The Monster Hunter Series was introduced today with the global release of Monster Hunter Rise A new adventure for the Nintendo Switch. This latest entry accompanies the players to the village of Kamura, which is preparing for an impending riot. Hunters can face these challenges alone or with up to three people in local or online multiplayer mode. Thanks to ingenuity Nintendo Switch Players can now go fishing anytime, anywhere, and with whomever they want!
In Monster Hunter Rise, dog-like Palamutes make their debut as a new companion and rope beetle mechanics ensure more freedom in action-packed fights. The Palamutes join the chain of favorites, the Palicos cats, and the back-up players: indoors while they hunt. In addition to their great fighting skills, the Palamutes also serve their hunters as mountains. In this way, fleeing monsters can be caught quickly and hunting grounds can be crossed quickly. On the other hand, cable beetles allow players to move in all directions while hunting – meaning even dizzying heights. It can also be combined with any of the 14 types of weapons to create a silk tie attack. Striking with these attacks means that a new wyvern mode can be implemented and players can temporarily control large monsters.
In the new rampage missions in Monster Hunter Rise, hunters must expand the defenses of the village with the help of the inhabitants of the Kamura in order to repel the massive attack of the castle by the hordes of monsters. The special challenge is the summit monsters that can appear during this siege. Dynamic difficulty adjustment in Monster Hunter Rise ensures that the mission difficulty is automatically set as other players join or leave a mission. The new Hunter Connect feature lets you create your own tag that reflects goals and gameplay. This allows you to find Hunters with similar interests or add friends more quickly. After completing a mission in multiplayer mode, other players can be “liked”. This increases the chance of finding yourself again searching for your fellow players.
