This kinda just looks like they updated some character models to put on top of some 3DS game they never finished making.

It could be pretty sweet, don't get me wrong, but it just does not look like a native Switch game at all. I expected more from it visually.
Open your eyes







Monster Hunter Rise is the best looking Nintendo Switch game.

I specifically mentioned the models being updated...

The levels in the gameplay videos look really low poly as if they were first designed for a 3DS. It's just an observation. It doesn't look like development started on the Switch to me.

Both character and monster models are being rendered in a new RE engine with a new assets and animations.

Just show me which game in Nintendo Switch has the same or above MHR technical level in term of graphics.

In fact MHR graphically not really different than MHW at all only colours and a few graphical details like armors and weapons design.

It looks good for a Switch game. Kinda bummed to see all these new gimmick moves and anti-commit mechanics. I thought World was veering off into that territory a bit, and this is just further embracing it. It's starting to look more like a cuuuhhhrraaaazy DMC action game than a MH game. It's all good and fine if that's the case in LR/HR, but when the eventual G rank comes around it's going to be more spammy shit from monsters with basically huge "don't attack me now" phases to "balance" the new player agility. I had very little fun in Iceborne compared to base MH:W for this reason, and I hated Clutch Claw after I saw why they added it. It changes the game from "learn the moves and learn to predict" to "lol just bash him and attack while he's down GG EZ", also see tenderize mechanic.

Here's a re-host of all of the weapon trailers en francais, since it looks like a few were mistakenly released early and taken down:


I'm really really disappointed in IG. They just essentially get 2 more air jumps. Considering air attacks were already lower damage than just standing and doing the standard ground combo, they better have bumped up the MVs a bit if they want people to play this way.

SnS looks HOT though with the new rush finishers. My other usual "main", Switch Axe, got a lot of the bombastic attacks like longsword. We'll see how it feels to play, but I still think it's too jumpy and fast paced for MH. Also, I hope to hell we can turn off these audio clips from our characters. I don't want to listen to "GET READY FOR THIS!" 10000 times, and it was really not necessary for them to add.

I hope they include a Monster Hunter gibberish voice option like they did in World.

SnS, Gunlance, Insect Glaive, and Hammer trailers.





I'm not bothering w the hammer video since that's a freebie weapon. Played it since MHF2 so I know it by heart. Gunlance has always looked cool to me but when I compare it to the lance I hate the lack of mobility options. Lance, despite its size, is one of the fastest most ninja weapons in the franchise. Gunlance has always been slow. The silkstring mobility options may make me try out Gunlance for real for the first time. That sharpness-restoring move also addresses one of the most obnoxious aspects of the GL so that's cool.

Some of the weapon changes have been from meh to nope, but the Gunlance seems pretty fucking cool. It really needed some quality of life love.

I think it's really unfortunate in a way that the pc version of this was leaked or that we know a pc version is coming. This might have been the first switch game in a while that I would have gotten for the system.

Now I'm quite keen to wait.

Seems like every (or at least, almost every) weapon class now has one or more guard point / counter point / invul dodge / etc, which is nice.

Only reason why I played charge blade in MH4U was to abuse the broken guardpoint technique. I loved how Generations / GU gave the player several similar styles (Adept, Valor) so that weapons could be played more-or-less like a charge blade.

Not a big fan of the HH redesign. I realise that as one of the least used weapons they had to do something, but it feels wrong. I always liked that it was slow but each hit felt deliberate and satisfying. Now it looks like you're using the dual blades...

It looks like he's stringing together a bunch of specials / finishers. I don't see the flash of the notes being played, so I'm guessing they deliberately omitted the more "boring" aspects of the HH.

Quick Edit: what I mean is, they omitted the more "boring" aspects of the HH from the trailer.

If they really got rid of the notes and the song-lists, the revamp better be really solid.

Monster Hunter Asia on Facebook released a new video on HH, it looks like the attack still similar to the old HH:

Is the game being rendered at native resolution? Or is it only the UI? it looks very clean.

Can't wait to try that demo.

It tells me the download may not start right away depending on server status or something. And it hasn't started, so I guess too many people are trying to get it.

edit - It downloaded, yay!

It took me a few attempts to get the download going. Turning off the Switch didn't seem to work, but letting it sit on the home screen seemed to work.

Just did the easy hunt. That's enough to sell me on the full game. I wish this were coming out sooner.

Is this gameplay more like traditional MH or babys first monster hunt like World ? Sort of looks like a cross. I'll probably download this weekend and check it out .

I only did the beginner hunt but it’s world more than classic. Some QOL improvements too.

Well my demo won't download, I guess Nintendo's servers are being overtaxed. Not sure i even care though after watching a couple of streams of it in action, visually it looks good (better art style than MH world) but the framerate actually makes me want to vomit. I'll hold out and see if a PC version gets announced.

Played a beginner hunt on the demo. So far just the longsword.

I like it. I like it very much.

Both this and monster hunter story 2 have my attention.
