Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Monster Hunter Rise announced for Switch, mainline entry

The real question is why did it take so long for Capcom to do this?

Most likely because they didnt have faith in the Switch, given the Wii U failure. They must have begun the development after 6 months of Switch being on the market, given its sales. Thats why it probably took them so long.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

In Japan AND Worldwide?

7-8m in Japan and 15m+ worldwide. tbone51 said so, so you better believe it.

If that’s what tbone said, than it’ll actually be 9-10m in Japan and 20m+ worldwide. He’s been off his game lately.

I always knew this was in development. They were simply going to release Iceborne first no matter what.



3 years is probably the minimum it's taking them to develop this game, I’m assuming. Remember the Covid factor.
If not for the pandemic, this would probably have been the Switch’s big December title. (Animal Crossing + Monster Hunter in the same year... Good Lord Have Mercy.)

They most likely took the wait-and-see approach with Switch after how badly the Wii U bombed. Then, once they saw that it was a smash hit (somewhere between Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey, I’m guessing) they got right to work on this one while they were putting the finishing touches on MH World.

Is the rumor that they are using the RE engine rather than MT Framework true? If that is the case, then it makes sense why it took so long. They were using different tools, and revamping assets to match those tools.

It was confirmed to be using RE Engine by a Capcom employee. Dont know where the tweet is though.

I don't think people really understand MonHun gameplay, if they think this is similar. I mean the complex gameplay of the different weapon types. Other games didn't really touch it in my experience.

I mean, I've played almost every Monster Hunter release since the original but okay... if you won't accept that example, how about something like Dauntless? 

Yeah, Dauntless matches, it just lost me with this online oriented stuff. I kinda liked the immersion in the world in MonHun more. But I do actually like the look of Dauntless.

*clap*

Finally, the MH game I've been waiting for since Genereations (played it on 3DS so I wasn't gonna buy it for Switch again) !!
It seems like Crap- ... Cap... Capcom was willing to actually bet on the system success once it had proved it a few years back.

And I'm also charmed about the fact that we're getting MH Stories 2 ! I liked the game on the 3DS, especially the cell-shading style they used. I just wish they will implement a bit more into the battle system than another rock-paper-scissor gimmick.

Welp, Switch 2021 is having a good start already :O

Man, I have been saying this for a while now: It dose't make sense for MH to be exclusive to one or other system. All games should be multiplatforms from now on.

But yeah, its nice to see Capcom finally taking the Switch seriously.Hope that they keep that going with A NEW MEGAMAN X GAME. I NEED IT CAPCOM.

Yes I need Megaman X9. I've been waiting half my life for this and my favourite game is X4.



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Japan 5-7 million digital included 

Outside Japan, I think about the same. Depends on how hard Nintendo and Capcom promote this one
