Monster Hunter Rise Announced On Switch, Coming Next March

Capcom revealed Monster Hunter Rise on Nintendo Switch at today's Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase.

At the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase on September 17, Capcom revealed Monster Hunter Rise on Switch. The game is coming on March 26, 2021, worldwide.

Monster Hunter Rise has a distinctive sengoku-era, Japanese-inspired atmosphere, a pretty different contrast to Monster Hunter World (Iceborne).

We have both the Japanese dubbed and English dubbed versions of the announcement trailer below:

A brand new Switch focused entry of Monster Hunter was recently leaked. The leaks ended up true, this is Monster Hunter Rise. The same leak mentioned Monster Hunter Rise is running on a Switch compatible version of the RE Engine. This would explain why the game looks pretty nice.

The only Monster Hunter on Switch until now was Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, known in Japan as Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross). It’s an HD version of the Nintendo 3DS game of the same name. MH Rise is the very first MH specifically made on Switch by Capcom.

More details are coming soon with a Monster Hunter Direct airing now which we’ll cover in a separate article.

We might get additional news on MH Rise at Tokyo Game Show, held from September 23 to 27. The TGS official schedule can be found here (JST). We’ll be soon publishing our own schedule on DualShockers with all the games teased or announced so far. We’ll actually watch the streams too, and translate as many details as possible. Meaning we’ll  have details missed by non Japanese speakers. Look forward to it.
