During the latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, the first title out of the gates was one that has been rumored for a while now but was no less surprising despite the scuttlebutt. Monster Hunter Rise is coming to Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021 and it is looking fierce. Give it a glimpse:

There is a lot to absorb from just this trailer alone, so let’s start with the official synopsis:

This latest entry in the action-RPG series finds players battling fearsome monsters and reaching new heights. Prepare to be transported to the colorful Kamura Village, a new serene mountain locale where players will experience unique culture and innovative hunting technologies. Using a special insect called a Wirebug, hunters will be able to grapple themselves in any direction, making it possible to scale towering cliffs and structures. All combat areas within each quest are seamlessly connected, allowing for exploration of the vast and vertical landscapes with no loading times. MONSTER HUNTER RISE launches for Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021. Additionally, a Deluxe Edition will also be available, which offers the full game and bonus DLC. Pre-ordering the base or Deluxe version will unlock bonus in-game items like layered armor and more. Players will be able to get even more in-game extras with Monster Hunter amiibo accessories. The three standalone amiibo accessories will be available exclusively at GameStop locations in the U.S. and EB Games in Canada. Visit Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch today for details about how to pre-order the game.

That’s right, three new Amiibo will be launched alongside the game, which will also be receiving a physical retail release. What’s more, new mounts called Palamutes (canine support that can be ridden like horses) will allow hunters to traverse the landscape more easily and also assist in battle. What’s more, a sense of verticality is being introduced in this installment of Monster Hunter, as players will be able to fling themselves upwards using something called a Wirebug.

Capcom has promised that more will be shown off of Rise during Tokyo Game Show 2020. We’ll continue to update as more information drops, but in the meantime tell us what your hype level is for the game down below and on social media!
