Alright, looks interesting. I'm a big fan of Monster Hunter but didn't like a number of the changes in World. Hopefully this one ignores some of the changes World brought.

Hold on, is that a climb-anything BotW style mechanic in the trailer?

On one hand - awesome! On the other hand - hate that it's locked to Nintendo hardware. Switch Pro or Switch 2 can't come soon enough.

*edit

It literally ate the concept of tailraiders. The grappling bug at least looks more fun than clutch claw.

Watching that trailer, I basically got the feeling of "MHW Lite". Love the new monsters though.

I kinda wanna be hyped because i didn't used my switch for the last 2 years or so but then i thought about a couple of things...

Is online multyplayer gaming on switch still the worst shit ever?
Is this a new game or just mhw with a couple of new monsters?
This shit is gonna be 30 fps right??

The graphics looks pretty good for a switch title, i'm surprised.

Those sure are some visuals, lol.

It really is no biggie, given the appeals of the series, but worth commenting on. Switch can do better than what we see here.

On the whole, really happy to see MH back on Nintendo for an installment. I can't wait to have some time to look at it properly, beyond peeking in for a few seconds at a time.

2 companions, one attack and support, and you can carry both on a hunt.

This seems to be a real update for the more traditional monster hunter line

Looks fun. I think the portable nature alone would make me play it more than I did World, which was also really good of course.

Rise looks incredible. Probably not gonna get my wish of the Arts / Styles returning, but the mobility and expanded level design are a fair exchange. I can already tell I'll put more hours into it than World.

I like the retro PS2/PSP graphical look.

I'm not being funny, I really do. It's how Monster Hunter was meant to be.

I'm actually glad they went back to the old art style but it's updated. Didn't really care for the "realistic" art in mhw. I still prefer segmented arenas instead of open but oh well it is what it is.

Was a surprise, I have never been able to get into or enjoy monster hunter myself. This one though has me intrigued looks like travelling will be fun. I’m definitely going to give it a go

I can see myself able to playing this solo and still have tons of fun like I do with Souls/Bloodborne.
It's curious because, while I had a lot of fun playing solo, I also had some of my best online experiences just playing with randoms.
No bad vibes or bad talk, just some people working together to later dance or do silly things on the mission over screen.

Argh! This might make me renew my nintendo online subscription. ^^u

That verticality and mobility is gonna go nicely with my usual lance and hammer. Is glaive basically pointless now or have they turned it into a half-melee/half-ranged weapon?

Now the question has to be asked, can Switch beat the DS in Japan?

I think it's possible, I thought they would be lazy with Monster Hunter on Switch but this is a full blooded game, people are going to go Gaga for this!!

I myself really not in to playing with others, the MH World felt like its mostly about playing with others because of the scale but in MH Rise it feels like I can still have fun playing it Solo without worry about the Co-op parts. Its how I play Souls games, my entire joy playing those type of games is to explore and beat bosses by myself.

Very nice, looks like another game to add to the growing library. I don’t care what people think or say of the Switch it really has outshined many other much more powerful consoles this gen.
Yeah totally! Aside from Nintendo´s lack of first-party new games, it has a really good library, specially for indies which play like a charm on handheld mode.

Any weapon classes standing out to people, based on the footage? I'm always torn between picking up my old faithfuls (lance, hammer, LBG) and trying out the new hotness.

Looks amazing. Definitely getting it day 1. The mobility looks like Breath of the Wild + Ninja Gaiden, and you have wolf mounts and a weird sparkle double jump!?
