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

So are we going accuse Nintendo from moneyhatting this to not release on Playstation?

It wouldn't surprise me if this was a moneyhat.  It wouldn't surprise me if World was a moneyhat either.  We'll never know for sure.  But the Monster Hunter series is the most important third party series for Japan.  I wouldn't blame either Nintendo or Sony for a moneyhat in this case.

The TGS gameplay showed us some new details:

- You can move while eating or drinking potions like in MH World

- "Endemic life" you find throughout the level grants you temporary buffs

- You get two Wirebugs at a time, though this can be buffed to three, and each has a cooldown timer after use

- You can find hidden "Great Wirebugs" that give you a huge boost up to a high place

- Perhaps most importantly, you can pet the dog



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Well, the game has no number, so not mainline

Tell me which numbers come before and after "World" on the number line?

Isn’t World more of a premium spinoff?


* Premium spinoff - as in not mainline, but just as important, if not more important. Kind of like World of Warcraft or Ultima Online.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Who would have thought this game would give such Rise to arguments!

When the opportunity to strike up an argument aRises, why not Rise to the occasio?

The sun has not yet to Rise where I live, and yet I just did aRise out of bed and read this. Thank you for raising this to my attention. I hope this dialogue gives rise to more productive contemplations.

IIRC Capcom have said they won't be numbering MH games anymore, but rather using subtitles they feel reflect the experience like World and Rise.

Both games are mainline are neither are spinoffs.
