefront suffer massive slowdowns as a result. However, it’s not just the eShop that has been facing some issues, as players are reporting that the game itself is stuttering. Our in-depth impressions piece also mentions the issue. However, it seems as if the issue isn’t related to an internet connection, but potentially the primary Nintendo Account.
Lastly, the event did not detail The Rampage mechanic of Monster Hunter Rise yet. The only thing we’ve heard is how we’ll have to prepare the village to face it. The Rampage was teased in Japanese interviews and in the previous trailer revealed at The Game Awards 2020. This game mechanic was first teased in one of the first Japanese trailers for the game using the kanji 百竜夜行, which is a pun on Japanese idiom 百鬼夜行, Hyakki Yagyo, designing a horde of Youkai.
