Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Official Monster Hunter Rise Thread

So, the game is close enough for me to finally let me hype up. Therefore I am joining the thread now. Game is already since the first reveal.

I am both excited and anxious. Excited for the first Monster Hunter on a big screen since Tri (or 3G on WiiU). Well, I don't have a PS4 or Xbox One, so I didn't try World. And I don't really count Generations. While the 3Ds-version were cool, Monster Hunter is a game which I think needs to be played on a big screen. Not for graphics, but to see details. If I can hear a Great Jaggi in some distance but only see him as 10 pixels on 3DS, that is kinda disappointing. So for me Rise will be the first big screen MonHun since quite some time (although I tend to play a little 3G from time to time, if I feel like it).

Anxious, because I heard about the streamlining in World and fear it may take out the thing that makes MonHun a great series. Don't get me wrong, some things are overly cumbersome in old MonHun. But a lot of making this great is watching the monster as you fight it and look for hints of what your attacks do. Or gear up specifically for the monster you fight and plan a way to go. I love the new mobility options though, I think fluid mobility is often very helpful. I hope though that fighting isn't too fast, as the somewhat slower attacks allowed to build a lot of depth in different weapons. Anyways, I guess I will see in a few weeks.

For what I gather so far: great monsters are revealed. They look awesome and they already showed a lot of attack patterns. The game itself looks better than should be allowed on Switch, even more surprising as MonHun never was the looker. The rampage looks and wyvern riding are sweet. And the now continuous environments without loading screens are very welcome.

A little less than two weeks now, time to get hyped.

Welcome!

I'm in the same boat as this being my first big screen Monster Hunter since Tri/3. I also feel the series just works better as a console experience.

From watching footage, weapons like the Great Sword, Hammer, Charge Blade, etc are still slow compared to most other melee action games, while even weapons like the sword and shield and dual blades don't seem any faster than in, say, 3U/4U. And you can turn off things like damage numbers too, which I'm going to.



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

Just got home with my copy of the game!

Setting up my file and customizing my character and doggie now, will post impressions once I get into the actual gameplay!

EDIT: Okay, gone on my first quest! Even just customizing my character and dog was fun as heck, you get tons of options and most look great. 

First of, the soundtrack's awesome, with a lot of traditional Japanese instrumentation and singing giving it a very distinct and appealing flavour.

The dialogue is sharply written and localized with the franchise's trademark humour, it runs smooth and looks crisp, and once you get used to them the wirebug controls feel fantastic and make the act of traversal in itself a joy.

So far I really have no complaints at all.

Okay, I've now slain several main monsters, built my first armor set, (full Great Izuchi, which i think I'll stick with for this tier) and crafted the bone sword and shield as well as upgrading the base Kamura dual blades.

They weren't kidding when they said they upped the pace; I was shocked to only have to kill Great Izuchi twice to craft his armor, in MH3 you had to kill a monster like 8-10 times to get a full set. I sure ain't complaining though.

With over 1000 hours of MH3 and hundreds of MH4 under my belt I have yet to actually die, but that's not to say it's a cakewalk as already the monsters are starting to keep me on my toes. 

The quality of life improvements from World like fast gathering, not having to stand still to drink a potion, and having a seamless map instead of separate zones are all very welcome.

Who else is on the hunting trail, is it just me so far?

Not into these games but visually this game seems like a marvel on Switch hardware. Insanely impressive to me. Wow, Capcom!

I got up to the point I can now do 3 star quests. I'm really liking it so far. Tho I wish they had more hair options in the character creator. Having only one afro centric hairstyle is lame



Managed to "play" 3 hours yesterday, but, here's the thing, I never got past the character creation screen. As ridiculous as that sounds, the editor, while not too deep, it's deep enough to waste my time putting details here and there on my MC. To top it off, there are THREE characters you must customize. The dog and cat don't have too many options available but you still can change their colors however you like, so here you have me experimenting with every possible combination. It's horrifying, and I know I only have myself to blame for this but I love and hate when games have this option. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

My first MH game ever. So far I like it but to me the combat is still challangeing. Right now it’s more button mashing than controlled movements. I also have a hard time figuring out how to effectivley bind the monsters with wire bugs, they mostley seem to get away from me before I have a chance to deal any damage.



Ive played 25 hours already.. way better then World, atleast for me



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)
