Monster Hunter Rise Preview Capcom could have a monstrous hit

Monster Hunter Rise Preview, It’s been three years since Capcom blew everyone away with the release Monster Hunter: World and it’s safe to say that fans are still enjoying the Iceborne expansion. But much, to everyone’s surprise, Capcom announced that the next installment of Monster Hunter Rise would be a Nintendo Switch exclusive.

This was definitely a shock as Monster Hunter: World was a must-have on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, so it would have been an obvious choice to make Rise multiplatform.

This means the fans will get a game that is specifically built to utilize the Nintendo Switch’s functionality and not just a substandard port. The Monster Hunter Series has evolved over the years adding new features, abilities, and weapons to be used in various different areas.

However, the core gameplay loop where players take the role of a Hunter to slay or trap large monsters as part of the quest to gain loot remains the same throughout. Monster Hunter Rise Preview.

Players can use the loot to improve their weapons and armor which in turn allows them to hunt stronger monsters. One of the best features is the multiplayer mode where players can team up with other Hunters to tackle really hard quests and slay a really powerful monster.

If you haven’t played any of the previous Monster Hunter games, no need to worry as even though the games take place in the Monster Hunter World all the stories are independent of each other. In anticipation of its worldwide release on March 26th, Capcom sent the Mirror Online an early access demo for us to sink our teeth into.

It’s very similar to the Clutch Claw in Monster Hunter: World but a lot more flashy and a few other technical differences. The Firebug can also be used with each weapon to create a Skillbind action, this adds to the weapons move set and combos.

Players will also be able to use the Firebug to ride monsters, allowing them to aid you in battle with other behemoths. Palacios returns to help hunters during their quest, but this time players will also have another companion.

Malamutes are new additions to the Monster Hunter series, these canine companions will become your new best friend as they allow players to ride them and they even help in battle. Capcom has said that new travel buddies can personalize, so it will be interesting to see the level design that will be allowed.

From what Mirror Online has seen from the early demo, Monster Hunter Rise is shaping up to be an amazing game with so much depth. The Wirebugs and Palamutes are fully welcomed new additions that feel like they should have always been included in Monster Hunter games.

Players are going to relish being able to play on the go in an undocked mode which currently works like a charm
