Rise to the challenge and join the hunt!

Go on a hunt wherever you want, whenever you want in MONSTER HUNTER RISE for Nintendo Switch! Freely explore sweeping landscapes inspired by ancient Japan, slay ferocious wild monsters solo or co‑operatively with friends, and forge powerful weapons and armour from your spoils in this sprawling action RPG.

Kamura needs you!

The sighting of a terrifying monster of legend signals the return of a catastrophic event, which threatens to bring chaos to Kamura Village. With the aid of the village elder and the local residents, you must sharpen your hunting skills and save this peaceful settlement from an onslaught of monsters.

Let's meet some of the locals who'll be aiding your mission!

New ways to hunt!

From the Wirebug that allows players to zip through the air and wreak havoc by taking control of monsters to the invaluable support offered by new buddies like the Palamutes, MONSTER HUNTER RISE is brimming with new ways to explore and hunt your quarry.

Here they come!

From ferocious new foes like the fearsome Magnamalo to fan favourites like the Tigrex and Mizutsune, a bevy of huge beasts await those brave enough to take up arms against them. Here are just a few of the behemoths that’ll you’ll encounter in the wild.

These powerful creatures will make quick work of ill-prepared hunters, so study their attack patterns and behaviours to determine the best time to strike...or run! Spot another monster lurking nearby? Try to lure it into the fray to help turn the tide!

The greater the threat, the better equipped you’ll need to be to face it. Craft new weapons and armour from your spoils and parts carved from the monsters you’ve vanquished. Be sure to keep your inventory well-stocked with healing items, traps and other hunting essentials!

A call to arms

Gigantic blades, sharp lances, hefty hammers, ranged bowguns and more – you’re sure to find several favourites among the arsenal of 14 unique weapons on offer.

Each weapon handles differently and comes with its own unique strengths for those willing to put the time in to master them. Experiment with each one and find the right weapons to suit your hunting style.

The last line of defence

MonsterHunterRise_Overview_LastLine_scr.png

To protect Kamura Village from invading monsters, the villagers have built a sturdy stronghold. On certain quests, you’ll be asked to hold the fort by laying traps and setting up turrets while under siege from a relentless horde of frenzied monsters. It won’t be easy, but the rewards for defending the stronghold are sure to be worth it.

Strength in numbers

MonsterHunterRise_Overview_Numbers_Scr.png

Every hunter knows that nothing beats the thrill of teaming up to topple titans – and on Nintendo Switch, it’s even easier to form a hunting party!

Whether your allies are nearby or faraway, up to four players can join forces locally or online to undertake quests, fell monsters together and enjoy a share of the spoils. Between hunts, regroup in Kamura Village to plan your next excursion, drop by the smithy to upgrade your weapons and armour, or enjoy a hearty meal at the Tea Shop.

Take control of monsters!

The Wirebug’s super-strong silk can even be used to bind wild monsters, giving you an opportunity to control them briefly in battle – try ramming them into walls or use them to take on other threats such as other monsters!

Buddies are a hunter’s best friends – and not just because they’re adorable! Canine companions called Palamutes will let you ride on their backs, allowing you to cover great distances quickly without consuming stamina and use items while on the move. They’ll also fight alongside you in battle.

If you’re a cat person, then look no further than the Palico! These friendly felines support hunters by keeping them in tip-top shape, boosting their stats and healing allies in need. They’ll also gather nearby items while you’re busy tracking prey.

Become one with nature

From ancient ruins to snow-covered mountains – your quests will take you to bountiful biomes teeming with flora and fauna. Take time to seek out birds, bugs and other endemic life in each region for some useful boons, such as the healing properties of the Vigourwasp or the Cottonfly which ups your hunter’s defence.
