Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Monster Hunter Rise digital event; demo out now

This game looks amazing. AMAZING!

YOU GET TO CONTROL THE MONSTERS, EVEN WHEN THEY ARE IN AIR! (though I kind of wonder if the mechanic has limited or no mobility while monsters are in the air).

KHEZU IS BACK AND LOOKS LIKE THE COOLEST YET DORKIEST PENIS MONSTER EVER!

I wasn't sure how I felt about Magnamalo, but now that I see he can shoot schmup projectiles from his tail, I think I've finely cemented that he's a very good (if maybe a bit overdesigned) monster!

Kind of annoying the demo releases today but wasn't just shadow dropped after the livestream, ugh!

I just hope this is running on Switch .... :/

Holy guacamole, haven't been this hyped in years.

From the Wirebug moves to the new Palamute companions to the awesome new Monster designs to freaking Wyvern Riding, it just looks so insanely badass and fun.

They've really gone the extra mile to deliver a unique, bespoke experience rather than just Monster Hunter World Lite, and I frankly would've been more than happy with the latter, but this is even better.

The next 77 days is gonna feel like an eternity.



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

For those who want to try it, the demo is live now:

Question: they said that the demo will be available until the 1st of February. Does anyone know if this means that it's downloadable until then, or that it's also only playable until then?

Downloadable and playable until then.

Once the date is reached, there will be no more demos available even downloaded ones.



I might try that demo. Never touched a Monster Hunter game in my life but this looks interesting.



Signature goes here!

The demo broke the eShop.



I've tried Monster Hunter games in the past but was never really able to get into them. I'm trying the demo for Rise and am enjoying it a lot more than the ones I already own, and it seems at least slightly easier to understand. Also the game is GORGEOUS. Probably top 5 best looking Switch games for me.



Looks interesting. Tried the demo of the current MH game on Switch and wasn't interested. Might try this one out though. Good to hear its apparently a fantastic implementation of the MH series.

Also the demo broke the Switch shop yesterday! Which means this thing is going to have absurd sales! Finally there will be a third party game to compete with the sales of the big first party Nintendo games on Switch!
