Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter 2: Wings of Ruin Land hit the Switch in 2021
As a seasoned hunter, I am always looking for my next conquest or the next great battle. Monster Hunter World Iceborne was a grand time and still going strong. However, I was hoping for a Nintendo Switch version to be ported, but I guess that is not going to happen. Today at the Nintendo Direct we were given two Monster Hunter titles coming out in 2021. Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Ruin Land. Let’s see what’s in store for us.
Monster Hunter Rise:
We are getting new tools in this one hunters. The trailer shown today showed off this new “Wirebug” mechanic that looks like a laser whip.
“The core gameplay experience in Monster Hunter Rise will feel familiar to previous Monster Hunter entries, but it also introduces several new and exciting mechanics for hunters to master. For the first time ever, wire-based grappling actions can be performed by using a “Wirebug” while standing or in mid-air, adding an all-new level of aerial maneuverability to hunting strategies and attacks. As players defeat monsters and progress through the game, items from fallen foes can be used to craft unique weapons and armor that will increase their chances of future success and survival.”
Besides, those new companions are being added called Palamutes and it is awesome. Also, rideable “Canyne” which are wolf mounts that will also engage in combat to add more attack options. The palicos will make a return as support characters to your hunters. The best part is in multiplayer hunters can choose one or the other!
“Monster Hunter Rise will introduce Magnamalo, a menacing new flagship monster that will present a formidable challenge to hunters of all skill levels. Players can expect to confront additional new monsters like the shape-shifting Aknosom, the amphibious Tetranadon, as well as numerous fan-favorite and returning species from previous Monster Hunter games. In addition to the plethora of solo and multiplayer quests, the story mode will task aspiring hunters with discovering the secrets behind the puzzling “Rampage” events that threaten Kamura Village.”
Magnamalo looks fierce, but every time they do introduce a new monster to the series it is just exciting. Also in the works is a shapeshifter which has never been seen before called Aknsom…hmm that is intriguing. Either way, bring it on and since we have an amphibious Tetranadon does that mean underwater fights are returning?
Finally, we have details on Monster Hunter Rise Editions. You know the editions that give you that extra care as a fan.
- Standard Edition $59.99
- Deluxe Edition for MSRP $69.99 will include the standard edition of the game (physical or digital), as well as a digital DLC pack voucher that can be redeemed for bonus in-game content such as a “Kamurai” full layered armor set, exclusive gestures, cosmetic items and more.
- The limited Collector’s Edition (physical only) for MSRP $99.99 will contain everything from the Deluxe Edition, in addition to physical items including a monster icon sticker pack, Kamura Mark enamel pin, and an amiibo figure of Magnamalo, the flagship monster featured in the game.
All the pre-order details and where you can pre-order will be announced at a later date.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
Monster Hunter Stories was always a wholesome great looking game that takes a different style to the series. You can actually have monsters as pets which gives this a more rich story and more of an RPG element. MH Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will have challenging quests and friendly encounters with many familiar monsters.
“Assuming the role of a young Monster Rider who can use a Kinship Stone to form strong bonds with monsters, players can gain experience and improve their skills to form deeper connections with these wonderful creatures. When ready, players can embark on memorable adventures filled with dramatic events and heartwarming friendships as the epic tale unfolds.”
There you have and as of right now we only know that there will be a release sometime in March of 2021. This Nintendo Direct Mini was pretty good and as a Monster Hunter fan, I am geared up ready to hunt. What say you gamers? – Beast Out –
