    Wow, it looks fantastic: To quote Fightincowboy



    1) Open locales similar to World.

    2) Wire Bug/Palamute for environment traversal and combo abilities.

    3) Combat system looks very similar to World.

    4) Palicos are still in, can decide between doggos or palicos to bring on hunt

    5) New monsters and returning Monsters from both new and old world.

    5) Monster Fights (turf wars) return.

    6) Monsters are more than just wyverns!!! (Bird/Amphibian Monsters)

    7) March 26th 2021 launch. Deluxe Edition has a bunch of DLC. Pre-order bonuses and amiibos confirmed

    Game looks great can't wait. I'm ready for a new monster hunter.

    Also I need that palamute retriever skin!

    The resident MH superfan in my house (my wife) is sceptical from the trailer. She is thinking it is looking like it may be heading too much into the MH World direction (she hated the demo and thought it was over dumbed down). She started with MH3 and skipped the 3DS entries but liked Generations Ultimate on Switch. Currently awaiting more trailers and details...

    If she didn't like World then she's no fan. Tbf I thought the demo felt dumbed down but still gave it a try, the full game is nothing like that demo, it's MH through and through. It's cheap enough now, she should really give it a go.

    If not, tell her to hand in her MH fan badge and don't let the Rathalos bite her on the way out. ;)

    Been a long time since eshop codes were decently discounted.

    Still all over that though!

    Visually it looks very unimpressive to me. I know they must have made a lot of sacrifices to get the RE Engine to run on the Switch at all, but the final result is just not that good imo.

    It does seem to run well though, and looks sharp too - unlike the Xbox One version of World, which was a blurry mess and dropped frames all the time. I'll take sharpness and consistency over visual flourish. So that was probably the right thing to do.

    Shame I just can't be arsed with Monster Hunter anymore. I couldn't even get into World.

    @Malek86 I thought it looks pretty good for a Switch game, personally.

    I didn't play MH:W, in fact the last I played was MH Portable Third HD (how's that for an effed up naming scheme). MH:W I haven't picked up yet because I have a backlog and I like to buy games at bargain bin prices, and also for me Monster Hunter was all about PSP. MH:Rise seems pretty good to me because I'd be able to play it on the go and the Switch is pretty good replica of PSP.

    Looks great, first attempt run straight into Arzuros while hunting Great Izuchi and end up fighting them both. Yep this will do for me.

    Love what they've done with the hunting horn. Only weapon I defeated mitsu with without fainting.

    I played World for a good while. Then dropped it for a bit and tried to play it again.. trying to remember all the mechanics.. Does have some great tutorials though.
    Id definitely be up for this though. I think drop in and out would be good.

    I still don't think there has been mention of a themed Switch to go with the release..?
    Was really hoping for one and I don't have a switch yet so this would be a nice touch.

    @Laserbream Oh? I didn't try the HH yet. It's been one of my favourites in the other games, it's such a silly weapon but so much fun.

    As a long time HH main, I'm not sold yet. Also have they removed the unsheathing attack? It's very unsatisfying running up behind a monster, hitting (top button) and nothing much happening

    Don't you just have to press the button again straight after to do the unsheathing attack? It gives you more opening options. Probably completely wrong as I only had a quick go on the HH.

    Absolutely loving this. So much so that I've nearly used up my 30 hunts.

    I think you can just wipe your save to reset the hunt count.

    Not the best demo for beginners, trying to get a few friends into it and the tutorial doesn't even teach you how to fight and use items. I've played a couple of MH games and it took me a while to figure it out.

    I can see how the hh changes won't please everyone. But as much as I liked the horn in World, it was tough to find gaps in the action to play songs and do damage at the same time. And it was regularly bottom of the pile when it came to popularity.

    Yeah. This will now be the third MH game Ive tried to get my head around on a Nintendo handheld and life is just too fucking short for this level of hardcore indifference to the new starter. Souls games throw you in at the deep end, but they are at least mechanically operable from the off.

    Fuck this noise.

    I think the wife has fell out with games, she started the demo, got a little annoyed at the stupid voices (but kept going) then saw it had guide arrows telling you where to go and off it went immediately... Guess I get to keep TV access in March after all..

    I'd completely forgotten the button combos to use the insect glaive and couldn't find even a reminder anywhere, let alone an actual tutorial for each weapon like there was in the MHW demo.

    I tried a short go on this but was utterly baffled and clueless :(

    It's interesting. They've added the quest marker arrow and persistently visible map to help new players be less confused.

    But seems like new players are still confused and old veterans find the mollycoddling frustrating.

    Edit: So new players have an idea, in the early Monster Hunter games you couldn't see where the target monster is on the map. You would have to look for it and once you found it you could throw a paintball to mark its location on the map for a limited time. Actually you couldn't even see the minimap unless you were specifically carrying the map item. It was pretty, uh. Pretty something.
