    Getting excited too. I don't think we have to worry about scalpers either, never had an issue getting switch games before?

    Going digital myself.
    MH is always good for a 15 min hunt when I have the chance and changing carts gets in the way of that (/is lazy).

    It was console scalpers I was concerned about.

    Arranging games won't be as easy as World I don't think, and no messaging/party system on Switch but my friend code is in the list somewhere on the forum.

    Ahh fair enough. Still, won't be as much of an issue as PS5 and series X.

    I've lost track of how the Nintendo system works. Do we just share NNID? Or will there be a friend code within the game as well?

    Vague memories on MH Tri on the Wii tell me that we arranged games on here, and agreed which lobby we would all go to. Surely it's moved on from that?

    You link up via friend-code EG list is here.

    You can then see who is playing in your friends list, and in the MP room and invite friends easy enough, or you could in MH:GU so assume t shouldn't be harder here.

    Maybe someone can enlighten me about the multiplayer on Switch. Do I need to pay them money for it?

    @mrharvest it's a fiver a month or thereabouts BUT it gives you access to a heap of NES and SNES games as a sweet sweet bonus.

    My snes mini hasn't had any love since getting switch online. I've even considered buying the snes wireless pad. It's so good to have Super Metroid, my favourite game of all time, handheld all the time.

    Hmm. This people:
    https://levelupwear.com/

    are the suppliers of the MHR tshirts on sale here:
    https://store.nintendo.co.uk/games/nintendo-switch/monster-hunter-rise.list?autocomplete=searchsuggestion

    But their intro video has hoodies as well which aren't listed for sale on either site.

    It's 18 for a year. If you subscribe remember to download Tetris 99 and the SNES and NES emulators as they come with the package.

    60/year??
    That seems kinda pricey compared to my vague memory of how much I pay for PSN.

    Just seen Pipedream's comment - that seems much more reasonable.

    Yeah it's only like 1.50 a month if you break it down.

    Family membership is like 32 a year, but you can link upto 8 separate accounts. Which is what some people do here, like Brokenkey said. I presume they just split the cost between them to make it even cheaper.

    Cool. Once the Switch arrives I will get that all sorted.

    Does Switch/Nintendo have anything like trophies? Didn't in the WiiU days, that I can remember.
    Gonna feel weird (in a good way) not needing to grind for gold crowns.
    Don't spoil my day be telling me that will still be a thing!! :)

    Sometimes games themselves have achievements, usually if they are on ps4 or xbox etc as well, but it's not something all have and there's no system for it.

    Looks like I missed the Amiibo boat on this - have they ever been available to pre-order or did they just sell out super fast.

    I've missed the entire thing with Amiibos. What do they do?

    A quick google has, of course, answered my question.

    @chrisno21 most likely sold out incredibly quickly. The game is going to be popular so now doubt pre-order came in and scalpers also saw a chance.

    I'm sure AliExpress will have card versions of them to buy for a few pennies. I looked it up and it wasn't that hard to make your own.

    I wasn't really looking to buy them for what they do, more because I'd like to have them. Don't have many amiibos and thought the palico and palamute looked good.

    If you manage to find them, order a pair for me and I'll sort you out with the cash... :)
    Likewise, if I find them available somewhere I'll order extra.

    I've ordered the Magnamolo (sp?) one, because I am a sucker for MH merch.
