Today, during a livestream from Japan, the developers of Monster Hunter Rise provided a sizable update about the game.
First of all, we get to take a look at a new trailer showcasing various aspects of the game.
Not only we see plenty of monsters, but also the ability to ride wyverns and use their power against other monsters. At the end, we see the return of Mizutsune.
After the trailer, we see a video of a new locale included in the game.
The next video is about monsters, starting with a new one named Goss Harag.
We also see more of wyvern riding, which is certainly one of the cooler new aspects of the game.
Next, a video provides a look at the base, the characters that populate it, and the facilities we can take advantage of.
We also get to see two additional videos featuring wyvern riding and the wirebug.
Last, but not least, we hear that the demo will come today, on January 7. It will include four different quests that will also feature wyvern riding. All fourteen weapon types are available and multiplayer co-op is included.
The demo will be available only until February 1.
Monster Hunter Rise will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021.
