Monster Hunter Rise is a much anticipated title for Switch gamers and finally it has launched on the Nintendo Switch. The Monster Hunter franchise has been popular since 2004 when the first game was released. However, unlike previous Monster Hunter games, Monster Hunter Rise takes the experience to a whole new level with bigger monsters, new ways to hunt, and new weaponry.
You will team up with 3 other players in order to save the ninja-inspired Kamura Village from fearsome monsters. In this village which is based on ancient Japan, you will be introduced to an interesting culture and benefit from their technological hunting tools. Interestingly, you will be powered by the Wirebug, an insect that will allow you to grapple towards any direction. This feature is very similar to Spider Man’s web-slinging power.
Finally, the game will introduce you to vast landscapes to explore with no loading times whatsoever. The game is also sold as a Deluxe Edition that features the full game and bonus DLC. You can now buy the standard game at the price of $59.99 or the deluxe version which costs $69.99. You can watch the announcement trailer for Monster Hunter Rise below.
