While Capcom is currently basking around the success of 2022's Monster Hunter World, it had been imminent that a new entry would arise in the series. Especially given that the latest entry – whilst not a mainline installment – isn't even available on the present Nintendo Switch. Howbeit, Switch owners can enjoy Monster Hunter Generations for the moment.
Granted, the game was initially available on the Nintendo 3DS, the title later received a port for that Nintendo Switch, but much of its awkward characteristics in the preceding handheld still lingers. Regardless, it will quench the thirst for Monster Hunter fans awaiting for that newest project to be revealed.
And during today's Nintendo Partnered Direct Mini, Capcom officially unveils Monster Hunter Rise. You can watch the announcement trailer in the video below:
“Prepare to become transported towards the colorful Kamura Village, a new serene mountain locale where players will experience unique culture and innovative hunting technologies,” the synapse provided by Nintendo for the game reads. “Using a special insect known as a Wirebug, hunters can grapple themselves in any direction, to be able to scale towering cliffs and structures.”
In addition to the game's announcement, Nintendo discloses an opulent Edition readily available for fans to pre-order in anticipation with this March once the title arrives. The heftier iteration offers unique in-game content for their character among other virtual items. There are also three separate Amiibo items that will be coming simultaneously for Monster Hunter Rise as well.

Rectify Gaming's David Rodriguez offers his time with the game to become a new and definitive experience worth having. “The hunt, the drive to defeat these beasts and conquer them, is the reason why this game so great. The very first time you land a trap, mount and capture or kill a monster, is really a satisfaction that can't be explained.”
