The Rise of Monster Hunter is completely new Monster hunter title for Nintendo Switch. The game was developed with Capcom’s own RE ENGINE to provide a new, affordable one Monster hunter an experience you can enjoy anytime, anywhere and with anyone. In addition to the new monsters and bars, the game offers a whole new look at the hunting experience through a host of new, exciting hunting activities possible with Wirebug. With this, players can cross rocky cliffs through the wall, soar over rocky terrain and in the air at high speed, or even bind monsters and control them. Adding to the excitement is the debut of new canyne hunting partners called Palamutes, which hunters can ride to quickly navigate the maps. The title received critical acclaim after the launch of two demonstrations, including both local and online pre-launch co-op, with deliveries of more than five million units a week after release.
