Capcom recently announced its latest entry in the Monster Hunter series with Monster Hunter Rise for the Switch.
Upon the release of Monster Hunter Rise, it makes for the second Monster Hunter title on the platform, following Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
Although the game will share the core gameplay design inherent in the franchise, Rise is breaking grounds by featuring an open-world environment and verticality. Not only will players get to explore larger areas than ever before, but they also get to reach heights that weren’t possible prior. The latter speaks of the game’s functionality to let players climb tall areas with a grappling hook.
Furthermore, Rise will also feature another specie to act as a partner in the game. This specie is a dog called Palamute, which serves as an alternative to the usual felyne, Palico. Being a larger, more capable four-legged creature, a Palamute can play the role of transport for faster navigation across the game’s map.
As is true to Monster Hunter tradition, Monster Hunter Rise will also introduce a slew of new and returning monsters.
Catering to different kinds of consumers, this newest Monster Hunter title will come in three variants—standard, deluxe, and collector’s edition. As interesting as it is exciting, the game is currently up for pre-order now.
Read on for more information on how each version differs from another.
Consumers who are eager to get their hands on the game as soon as it gets released can pre-order the standard edition on either Amazon, Best Buy, or GameStop. Alternatively, the game can also be pre-ordered digitally at the eShop. Overall, the standard game comes at a price tag of $59.99, whether a physical copy or not.
